PlayStation Now Games

PlayStation Now is a subscription service that provides hundreds of PS2, PS3 and PS4 games to play on demand. The games are streamed to your PS4, PS5 or Windows PC like a Netflix film but with interactions. Because of this you need a fast internet connection of about 5Mbps. Additionally, PlayStation Now also lets you download some PlayStation 4 games to play locally on your system without streaming.

  • PlayStation Now costs £8.99/month

Additionally, you can play online multiplayer games with other PlayStation Now members as well as those playing disc or download versions of the game. You do not need an additional PS Plus membership to do this.
