Soon, PlayStation Now will be available in India thanks to Sony Interactive Entertainment, a global provider of video games and digital entertainment. The business had previously chosen to launch the service in India in 2020. However, the COVID-19 outbreak prevented its implementation.
What Is PlayStation Now?
Sony Interactive Entertainment created the game streaming service known as PlayStation Now. It was first made available in limited quantities in North America in 2014 before progressively spreading to other parts of the world. More than 800 games are available on the platform, and new games are introduced each month.
There is a seven-day free trial period for PlayStation Now, after which you can sign up for one of the three available subscription plans. No matter whatever plan you select, you have access to both single-player and multiplayer modes without having to pay extra for the online multiplayer component.
What is the benefit of PlayStation Now?
Games from the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 can be streamed to the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. As a result, owners of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 systems can download PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 games without the requirement for an internet connection.
You may instantly access the PS Now catalogue, which offers you a number of titles to stream or download, with PlayStation Now. The Last of Us, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Bloodborne, Mafia 3, Darksiders Genesis, and Call of Duty Black Ops III are just a few of the well-known games.
What is the difference between the PlayStation Now and the Xbox Game Pass?
Both PlayStation Now and Xbox Game Pass are subscription-based services that provide you with a huge selection of games, so they are pretty similar. Although Xbox Game Pass came out after PlayStation Now, the latter has managed to become very popular among gamers because to its robust service and reach.
The Xbox Game Pass’s high-quality library and regular addition of exclusive games are the reasons for its popularity. PlayStation is working to supplement the streaming component with downloads, cost-cutting measures, and the addition of strong game titles.
Why the PlayStation Now will take time to overtake the Xbox Game Pass popularity in India?
Electronic Arts and Xbox have agreed to make EA Play available to PC users with Xbox Game Pass subscriptions. The corporation wants to increase gamers’ access to Electronic Arts’ video game subscription service EA Play. Users who have an Xbox Game Pass subscription will have free access to a number of video games. Battlefield 5, Need for Speed Heat, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order are all featured in the game collection.
A monthly bonus programme is also included with the EA Play subscription. Rewards for the players include the N7 Weapon Charm for Apex Legends and the Gold Team Fantasy MUT packs for Madden 21’s EA Play Celebration. Discounts on digital purchases are available to users of the EA Desktop application. Additionally, they will have access to member-only content and the premium in-game challenges and rewards.
