PlayStation Now has just received one of the best updates of the last period, with the introduction of Marvel’s Avengers and Borderlands 3. The service, which allows users to play in streaming, however, has some flaws that make it uncomfortable and disorganized.
Both games just mentioned have free updates on both PS4 and PS5, but subscribers can only play the PS4 version. Several users have been able to stream the version for the previous Sony gaming platform, and download the titles to their hard drive, but in order to upgrade to the PS5 version, you have to actually pay for the game.
PlayStation Now, at the moment, looks like a service for PS4: there are no games included for PS5. This undoubtedly represents a problem for all those subscribers who, with Marvel’s Avengers and Borderlands 3, had thought they had access to next-generation content.
Both titles offer native PS5 versions, but are not available on the streaming service. The updates for PlayStation Now remain valid, although the lack of an upgrade for the next-generation console is a sign that the company is not taking the service seriously enough.
Hopefully, by the end of the year, similar misunderstandings will cease to exist and the PlayStation Now content organization will be updated and revamped. Recall that the subscription service currently allows access to a catalog of over 700 games for PS4, PS3, and PS2, which can be played on-demand on PS5, PS4, and PC.
Additionally, over 300 PS4 games can be downloaded directly to your gaming platform. PlayStation Now includes full access to all available online multiplayer modes, whether you decide to play in streaming or if you download the title in question.
