Only the ps4 games are downloadable, and they don't even have the good ps4 games up, like for example tlou2 isn't on psnow, neither is ghost of tsushima. I have to go through the list but i'm pretty sure most of the ps4 games there are pretty crap, or are 2d side scroller indies. Thats around 350 games altogether that are downloadable. I tried streaming resident evil 4 on psnow which was a ps3 game and it was so bad that I bought the version on my Xbox series X instead.

anyways, i highly reccomend you use the trial before commiting to ps now.
maybe your wifi is weak? I have used PSNOW to play lots of games on multiple devices (PC, MacBook, iPhone and PS4) without lag. PC was connected via LAN but the others were all via wifi and I didn't see a lag at all.

As for the games, there are some really good AAA titles- like Prey, RDR1, HZD, Hitman 2, some Yakuza games, Infamous, some Metro games, and so on. Control used to be there too, but it is gone now.

Unless PS+ is just on a separate schedule.
Destiny used to update at 2pm and now 12pm, but didnt know they used to update earlier

Yup, same here. I'm happy Shadow of Tomb Raider is included this month. Been on the fence the past several months if I should purchase it. Glad I waited.

Back in the D1 days the daily reset used to be 3 am Central during standard hours and 4 am during Daylight Savings time. When they released new content (like an expansion) it would always unlock on the daily reset of the release day, because they'd patch it into the game beforehand.

But any kind of updates/patches were deployed after the PSN Store update for that day, which would be mid-morning or early afternoon depending on time of year and where you lived in the country.

Because I also specifically remember that for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, when they were releasing the DLC as "episodes", you weren't able to find and download the newest one until the PSN Store updated on release day, which was always mid-morning.

So Tomb Raider is the regular edition and you have to buy the addon pack for the definitive (on sale now at 8$). I guess that’s good news for people that just bought the definitive at 20$ so they get something extra Grinning Face

Maneater was fun for the intro except until the second mission where you gotta fight off hunters. Deleted it right after, good thing it's only 10gb.

My internet is pretty fast, its 500mbps, but yeah wifi always sucks ass. I played xcloud on my s10 and it was pretty good, i mean not as good as playing off console but still reasonable. It was surprising that psnow was so crap on my tv considering how good xcloud was. I didn't know you could play pwnow on PC...thats pretty cool. I'll definitely give it another shot..my first experience with psnow was so bad that i didnt touch it since.

I played Greedfall on PC over the holidays and really enjoyed it. It has a unique setting and story that sets it apart from other games like it. It's not without flaws, but I think it's well worth playing.

So (in theory) if you did want to buy Maneater for PS4 right now...you couldn't? wtf is Sony doing lol

E: So it's ONLY purchasable if you access the PSN store through your PS4. Not a great direction this is headed

If you have a ps5 the devs announced a next gen version coming soon so I would wait for now.
