Sony’s PlayStation Now game streaming service just got a big upgrade. You can now download PS2 and PS4 games from PlayStation Now to your PS4 so you can play them offline without the need to stream them.
Sony says “Almost all PS4 games in the service, including Bloodborne, God of War 3 Remastered, NBA 2K16, and Until Dawn, will be available for download, in addition to the PS Now lineup of classic PS2 games remastered for PS4.” The best part is, all of this is included in your current subscription. No added charge.
Games that you download from PlayStation Now will support any DLC or Micro DLC that you have purchased for the game. PS4 pro enhancements are also available for certain games for those who are playing on a PS4 Pro console.
If you have already started streaming a game and would like to continue your progress on a downloaded version, Sony has a guide on how you can do so here.
If you don’t subscribe to PlayStation Now and are interested in doing so, there is a promotion currently underway until September 25th.
“Try PS Now for a full month at just $9.99 (new subscribers only) with our special intro offer, or get a full year for just $99.99 USD. And if you’re a PS Plus member, you can take advantage of the exclusive discount on the 3‑month pass for PS Now for just $29.99 ($44.99 regular price). Although note that in order to take advantage of the $9.99 intro offer, you will need to purchase that directly, as the 7‑day trial will transition into the standard monthly subscription.”
