PlayStation Now gets 105 new games, with 21 from Capcom alone

Sony has announced the addition of 105 new titles for download on its cloud-based streaming service, PlayStation Now, including 21 new titles from Resident Evil creator Capcom alone.


The new games are currently available in the U.S., and bring the total number of titles available on PS Now to over 250. Today’s additions include a number of popular franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man, Dead Rising, and Bionic Commando. Well, we did say that Capcom has 21 titles up for grabs. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a slew of action-adventure, beat-’em-up, shooters, puzzlers, and more to look forward to.

Listing the whole bunch will probably cause our servers to implode, so we recommend checking out the PlayStation Blog for all the details you need to know.

PlayStation Now was originally unveiled to the gaming public at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014, with a closed beta running for North American gamers in late January. Initially the beta was restricted to PS3, although the PS4 was later included beginning May 19. The service later entered an open beta in the U.S. in July 2014, and saw a full release in January 2015. Europe received beta access a few months later, which invites being distributed to PS4 owners in April of this year. 

Sony’s cloud-based streaming service currently offers PS3 titles, although there are plans to incorporate PS4 titles at a later date. In addition, it has also been reported that PSOne, PS2 and PSP games are being considered at some point down the line. In terms of subscriptions, gamers can select a one-month plan for $19.99 or subscribe for three months for $44.99. Alternatively, consumers can opt to rent games on a 4-hour, 7-day, 30-day or 90-day basis. PS Now launched in the U.K. early last month.
