Sony has come up with a welcome announcement to its PlayStation Now game streaming service as it’s going to add PS4 games to the catalogue while retaining the monthly subscription cost at $19.99.

Subscribers can already stream 483 PS3 games on their PC and PS4 consoles and now the company will be adding an array of games for PS4 to the catalogue too.

The company hasn’t announced which games will be added as of yet, but it’s quite certain that most of them will be older titles.

“All of the games in the service, including PS4 games, will be included with a single PS Now subscription. In the next few weeks, we’ll kick off a private test with PS4 games on PS Now. If you’re an active PS Now subscriber, keep an eye on your email in case you get an invitation,” Brian Dunn, Senior Marketing Manager, PlayStation Now stated.

Adding PS4 games to the PlayStation Now streaming service seems like a wise decision following last month’s announcement that the company will be pulling the plug on PlayStation Now support on all other devices — PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, PlayStation 3 and Sony Bravia TVs
— except Windows PC and PS4.

PlayStation Now runs on cloud streaming service, allowing the subscribers to play the game directly without needing to download it locally. The game progress is also saved on the cloud server, enabling users to continue playing where they left of even on some other PS4 or PC and vice-versa.

Last month, Microsoft also announced its Xbox Game Pass service for Xbox One and Xbox One S which will allow users to access more than 100 games and also download them to their Xbox hard drives, which should resolve any lag issues arising out of playing via the cloud.

In case you haven’t tried the service yet, Sony is currently offering the PlayStation Now service on a free trial for a week.
