It's a pretty sweet deal and you can download the majority of PS4 games. Current big titles are Spider-Man and Control.

This let's you stream to PC as well, although it was capped at 720p last time I tried it. Very tempted to hop on at that price for Spiderman and a few others.

Yes, it is really sweet dream! The highest profile games cycle out after a set period (I think three months) whilst the majority have ongoing access. You can see the dates via the app on PS4 or here.

Heh, cheers (damn typo). I have had a good look, and it seems like the overlap with my Game Pass library is quite large. But if I did not have an Xbox I would be all over that deal. There are some good hidden gems in there.

Although I currently can't sign in, get a "connection to the server could not be established" error.

PSNow seems to have a lot more in the way of JRPGs, so could be worth it just for that for me really.

No free postage option at the moment, so another £1.99 for that. I was trying to wait on a Switch port but ended up ordering earlier today.

ooh! I've heard it runs terribly on a Pleb-PS4 though? That's all I have - still worth getting?


Also provisionally keen pending on this reply. Anyone know how good/needed the dlc is?


Playing it right now thanks to PS Now and though I am quite early on in the game, I am enjoying it. I see stutters already (like when I sometimes go from menu back to game) and slow loading textures, but overall the game seems to run... pretty well. Though the complaints I read were based on things getting very hectic when you get your powers.

Sanctuary Bundle @ Fanatical Games - £4.79

The ultimate lockdown bundle...

Now more than ever, it’s vital that we stay indoors and that’s why we’ve put together an exclusive bundle of great Steam games to keep you entertained... the Sanctuary Bundle is here.

Featuring eight games and two DLCs, let your creativity run wild in classic sims, wage war against monstrous foes in action-packed FPS and strategical combat, embark on a story rich journey in a post-apocalyptic world and much more!

Create and run your own amazing theme parks with two of the most beloved strategy sims and three jam-packed expansions in RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic; take on Hell's most ghastly creatures in retro DOOM-style combat with Blood: Fresh Supply; and enjoy top-down action as you hack and smash your way through enemies with Redeemer: Enhanced Edition.

Craft weapons and manage your survivors in a thrilling wartime adventure with This War of Mine & This War of Mine: Stories - Season Pass; and enter a gripping, brutal campaign as either the Space Wolves or the dreaded Orks in turn-based strategy Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach.

Test your skills at surviving a zombie apocalypse with a collection of atmospheric titles from Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead series. Follow Lee and Clementine’s journey from the beginning of the outbreak as they search for her parents while seeking shelter, making new friends and potential enemies, and making sacrifices along the way in The Walking Dead Season One; and experience five linked stories of survival in the wake of the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC, which affects how your story continues in the next series.

Learn more about the backstory of an iconic, blade-wielding character from Robert Kirkman's best-selling comic books and the TV show with The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries; and continue to test your morals and your instinct for survival as a slightly older Clementine in The Walking Dead: Season 2.


Telltales The Walking Dead Season 1 + 400 Days DLC, Season 2 and Michone.
Blood Fresh Supply.
Rollercoaster Tycoon Classic.
Warhammer 40,000 Sanctus Reach.
This War of Mine + This War of Mine Stories.

I grabbed that for Sanctus Reach and a couple of others, spare keys in the giveaway thread.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

I got my first powers which caused the framerate to tank but I STILL recommend the game. Yup, even on a base console, as the powers are great to mess about with; the combat is decent; the game world and atmosphere foreboding. Definitely worth checking out.

Glad I discovered this while still on the free trial.

Loads of PS4 games use the touchpad issue as a button for menus etc,even left or right zones of the button do different stuff. Must have been an issue for ages.

Yeah, I googled it to see there were any workarounds, and apparently it's been an issue for as long as they've been putting PS4 titles on there. Some games it's not as bad as others, but apparently Uncharted 4 has a section in the prologue that was impossible to pass without an actual PS4 controller.

Sony probably aren't that bothered about fixing it, they'll just want you to go out and buy a DS4.

Used to use that DS4Windows program to use a Playstation controller on PC and it would just make the PC think it was a 360 controller and lets you remap all the buttons to whatever you want. Dunno if that'll work the other way round in your case but would think there would be something similar out there.

The mobile game sequel, Blackout, is also free on iOS and Android.
