PlayStation Now is a great service that lets subscribers play new games. This service works similar to Xbox One’s Gold Live, but it’s going to be even better in the upcoming future. Sony announced today that PlayStation Now will allow subscribers to download games directly on their PlayStation 4 which means that they can play games offline.
PlayStation Now Offline
The only downside of PlayStation Now was that subscribers needed to connect their console to a Wi-Fi network. Fortunately, this requirement is now being scrapped because PlayStation Now subscribers will be able to download the games they like and play them while offline.
“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 PS2,” said Senior Marketing Manager Brian Dunn.
PlayStation 2 Games
The cool thing about PlayStation Now is the fact that it will also make it possible for subscribers to download classic PlayStation 2 games. This is a nice addition to the service and we can be sure that PlayStation 4 fans are going to enjoy it.
Bad Internet Connection
We should also mention that the biggest issue that PlayStation 4 fans had with the PlayStation Now service is that AAA games required strong Wi-Fi networks in order to work and this made it impossible for some fans to enjoy the games because they didn’t have good internet bandwidth in their homes.
Expected Release Date
Sony didn’t announce the official launch date for PlayStation Now’s new feature, but Senior Marketing Manager Brian Dunn did say that its going to happen during the next couple of days. Therefore, PlayStation 4 fans will not have to wait that much longer until they can play PlayStation Now games while offline.
