PlayStation Now Now Offers Downloadable Games, But There’s a Catch

PlayStation Now is Sony's video game streaming service that lets you play a selection of PS4, PS3, and PS2 games on your PS4 or PC (including Macs).

Making the deal even sweeter is that you can now download to your PS4 almost all of the PS4 games on the service, as well as some of the PS2 games. This applies to users who have made a decision to only play with downloaded titles, so it's important to ensure that the console you're playing on isn't relegated to offline status.

Downloaded PS Now games will support all user-purchased DLCs, microtransactions, and add-ons, as well as PS4 Pro enhancements for subscribers using a PS4 Pro system. But it doesn't include PS3 titles as they "are not compatible to run natively on PS4", Sony told GI.biz. Also, if you've already started a game via streaming and you'd like to pick it back up after downloading it, the process is a bit convoluted. However, if you do have both, you can transfer save data from the streaming to the downloaded versions of a game by utilizing PlayStation Plus' cloud save feature. If Aecesaje is to be believed, then this could be an indication of a bug occurring and unintentionally displaying the titles as free PS Plus titles incredibly early, but it's unclear if that's the case.

Air pollution linked to higher risk of dementia
During that time, almost 2,200 patients - 1.7 per cent of the total - were diagnosed with dementia . He also noted that dementia occurs in people living all over - in urban, suburban and rural areas.

The download feature is not quite happening "now" in a blanket sense, but will be gradually rolled out to subscribers over the course of the next few days.

The move potentially makes PlayStation Now a much more attractive subscription offer for PlayStation 4 users since the ability to play numerous games available through its library will no longer rely on access to a fast internet connection.
