Sony doesn’t have any plans of bringing backwards compatibility to the PlayStation 4, meaning that unlike Xbox One, PS4 owners will not be able to just pop in a PS3 disc to play a game that originally came out for its predecessor. The company does offer another way of playing PS3 games on PS4 but it’s a bit costly, the PlayStation Now streaming service offers a variety of titles which can be streamed on the PS4 but the cost might deter some gamers. Nevertheless Sony continues to expand the service’s library as today it adds more than 100 new games to PlayStation Now.
This is the biggest release of new content ever for PlayStation Now which now has a library that offers subscribers more than 250 titles that they can stream on-demand.
21 of these latest additions come from top franchises such as Resident Evil, Mega Man, Street Fighter, Dead Rising, Lost Planet and many others.
It’s obviously not possible to cover all of the 105 new titles here, the variety ranges across multiple genres so there will definitely something for everyone. Classic games like Double Dragon Neon and Dragon’s Lair have also been added alongside the likes of Joe Danger 2: The Movie, DeathSpank: The Baconing and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD.
The entire list of 105 new games added to PlayStation Now is available on Sony’s blog, the company provides a 7 day free trial to new subscribers after which they have to pick a plan in order to continue streaming games on their PlayStation console.
