The PlayStation Now subscription service launched last week on the PlayStation 4, with a free one week subscription available to everyone. This review is based on my experience with the service after I participated in the trial and i have paid for a subscription.

The long awaited service launched with 107 titles available to stream instantly, including titles such as ‘The Last of Us’ ‘God of War: Ascension’ ‘Bioshock Infinite’ ‘The Walking Dead Season 1’ and many others, with many more to come. The current goal is to get all, or as many as possible, PlayStation 3 games on the service, and then look at the older generation of games. The Service is $19.99 a month or $44.99 for 3 months (roughly $15 a month) and this subscription allows you to stream any game available on the service indefinitely, as long as you are a subscriber.

While playing, I encountered few issues with the service, being kicked completely out of a game twice, but the issues do exist. The primary issue encountered is lagging in the stream, which can make it hard to play the games at points.psnow-logo-centered-threecolum-us-05jun14 I highly recommend paying hardwired into your router instead of WiFi and this should fix a good number of issues. If you are worried your internet isn’t good enough to stream you can test the connection through the store before you download the service.

For me, this service is highly worth it, for the shear number of current and promised games. Games that i personally never got to finish or even play. So I recommend everyone try the trial at the least and see if this is a good fit for them.

What are your opinions on the service so far? Have any Games you would like us to review? Let us know below and don’t forget to check us out on Facebook by clicking here.
