Sony has Declared its Sport streaming service PlayStation Currently (PS Currently ) will Eventually Encourage PS2 and PS4 game downloads on PS4.
Even though PS3 games are part of PlayStation Today, it does not look like Sony has discovered a means to permit them to be performed as a download only yet. Odd considering that the first flow of PlayStation Currently supporting match downloads revealed off Alpha Protocol, a PS3 game. This upgrade will be rolled out to PlayStation Currently subscribers”within the next few times” Sony claims.
“Downloaded PS Now games can encourage all user-purchased DLCs, micro-transactions, and add-ons, in addition to PS4 Pro improvements for readers utilizing a PS4 Guru program,” reads an article in Brian Dunn, Senior Marketing Manager for PlayStation Today about the PlayStation blog. “And keep in mind, you don’t require a PlayStation Plus membership for internet multiplayer on PS Today — that remains the exact same for both streaming and downloaded games”
Similar to Netflix, Spotify, along with other streaming solutions, you will have to join your PS4 system into the net every couple of days to confirm your PS Currently subscription, even when you’re simply playing with downloaded games Sony supports.
