In an effort to boost PlayStation Now, Sony just added 22 new titles to its cloud gaming subscription service, including two games from the popular Uncharted trilogy: Among Thieves and Drake's Deception.
PlayStation Now is the company's cloud gaming service that lets subscribers play games from a selection of PlayStation 3 titles on PlayStation consoles. Although PlayStation Now was originally announced in 2014, the service really hasn't yet caught on with gamers.
Sony hopes to change that, though, by adding this new series of games, including two Uncharted titles, especially now that the fourth game in that franchise, A Thief's End, arrives in May 2016. These games are in addition to the 400 or so games already available through the service, which costs $19.99 per month or $44.99 for three months. However, many players believe that these prices are too high for something that is, basically, a Netflix service for games.
Here is the full list of games that Sony just added to PlayStation Now. Please note that Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was already available on the service, so the addition of the Among Thieves and Drake's Deception makes that trilogy complete for subscribers on PlayStation Now.
– Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
– Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
– Ratchet & Clank All 4 One
– Eat Them!
– Go! Puzzle
– Pixeljunk Racers 2nd Lap
– Armageddon Riders
– Big Sky: Infinity
– Invizimals the Lost Kingdom
– Savage Moon
– God of War: Ghost of Sparta HD
– God of War: Chains of Olympus HD
– Anarchy: Rush Hour
– Ricochet HD
For players interested in trying out PlayStation Now, all those who sign up will get a free trial week to see if it's for them. All subscribers will also need a broadband Internet connection with at least 5 Mbps, a Sony Entertainment Network account (signing up for that is free) and a DualShock 3 or 4 wireless controller.
Also, players should note that PlayStation Now is completely separate from Sony's PlayStation Plus, the company's other subscription service that offers a series of games each month free to members, as well as discounts in the PlayStation store. That service runs for $9.99 per month or $49.99 per year.
