Even if Microsoft is attracting all the attention with its Xbox Game Pass offering, Sony has been offering its PS Now platform for a number of years. The process is not identical to the Microsoft service as PS Now is based on a streaming principle. However, the subscriber has access to several hundred games from previous generations up to the PS4. The service is available on PS4 and PS5, but also on PC.

PS Now games are coming soon in Full HD 1080p!
A streaming service that we were able to test on a more classic ADSL connection, but which had shown very good results. To avoid problems of any kind, Sony had obviously taken care to reduce the display of PS Now games to a resolution of 720p, which is a bit stingy at the age of 4K (and even 8K).
PlayStation Now will be rolling out support for streaming 1080p-ready games starting this week.

Plus, the Japanese giant has formalized the fact that PS Now games can now be streamed in Full HD 1080p. The update will be rolling out in waves and will be rolled out in all countries where PS Now is available over the next few weeks. In that regard, PS Now recently hosted a number of new games, including Marvel’s Avengers.
Of course, if the PS Now service, like many cloud gaming or video streaming services, is optimal for fiber optic users, a good ADSL connection may be sufficient. In this regard, it is possible to download PS4 games (on PS4 and PS5) for better stability.
As a reminder, you can try PlayStation Now for free for 7 days. When you want to register, you have various options with a monthly subscription of 9.99 euros, a quarterly subscription of 24.99 euros or an annual subscription of 59.99 euros.
