Can you download PS Now games on PS5? Can you download from PlayStation Now as well as stream on PS5?

As part of our PS5 guide, we'll give you all the information we know so far.

Can You Download PS Now Games On PS5?

First off, will PS Now be on PS5? Sony has confirmed that it will, but details of how PS Now will operate on PS5 are not known. However, it's highly likely that the service will retain all its features when you boot it up on PS5. We imagine you'll be able to stream or download PS2 and PS4 games, as you can on PS4, while PS3 games will remain restricted to streaming only. PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4 games, so we see no reason why you won't be able to download games to your PS5 from PlayStation Now.
