PlayStation Now Beta Includes Several Top-Tier Games

PlayStation Now is currently in a beta test phase, and one of the participants just leaked a list of the games that available via the new streaming service.

As seen at Gamepur, the brief list contains a trio of top-tier first-party titles as well as a half-dozen third-party games. Check 'em out:

  • Killzone 3
  • Puppeteer
  • Shadow of the Colossus
  • Papo & Yo
  • Darksiders II
  • MX vs. ATV: Alive
  • Disgaea 4
  • Ninja Gaiden 3
  • Shatter

Obviously, these aren't the only games that will be available via Now; this is, after all, just a test session. It's not a bad selection, either; I see several really awesome titles, including Puppeteer, Darksiders II, Shadow of the Colossus and Killzone 3.

If you'd forgotten, PlayStation Now is Sony's recently unveiled Netflix-style subscription service that should roll out in the US this summer. Sources say this streaming tech is only designed to support PS3 software, while we'll get PS1/PS2 titles through local emulation.

Is Puppeteer worth it? Perhaps I'll invest down the road.

It's okay. The load times are terrible. Almost Mod Nation Racers bad. It's a cute platformer though. I have a lot of fun playing with my daughter. The visuals are fantastic. The whole puppetshow presentation is really cool. I think I got it for $20. It's worth that.

Puppeteer was just one of the games on sale for the last couple of weeks for around $7 or $9 in Sony's ringing in the New year "14 for 14 sale" (at least on the US PSN site)

I picked it up myself but haven't had the chance to play it yet.

I know I'm beating an old drum, here, but I really wish that Sony and Ueda would just finish up work on The Last Guardian already. I love SotC, but I've played it three times; I want something new from that developer.

Is PS1 and PS2 emulation actually confirmed for PS4?

These PSNow games have a good range of game types to test the service. Seems like a fighter is missing and just a couple of other genres. Good start.

I'd love to hear how Killzone 3 works as a streamed game.

Interested in this. Down the track when you buy a Sony TV you can play games as well. Might not be something for the hard core gamers but for the casuals it could be all they need.

Don't think my rubbish Australian Internet would cope with all the streaming but in a decade or so it might be an option.
