Can't stream PS4 and PS2 games? PlayStation Now adds downloads

PlayStation

Starting today, PlayStation Now users will be able to stream as well as download PlayStation Now games to their PlayStation 4 in order to play both locally and offline, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced. Nearly all PS4 games in the service, including Bloodborne, God of War 3 Remastered, NBA 2K16, and Until Dawn, will be available for download, in addition to the PS Now lineup of classic PS2 games remastered for PS4. This includes PS2 games remastered for PS4.

The move potentially makes PlayStation Now a much more attractive subscription offer for PlayStation 4 users since the ability to play numerous games available through its library will no longer rely on access to a fast internet connection. Previously, PS Now was only a streaming service, which meant you needed a fairly robust internet connection to transmit data back and forth to play games. This is the case even if only playing downloaded games. That's a bit of a bummer, as PS Now usually doesn't require a PS Plus subscription.

These downloaded games will support any microtransactions and add-ons subscribers have purchased, and a PlayStation Plus membership is not required for game that utilize online multiplayer with PS Now.
