PlayStation Now adds 22 new games including 'Uncharted' series


PlayStation’s subscription-based cloud gaming service, PlayStation Now, just added 22 new PS3 games to its roster of games available for its members. According to a report in Tech Times, the service recently got a boost with the addition of these new games, which include two of the three games in the popular “Uncharted” trilogy.

“Uncharted 2: Among Thieves” and “Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception” were recently included, giving PS players a chance to play the popular adventure game series. Another game in the trilogy, “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” was already part of the PSN line up of games, so the addition of the two games completes the trilogy.

Other games that were added include “Ratchet & Clank All 4 One,” HD versions of two “God of War” games, namely “Ghosts of Sparta” and “Chains of Olympus,” “Ricochet HD” and “Journey” among others. The report listed all the 22 games that were added.

These games are now part of the roster of over 400 games that are currently available on the streaming service. PlayStation Now was released in 2014 as a service that would allow gamers using newer PS4 consoles to play games that were originally released for the PS3 only. The report, however, notes that the service has not been that popular with PlayStation gamers because of the service’s steep price.

Right now, a monthly subscription will set players back $19.99 each month or $44.99 for three months. A free one-week trial is available for those who want to try it out. In order to access the service, subscribers must have a high-speed Internet connection, an account with Sony Entertainment Network and a DualShock 3 or 4 wireless controller.

This service is, however, different from the PlayStation Plus subscription which has free games on offer every month, which only costs $9.99 a month or a cheaper $49.99 for a yearly subscription. The number of free games every month is usually six, two for each platform, namely PS3, PS4 and PS Vita.
