PS Plus free games – FAQS
When did PlayStation Plus replace PS Now?
- In early 2022 PlayStation announced that it was merging PS Now into its new three-tiered system for PlayStation Plus, something that will make it more integrated into the PlayStation universe.
- This happened in June 2022 when the new memberships launched, and had one sad consequence – you will have to pay more to get your streamed games, since only the Extra and Premium tiers of the new service will include the feature.
How does it work?
- PS Now is mainly a cloud-based service much like Netflix or Spotify, but for gaming. It hosts a wide collection of PS2, PS3 and PS4 titles (more than 700 games are available). You can access them at your leisure, all through a PS Now app on your PlayStation 4 or PS5.
