Can't stream PS4 and PS2 games? PlayStation Now adds downloads

Rumor: Free PS Plus Games for October Include Nioh and Diablo 3

Rumor: Free PS Plus Games for October Include Nioh and Diablo 3

The move potentially makes PlayStation Now a much more attractive subscription offer for PlayStation 4 users since the ability to play numerous games available through its library will no longer rely on access to a fast internet connection.

PlayStation Plus September has been pretty generous for users since they got Destiny 2 and God of War III, which are massively popular titles, one being a current generation game, while God of War III is a remaster.

Starting today, PlayStation Now users will be able to stream as well as download PlayStation Now games to their PlayStation 4 in order to play both locally and offline, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced. However, there was a big question mark as to why PS3 titles aren't also available for download.

Ah, but there is a catch - if you've already started playing a game via streaming and want to move your save to your PS4, you'll have to sign up for PlayStation Plus to make the transfer. And remember, you do not need a PlayStation Plus membership for online multiplayer on PS Now - which stays the same for both streaming and downloaded games.

‘Inconclusive’ post mortems on Egypt hotel holiday couple
The Coopers were on a Thomas Cook holiday at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel in Hurghada last month when they fell ill. Post-mortems on a couple who died while on holiday in Egypt have not found their cause of death , lawyers have said.

PlayStation Now subscriptions are currently $9.99 for the first month for new subscribers, with a full year going for $99.99. What you might not know is that we're closing in on the end of the service's summer sale price.

While it has been a long-requested and even rumored feature, PlayStation Now has been purely a streaming service since it launched in 2014.

The download feature is not quite happening "now" in a blanket sense, but will be gradually rolled out to subscribers over the course of the next few days.
