You may be playing Uncharted 4 on your PC real soon. PlayStation Now, Sony’s streaming service for PC and PlayStation 4, will start supporting PS4 games in the near future, the publisher said today.


Sony hasn’t yet said which PS4 games they’ll be adding to PlayStation Now—which costs $20/month and currently lets you stream a large selection of PS3 games—but they say they’ll be launching a beta test “in the next few weeks.”

It remains to be seen how this will stack up compared to Microsoft’s recently announced Xbox Game Pass, which is a downloadable subscription rather than a streaming one. Here’s hoping Sony adds PS1 and PS2 games soon, too.

“Here’s hoping Sony adds PS1 and PS2 games soon, too.”

Fuck. That.

I am not paying them a subscription fee to play the PS1 classics I already fucking own. There is no valid excuse for why the PS4 can’t play PS1/PS2 classics. I don’t ever expect PS3 emulation, but PS1 classics can be played on PSP, PS3, AND Vita...but not’s rather infuriating.
