The famed DOA hand-to-hand combat is enhanced with new content that extends the experience.

      Dreaming has never hurt anyone.

      • Revolver Ocelot

        I’m dreaming that PSN will be good.

    • XbotMK1

      And we could look at this another way. The slow death of Steam, DRM over priced, under utilized, hacker infested, and slave to Microsoft Windows PC hardware begins.

      Sony allready confirmed that PlayStation hardware isn’t going any where. But even if PlayStation hardware was going away, it wouldn’t matter. Consoles and video games are a service no matter what platform it is. PlayStation Now simply removes the need for expensive hardware. PlayStation Now still requires you to pay Sony on Sony devices. Removing PlayStation hardware from the equation does not mean no money for Sony. If anything, it would increase Sony’s profits, so your comment doesn’t make sense.

      PC loses. Now, lets see your hilariously delusional reply. lol

        • DiFiasco

          shitrat? LMAO!
          Reading on – I see you think Valve is making more money than Sony? Not only is that incorrect for 2015, if you exclude the non-entertainment divisions (which Sony is selling off) – Sony is MAKING billions profit whereas Steam is probably around 100 million profit/annum (which is still very good but get real)

          http://www.forbes.com/sites/oliverchiang/2011/02/15/valve-and-steam-worth-billions/

          • Steven Hiller

            Oooo that’s a terrible argument. Life insurance, that’s the only place Sony makes money. Go ahead look it up. Consoles haven’t been huge profit centers since the 90’s and they should be treated that way.

          • DiFiasco

            cite the link – i’m not about to go researching YOUR counterpoint lol

          • Steven Hiller

            I don’t feel I need to post a link to something that’s common knowledge. Pretending that Sony is doing ok just sounds stupid.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            You know they posted a profit last quarter because of the ps4 right? Lol

            Come on let’s hear your shitty counter argument so I can destroy you like every single time we have ever had a debate.

            Should I just drop the mic now? Save us both some time?

          • Steven Hiller

            I glad you think arguing with me is some epic stage you can “drop the MIC” on unfortunately I don’t feel the same about you. It says alot that the biggest pony in here games on an XBOX. As for Sony, posted $140 million profit for the quarter lost $1.4 billion on the year. 1.4 billion and they’re still making all the same mistakes like holding on to that tv business. Fingers crossed everybody!

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            I game on all systems ;) I just take issue with fanboys like you who have no clue what they’re talking about.

            Glad you accept Sony are starting to turn a profit ;)

    • Revolver Ocelot

      Very true.

  • XbotMK1

    PC fan boys are extremely scared of PlayStation Now. I don’t blame them. PC will become more irrelevant than ever when you can just run bypass Steam and PCs and just run Minecraft or DOTA from your TV. The PlayStation 4 is destroying Steam and Xbox, and with PlayStation Now Sony will be reaching the maximum audience and allowing more people to play their IPs.

    PlayStation Now also prevents cheating and piracy, two of the largest downfalls of the dying PC market. lol

    • The PC Master Race

      $1.5 billion in losses :^)

      The cloud cant save Sony. And no one wants to play laggy videos at 20FPS or PS4 games at 20FPS

      • youaresoaboveme

        Please link to your source. I want to see evidence of this “1.5 billion in losses”

        • The PC Master Race
          • youaresoaboveme

            Wow, you can use google. Good for you. Next time read the article. Nothing to do with playstation on it. Also please tell me why you are here. This is an article. About playstation. It’s clear you hate sony, but there is literally no reason for jackasses like you to go around picking fights. You’re like those christians who go stand outsite gay pride parades and shout about them going to hell. You put yourself on this little pedestal with a smug look on your face like “I am so much better than all these people.” Just go back to masturbating to pictures of Gabe Newell and leave us alone

          • The PC Master Race

            No, cancerous shill. Sony is cancer and you are going to hell.

          • cromthelaughinggod7

            People are not going spend 2k to buy a decent pc sorry you fail bro.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            no one cares HA HA HA HA

          • The PC Master Race

            So much asshurt. You care so much :^)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            no one cares lol thats why you have to hijack console conversations….NO ONE CARES ha ha ha ha ;)

          • The PC Master Race

            So much care from you, shitrat :^)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            HA HA HA HA HA HA no one cares

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Literally no one cares lol ;)

          • The PC Master Race

            So much butthurt :^)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            so much lack of caring LOL

          • The PC Master Race

            That is a lot of care there :^)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HA HA no one cares

      • XbotMK1

        Then why do most PC owners play games at 30 fps with massive screen tearing? PC performance is a joke. Most PC owners don’t have PCs strong enough to run games at 60 fps unless it’s low quality games like Minecraft or DOTA. Most PC owners don’t have PCs strong enough to run a game that looks as good as Bloodborne at 60 fps. You keep owning yourself.

        Most played games on steam:

        http://www.pcgamer.com/minecraft-boasts-nearly-one-million-concurrent-users-is-likely-the-most-popular-game-on-pc/

        If Bloodborne was 60 fps on the PS4 you would just say, “well it’s graphics are bad” or “It’s not 120 fps.”

        Your moving goal posts because you know PC loses lol

        • The PC Master Race

          Still better than the console versions, shitrat

          • XbotMK1

            You mean that hacker infested and piracy infested clusterf*ck of a device you call a PC is better than consoles? Nope, nice try.

            How long have you waited for GTA V on PC? What is really sad is that most PC owners don’t have PCs strong enough to run GTAV. They will have to spend more money for a stronger PC than the cost of a current gen console, to even run it at better settings than console. Then you get to enjoy the hacker infested GTAV multiplayer on Steam DRM and horrible network. Get ready to obey Microsoft and update your OS. Hopefully it doesn’t ruin your PC.

            PC LOSES, just admit it lol

          • The PC Master Race

            60FPS
            Mods
            Private servers
            More grass
            Steam survey shows over 75% of PC owners can run GTA V comfortably
            Recommended card for 1080P 60FPS is only $130
            No lag switching like pathetic console kiddies do when they are losing
            No hackers like the console versions of GTA:O due to Steamworks and VAC Anti-Cheat

            Consoles lose again, John Derp :^)

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Forgive him. He copied my account. Fucking piece of shit is what he is.
            But what you say is 100% correct.

      • Country Boy Lucifer

        no one cares ha ha ha ha

        • The PC Master Race

          Butthurt to the extreme I see :^)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            not caring to the extreme ha ha ha ha ha ha ha :)

          • The PC Master Race

            So much care to the extreme. You really are upset

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            haha ha ha ah ha ha ha ah aha aha NO

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            one

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            CARESSSSSS lol

    • bardock5151

      Awesome. ALWAYS ONLINE, and Sony started it. Well done, you idiots who support this business model will allow Sony to completely ignore a hardware release next gen, in favour of ALWAYS ONLINE. Except you have to be ALWAYS ONLINE to play no matter what.

      • Country Boy Lucifer

        You sir are an idiot

        • bardock5151

          You sir, are too aggressive. Just wait for E3, Sony will be very PS now focused.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Hmmm considering the numerous games that we know are in development but have yet to be announced I’m betting that Sony’s E3 is ps4 focused.

            Not to mention the fact that Sony have flat out said to investors that the ps4 is the corner stone of their new business strategy.

            You really haven’t got a clue what you’re talking about have you? lol

            Bitterness is a hell of a thing

          • bardock5151

            Playstation is the cornerstone of their business strategy. Just Playstation.

            You’ll see. Gaming as a service and it’ll be Sony to do it.

            Keep your idiocy to yourself. People like you don’t see what’s happening until you’re apart of it.

            Ignorance is bliss apparently.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Actually they said that ps4 was the cornerstone of their business with hardware sales account for their first profit in god knows how long.

            You really are bitter about the ps4’s success aren’t you?

            you offered no reply to the fact that e3 will be focused primarily on the ps4?

            You ignored the unannounced exclusives i mentioned?

            You sir have zero clue what you’re talking about.

            When the next generation of consoles arrives I don’t see them being anything like what we have now, in fact I see a Sony and an MS version of a steam machine.

            Gaming as a service like ps now will exist and it’s a great thing, it will never replace owning a game.

          • bardock5151

            All those new games will be exclusive only to hardware? Or quite likely be made available for PS now? New games can go to both services, especially if they want to push PS now.

            Don’t get in a hissy fit and attack me just because I’ve pointed out how aggressively Sony are pushing towards PS now and gaming as a service.

            http://www.inquisitr.com/1229116/playstation-5-not-a-real-sony-console-ps5-may-flip-xbox-one-online-only-criticism-with-playstation-now/

            http://wccftech.com/sony-ps5-console-based-cloud/

            Sony’s execs aren’t too sure either way. I can tell you now, if the service gains momentum and starts to rival hardware sales then Sony will likely drop out of the hardware race.

            You can bury your head in the sand all you want, but Sony are chasing a locked in, restricted service for all of you to fawn over.

            Whatever PS4’s success is doesn’t matter to me. (obviously to you as you tend to consistently bring it up) What matters to me is if Sony’s business model of gaming as a service takes off, then I have to hope Microsoft stick with physical or ill be back to PC like I was before the OG Xbox. Hopefully by then aim bots and cheats are sorted out.

            It’s quite funny, you keep saying i have no clue. Lol, you might want to think about that for a minute. Go do some research, and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two… Maybe.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            So has netflix and amazon prime killed the DVD industry? NO

            I rest my case you’re an idiot

            PS now and PS4 now can easily exist side by side and will exist side by side

          • bardock5151

            Wow. You are dense.

            Fun fact: Brick and mortar rental stores are being killed off by Netflix and Amazon. The exact industry that was in direct competition.

            Fun quiz: Who still buys CD’s? Do kids these days even know what a CD is? The first casualty of digital media.

            I rest my case you are an idiot.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Fun fact ps now isn’t in direct competition with the sale of video games……dumb ass

            Who cares about who buys CD’s? mediums die and CD’s are one of them so yes you do have spotify etc but you also have people buying CD’s and buying albums digitally.

            So what are you talking about? are you talking about having a digital future or are you talking about ps now being the only service in town from Sony?

            you have no clue what you’re talking about

          • bardock5151

            Lol, alright I’ll have to dumb this down a bit more for you.

            The PS5 will be a medium for playing your games.
            PS now will be a medium for playing your games.
            Both are controlled by one company.
            That company has already stated that they are unsure if there will be a proper hardware release.
            If PS now takes off, PS5 as proper hardware is dead because it’ll be redundant.

            I hope I don’t need to dumb it down any further for you? I honestly can’t.

            Or are you just that stupid.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            ha ha ha you are speculating (from a very uneducated stance might I add) about next gen consoles when current gen has been out barely a year!!!!

            PS now will be a rental service as netflix is.

            ps5 will be hardware to play games on.

            you can rent games or you can buy games….that will not chnage however you are saying it will…..you’re wrong

            you’re only problem is being a fanboy….stop it

          • bardock5151

            So you say I’m speculating (of course I am, I cant see the future) from an uneducated position yet funnily enough, I’m the only one to provide factual link’s found through research on the subject. Meanwhile you sit there smashing away at your keyboard throwing out insults like a child, making hopelessly incorrect analogy’s and assumptions.

            Your constant personal attacks just simply show that the validity of my statements has more than enough merit to cause you concern on the matter.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            great come back, ignored every single point I made.

            I’ll reiterate them for you

            PS now is a service much like netflix.

            This service can and will exist in conjunction with consoles and PC

            Just like you can still buy DVD’s, dedicated DVD and blue ray players and download and own movies digitally.

            So to summerise, you will be able to subscribe to psnow, you will still be able to buy games

          • bardock5151

            Why would Sony release an expensive piece of hardware that barely breaks into being profitable, when they can just cut straight to software profits, which is where they make most of there money anyway, and cut’s down on R&D cost’s too.

            Good to see you still can’t connect the dots.

            You keep going back to movies as though it’s some great point to your argument. It really isn’t. Netflix and all streaming services of the like have helped to pretty much kill off most brick and mortar rental stores. And did you know that pretty much every connected device can stream your movies now? You don’t need to buy a bluray player, or a DVD player anymore, I know a few people who have completely ditched them, all they have now is a receiver, speakers, TV and a streaming device.

            Movies are going to be the next front on the digital kill list. Physical media and the need for dedicated hardware for your CD’s is now pretty much dead. You can still buy a CD player and CD’s, but it’s now just inconvenient and pointless. I remember many people telling me digital wouldn’t take off and kill CD’s, but oops, they have an IPhone and tablets, which contain all their digital music, and streaming apps for movies.

            I’ll say it again. You’re one of those people who won’t even see it coming.

            So to summarize, an all digital service pays far more, and Sony has just caught on to that.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            OK so you’re now talking about an all digital future. This will happen….

            You originally were saying that sony would only have ps now as a streaming service and the hardware will be a streaming box.

            This won’t happen.

            As I’ve said from the very beginning I see the new generation of consoles basically being steam boxes with upgradeable components.

            PS now is not the ps store and never will be, it’s a different service much like netflix!

            what you’re not getting is that software will still be developed and sold digitally……that is NOT what ps now does….dumb ass

          • bardock5151

            Sony will move to streaming. A full cloud service with no need for a traditional console. Just a streaming box, or their TV’s as they just allowed.

            It will happen, maybe you can buy the games, but i believe it will be a subscription service hopefully better than what they have now.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            LOL I love how this future Sony is entirely in your head

          • bardock5151

            Cool, so where does your idea of where Sony is going reside? As I’ve said, the majority of people never would have thought digital would’ve taken off as it has. And that’s the point, too many people don’t understand how quickly it all changes. Probably because they are too young, or don’t pay attention to life.

            Don’t answer, one because you don’t matter and two because you simply have no ability to engage in a discussion.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            LOL who on the planet thought “digital wouldn’t take off”

            I’ve already told you where I think sony will “reside” in the same place MS and Valve will. Upgradeable steam boxes.

            Will you be able to stream games? yeah of course you will but you’ll be able to purchase digitally and play offline as well just as you do with steam.

            probably be able to get physical copies for years yet to come as well

          • Steven Hiller

            Considering that Sony just purchased onlive its prett good speculation. Don’t mind hoppsy. I just taught him what streaming was 6 months ago, he actually thought it was impossible Ms is working on a stream solution as well but a huge road block on the US is the ISPs. Bandwidth caps are a huge problem here. Unfortunately with the lack of competition in that area it’ll be hard for that tech to succeed

          • bardock5151

            In Australia we have some pretty good deals going. Unlimited caps and even some providers have free Xbox Live usage that won’t count towards the cap if you have one.

            But speeds are still all over the place even with the government rolling out a new fiber network. Most places in the city I live in get 5-6 down and 0.8 up.

            So we could make use of the service with no cap restrictions, but quality would be severely diminished.

            Were you referring to Microsoft’s DeLorean research? http://www.engadget.com/2014/08/23/microsoft-delorean/

          • Steven Hiller

            Yeah I found that exciting. Playing onlive the lag was ok but it was something you got used to. Delorean would solve that issue.

            The reason I quit onlive was the data usage. But I can definitely imagine a world where the power of the console was irreverent and games weren’t held hostage until the nextupgrade cycle.

            Do I have to find that thread and show the world how wrong you were about everything bitch boy?

          • bardock5151

            You are so dense its becoming hilarious.

            “Fun fact ps now isn’t in direct competition with the sale of video games.”
            Lol, ITunes isn’t in competition with music sales is it? No ofcourse not, because its a platform to sell music lol. But it still pretty much killed off CD’s and the need for there dedicated piece of hardware.

            PS now is a service not tethered to a single dedicated piece of hardware, but will offer the same content available on the now redundant dedicated hardware. Hence it puts the now unneeded piece of hardware in the bin.

            You’re arguments are getting quite stupid lol.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            ha ha ha ha man you’re dumb! you’re just not getting this are you?

            PS NOW is a RENTAL service! RENTAL much the same as netflix and amazon prime.

            They may offer a steam like “buy the game” but it’s RENTAL

            Itunes isn’t rental, it’s a place to buy music! it’s in direct competition with CDs/physical media.

            Streaming will not compare to hardware based gaming for many many years. your arguments are ridiculous! we might be all digital next gen but hardware will remain, although In a customisable form.

          • bardock5151

            PS4 and PS now can exist together.

            I’m talking about your PS5 being an Apple TV device.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            I’ve already told you what I think ps5 will be, similar to a steam box and all digital……still noty in competition with ps now lol

          • bardock5151

            It will be about as powerful as a Ouya. Great for streaming content.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            LOL will it? you know this how?

          • bardock5151

            Stream box lol. Seriously though, just wait for E3. It will be heavily focused around PS now.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            I bet you it isn’t,

            Steam box isn’t for streaming??? dude I really think you don’t understand what PS now is vs what Steam is??

          • bardock5151

            And you’ve missed it entirely. I wont even bother explaining it to you.

            Steam is a very successful DRM platform that gained traction with publishers due to the ease and effectiveness of its antipiracy systems. Over it’s lifetime it became a viable platform for game sales too. Simply put, now days it’s a sales platform.

            PS now is an entirely cloud based service. It’s DRM is far more effective than any other platform as no one using the service obtains the content in its entirety and therefore can’t be copied. At all times Sony controls your access, there is no offline mode. Simply put it’s a restrictive rental service.

            PS5 has a high likelihood of being a stReam box.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Well my friend opinions vary but I think the money made from hardware and software sales and more importantly those who still want to own there games (most people) will mean that hardware will exist and streaming will remain a rental option.

            Now all digital future using a steam like system is a possibility.

            A online only future? yeah that worked out well for MS i’m sure Sony are jumping at doing it lol

          • bardock5151

            It’s all about conditioning your user base. Sony joined everyone in baying for blood when Microsoft stated the online policy. Got tons of people on their side.

            Now Sony has an up until now never before seen level of popularity. Now everybody is subscribing to PS+ getting right behind share play etc. and getting right behind these always online games.

            After such a huge backlash against always online, why are always online games seeing such a huge following?

            Sony are jumping at an always online future. They’ve dumped alot of money into it lately.

            I’m over talking about it, so after E3, if they don’t go talking up PS now I’ll concede. But I’m quite certain PS now will be a large focus for them.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            What?

            Are you one of the retards that thinks that always online games were an issue?

            An always online console, guess what? you need games to be always online if there principle reason is to play with other players lol

            No one had a problem with always online games, they had a problem with DRM on physical discs…..

          • bardock5151

            I just skimmed through your comments on this page…. You are worse than gabe…. Troll.

            If you’re talking about my comments to that PC dumb ass I’m fighting fire with fire. you’ll find most of my actual comments are sensible.

          • bardock5151

            No one cares what you say.

            exactly ;)

          • bardock5151

            Yeah, that’s not very funny. It’s just trolling.

            trolling a troll

          • Ben

            Damn, you’re dumb. He’s talking about next gen. PS is their best branch. If there are more software sales on there, as Sony makes most of their money there, why would they bother with expensive hardware?
            I thought you were the smart one.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Why would there be software sakes on a rental service you fucking idiot? Lol

            Seriously before you interject with a comment make sure you know what you’re talking about.

          • Ben

            Wah. Cry some more and swear as well.
            If this service takes off, why waste money on making a PS when this is on multiple systems?
            Bardock is right. He proved you wrong everywhere.
            You also seem to be pretty angry lately. Wonder why. :^)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Because PS now is a game streaming service lol

            So are you saying no hardware will exist next gen? It’ll never happen.

            Why would you simply stream games when you can.make money selling software??

            Why would you not sell hardware when you can.make millions doing so?

            Fucking retards man.lol

          • Ben

            “Because PS now is a game streaming service lol”

            Yeah, and if it takes off making so much money, PS consoles will be irrelevant. Just take the games and put them on there. More platforms=more customers.

            “So are you saying no hardware will exist next gen? It’ll never happen.”

            For PS. Who brought up Nintendo or Xbox? Stick with the program.

            “Why would you simply stream games when you can.make money selling software??”

            This is a service that charges you. If more people are using this than PS consoles, why waste money on an expensive console that sells at a loss, and there is a much larger userbase? Not to mention that they can make changes to this anytime?

            “Why would you not sell hardware when you can.make millions doing so?”

            As we said before, consoles usually sell at a loss in the beginning. If this service takes off this gen, why bother with a PS5 next gen? They’ll already be making so much money. Why waste more on a product that’ll be fading faster than Apple’s console in the 90’s if this works?

            “Fucking retards man.lol”

            Yeah. This is coming from the guy that denies everything and can’t use proper grammar. :^)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Why only have a streaming service when you can have a streaming service, successful console and software sales and rentals? Makes no sense.

            So you think ms and Nintendo will still have consoles but not PS? Lol logic….

            Every single ps4 has made profit.

            They have PS plus as well

            PS plus is separate to PS now.

            Nothing you just said makes one bit of sense you fucking pathetic fanboy

          • Ben

            “Why only have a streaming service when you can have a streaming service, successful console and software sales and rentals? Makes no sense.”

            We’re talking about the NEXT gen! The PS5! Sure PS4 is good now, but what about PS5? We saw what happened when Sony came from the top with the PS2 then dropped right to the bottom with the PS3 at launch. We don’t KNOW if PS5 will be successful. A HUGE chunk of their popularity this gen happened with Xbox’s reveal. I’m sure as hell MS will never do that again. Point is, this is if PS Now WILL take off, seeing it as on multiple platforms. And if it becomes more popular than PS5, then why waste money on it?

            “So you think ms and Nintendo will still have consoles but not PS? Lol logic…”

            Seeing as how MS wants to win this gen along with doing much more, combined with the fact that PS execs don’t know where to go from here as Bardock explained above, yeah. I’m pretty sure Nintendo will still live on, seeing as how they’ve announced NX.

            “Every single ps4 has made profit.”

            Yeah, the freaking PS4. Not the PS5. And keyword in my previous comment, USUALLY. This is the first gen where consoles are actually making profit since launch. And the only reason for that is because these systems were rushed out the door with technology weaker than PCs. Many people are moving to PCs because of this. So what makes you think the PS5 will make profit?

            “They have PS plus as well”

            Yeah. THIS GEN. If PS Now does take off, it’ll be on multiple platforms. Making PS5 not really necessary if you already own a system that has PS Now, which you likely do. This will mean less PS+ subscribers and less money going toward PS5. If this takes off, why keep supporting a dying service?

            “PS plus is separate to PS now.”

            And if PS Now takes off, many people will be using non-PS systems. Making the PS5 more irrelevant and just making PS Now overshadow PS+.

            “Nothing you just said makes one bit of sense you fucking pathetic fanboy”

            Nice to know you have no idea what I’m talking about and have nothing to throw back at me, other than insults that cement my arguments and makes you look like a child throwing a fit because he lost. I’m a fanboy of what, exactly? Putting together logical scenarios for the future based on what’s happening now?

            Yeah, you are angry. Wonder why. :^)

          • ?????

            Nicely put, Ben. Hoppsy will go back to cover his ears and screaming like a child.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            No one cares ;)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Everything you just said is blown away by your own logic.

            You say that we are talking about next gen…..you are speculating on everything based on a rental service that isn’t even fully off the ground and certrainly won’t be worldwide in 5 or 6 years due to internet infastructure.

            Why would sony alienate a huge proportion of their fans with streaming only?

            Why would they lose momentum after the massive success of the ps4?

            Why would they only have a streaming service when them and developers can make money selling there software?

            Nothing at all you say makes any sense for a business to do.

          • Ben

            “You say that we are talking about next gen…..you are speculating on everything based on a rental service that isn’t even fully off the ground and certrainly won’t be worldwide in 5 or 6 years due to internet infastructure.”

            Yet, we know that Sony is trying to push PS Now forward. If what they are trying to do works, it can definitely happen.

            “Why would sony alienate a huge proportion of their fans with streaming only?”

            If their going to spread this service to multiple devices, I’m sure they would GAIN fans. What if a huge portion of the PS fanbase stops buying software, stops subscribing to PS+, etc. as PS Now may get popular this gen?

            “Why would they lose momentum after the massive success of the ps4?”

            They lost momentum with the massive success of the PS2. If they screw up the launch like with the PS3, and if PS Now takes off, then PS5 would be DOA.

            “Why would they only have a streaming service when them and developers can make money selling there software?”

            You do know that a digital service like this can change at any time? They can add or take away anything. They can add an option for selling software. In fact, they can change the rental service into its own thing if popularity takes off.

            “Nothing at all you say makes any sense for a business to do.”

            I’m sorry. But seeing as how this company has made no profit for years, wouldn’t they go with something very popular to rake in all the cash?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Ha ha you’re contradicting yourself.

            You were saying that ps5 won’t be made now you’re saying that if they screw up the ps5 launch psnow will be pushed…you make no sense lol

            Of course Sony are pushing PS now?? Why the fuck wouldn’t they its a new service lol!

            If they change the service into selling digital then that’s not PS now and its not a rental service ha ha ha

            In fact its exactly what I think next gen will be. Upgradeable hardware and os with steam like stores that are ms/Sony branded….

            You sir have just been absoloutly schooled…

            I’m dropping the mic…walking away

          • Ben

            Ha ha ha. You are too blind to see the facts. Sony could change this rental service into something very different any time if the popularity grows. With more popularity growing on PS, PS Now will catch the eyes of more people.

            Yeah. Walk away to your fantasy land.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            What the fuck are you talking about lol.

            If they change it then its no longer rental streaming making your entire argument invalid ha ha ha you were trying to say that Sony won’t bring out hardware next gen…..

            They don’t need to change the rental service into something else, it already exists! The PlayStation store

            Lol man I’m laughing my ass off here ha ha ha ha

            Seriously I’ve never spoke to someone so clueless about their own point lol

        some people like sony some people like Microsoft some like Nintendo. And others like pc. Me myself i like them all. I can play pokemon on fucking steam or sony or Microsoft so i got Nintendo console’s for those. If PlayStation xbox and Nintendo didnt have exclusives whats the point of buying the damn things. Like all the butt hurt pc players that wanna play bloodborne and bicth about heres a idea. Suck up your fucking pride and buy a ps4.

        You’re dense. He’s saying that now PS Now is on non-PS systems, why would you go out and buy these when you have them on your system already? Once more games like the ones listed above in the article come on PS Now, people won’t need to buy a PS to play them. Hence, no longer exclusive.

        • Country Boy Lucifer

          Yeah because no one buys blue rays and blue ray players because of Netflix? Lol

  • Consolean

    Consoles will never ever go away. What I like about consoles is the whole plug & play notion. Don’t have to upgrade your console to play the games. Where as PC you sometimes have to spend almost the same price or maybe more for a price of say a console to play your fav game. Nothing against PC I have one myself enjoy from time to time to play PC games. See listen hear The Herald of Gabe have you ever played on a console before. Another point updates are so much quicker and not as huge in GB on the console than on PC. Yes some of us are lords when it comes to PC connection speeds some of us just lucky to have the cash to pay for extremely fast lines. So Herald of Gabe nothing better to do than verbally bash a company because he goes on heresay of other people. Who Cares lmao (laughing my ass off) Move with the times man. Enjoy your PC while us Consoleans enjoy our consoles and hassle free gaming.
