Another Tuesday, another new episode of Now Loading delivered straight to your viewfinders! This week we talk about some of the recent gaming news and controversy to hit, including what we want to see out of Sony’s “Netflix for games” service, the rising price of games here in Canada, and how excited we all are for Batman: Arkham Knight!

For me, the Playstation Now service doesn’t seem to find a spot in my wallet. If there’s something missing from my physical Playstation collection, it’s available on the PS3′s PSN store. The library of PS1 and PS2 classics is gigantic. In addition to those titles, I also have the hundreds of PS3 games released on PS+ from the past three years. If I want to bring some PS1 games on the go, they can be transferred to my Playstation Vita (most of the time). If you’re new to Playstation, haven’t been collecting those PS+ licences, and are unfamiliar with the incredible titles from the PS1 and PS2 eras, depending on the catalog, I would be able to recommend the service. It’s just too difficult to advise when Sony already all of those fantastic options on the PS3′s store.
Totally valid points! I have collected a vast array of PS games since they came out, like yourself.
For me, one major thing to note is the idea of having access to these games without having to store them all, physically or digitally especially. Also, if there are rental options that save having to spend a full 10 dollars or more for a quick nostalgia trip, or to briefly try some random title, it might be very enticing (even for guys like us). I think it will come down to the library of course and service particulars.
Love your comments, thanks for taking the time to connect with us!
If it were more like Netflix, that would definitely be interesting, especially to give titles a small run-through. However, I think it will be closer to a rental service, and you may be stuck with a game for a certain period of time. Only time will tell! Here’s hoping it turns out well.
