PS4 Games Are Coming To PlayStation Now
No games have been confirmed yet.
PlayStation Now will soon expand its streaming catalog to include PlayStation 4 games, Sony announced today.
Starting "soon," PlayStation Now subscribers on both PS4 and PC will have access to PS4 games in addition to the huge library of PS3 games that is already available. These will be included as part of the standard subscription, not as some kind of premium add-on, and there's no indication--at least at this point--that the service's price ($20/month or $45/three months) will be going up.
That said, no specific games have been confirmed as of yet, but it seems safe to assume they'll be smaller or older games, rather than something like Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Before PS4 games go live for all PlayStation Now members, Sony will launch a "private test" that will be open to select subscribers in the "next few weeks." Those chosen will be notified by email.
This news comes not long after Sony announced that PlayStation Now support on platforms other than PC and PS4 will be shut down in the coming months. It said at the time, "[W]e decided to shift our focus and resources to PS4 and Windows PC to further develop and improve the user experience on these two devices. This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further."
Introducing PS4 games appears to be the first part of making good on that.
