@Th3solution That is probably what I'm gonna do. Might be pushing it for them to be included in the summer sale, seeing as it would have not long been introduced. But you never know, but I reckon black Friday will be more likely.

Hmm think my plus subscription is due to expire August-ish. If I can get a cheap enough push to the extra tier it might be possible to cram in Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding (both I've intended to pick up at some point!) before it runs out. Will probably give it a go if I have the opportunity.

@Voltan yeah, although I personally am not remotely interested that is what I’d assume to be a tempting games selection for the masses.

I wasn't too excited about the PS3 streaming but now I know I'll get to play those Ratchet and Clank games at the very least

Funny thing is that (at least for me) I didn't expect much from this. Yet Sony has such a huge catalogue that putting these games on a service already looks massive and at least in my eyes - much better than Gamepass.
Especially for people new to the ecosystem, this list of games is insane.

Yup it looks to be at least as good as imho 🤔

@Voltan I've played through those R&C games on Now. Shame they aren't emulated on the PS5 but they played well enough via streaming and I only really felt the lag once I'd played R&C PS4 and tried to go back.

Looks like a good selection of games so far though. I'm unlikely to play many but it's good to see that they are there if I want them.

Unfortunately I seem to own most of the big hitters already but I can’t really complain about that! It’s a decent list but they really need to add to the retro offerings. From the looks of things, the PS2 support was a little white lie, it’s only the exact same PS4 remasters that were included with PS Now so far. Also, they’re removing some of the better PS3 games from Now.

Yeah, I can't see me sticking with the new service after my existing sub runs out. I never play online and already own 90% of the retro games I want to play. Trophies would have probably swung it, alongside not having to plug and unplug another console, but money is getting tight these days so it's an easy saving.

I'm assuming the games announced is just a partial list to whet the appetite, and in that regard it's fine since I really wanted Jumping Flash and Kurushi and we got them. But I still need to see the full list before I see if I'm signing up to this thing, and honestly, now I know that you can just buy the games a la carte the subscription is a much tougher sell to me.

I never got Gamepass. When I was a kid and had no money I'd be all over it, but I'm at the point now where I have so many games that I could not buy games for like another three years and I'd still be fine gaming. The number of games ain't the problem, and throwing more mid-tier games into the mix doesn't appeal to me. I don't want or need access to hundreds of games.

My only interest in this PS Plus thing is the classic stuff, especially if they get trophies in there. And so far it's kinda enouraging.

Yeah I was impressed what what games were listed, especially as that was only a taster. There are enough games that I'm interested in and not played for me to consider subbing. I have no interest in retro games, so it will be the Extra tier for me.

One thing that stands out to me is the lack of Square Enix games outside of FF15 (which was already on the PS Plus Collection) and Guardians.
I'm not saying this means anything - just expected more, I guess. But also the 3rd party list they shared is pretty short, so I expect many more to be added (both by launch and afterwards).

one question that hasnt been answered yet will PlayStation exclusive games get removed after 90 days like they do on psnow?

@Voltan Technically Guardians isn’t really a Squeenix game anymore, Eidos Montreal were bought by Embracer!

@trev666 That's a two part question IMO:
1. What you said - I think it would make sense for 1st party games to be permanent and 3rd party come and go
2. Will it work like PS+ has so far - meaning once you added a game to your library you can play it anytime as long as you're subscribed to the required tier? I don't think they mentioned this but they are calling it PS Plus and this is what PS Plus has always been.

Voltan

Voltan

@nessisonett Yes and no - Squeenix wouldn't be involved in any potential sequels but they're still the publisher of this one (it's even listed as a Squeenix game). Also I don't think that deal is finalized yet.

guardians of the galaxy is a licenced game and while square sold the studio they didnt sell the game or right to make marvel games. so square could make another guardians of the galaxy game if they wanted with another developer they wont but they could

@Voltan @trev666 The head of Embracer stated that they now have the rights to both Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy’s existing versions. Which makes sense given that they’re now taking over Avengers’ live-service elements and funding its continued development.

@nessisonett Either way, Guardians is not your usual S-E game for sure. The lack of others is a bit unexpected, especially given the fact that there's a number of Final Fantasy games currently on PS Now, if I'm not mistaken.
