Sony just announced that PlayStation 4 games are coming soon to the PlayStation Now cloud gaming service. It means that gamers will be able to pay a subscription fee and stream PS4 games to their PlayStation 4 or PC.
There are currently 450 games in the PS Now subscription, but Sony has restricted the service to PlayStation 3 games so far. A subscription costs $15 to $20 and PlayStation 4 games are coming “this year.”
When you subscribe, you don’t install games on your console. Instead, Sony has data centers where they can launch games on their own servers. A video feed is then sent directly to your device, but nothing is really happening locally.
PlayStation 4 games mean that Sony will probably have to upgrade data centers with more powerful machines. The company hasn’t listed the first PlayStation 4 games coming to the platform, but you can expect first-party titles, such as Uncharted, Infamous, God of War and Little Big Planet games.
