PS Now's PS3 Games Can't Be Downloaded, 'Not Compatible' with PS4

TODO alt text Rumor: Free PS Plus Games for October Include Nioh and Diablo 3
Katie Ramirez | 21 September, 2018, 02:56

This is the case even if only playing downloaded games.

But, believe it or not, we're already over halfway through the month, and October - with all its big releases - looms large in the background.

The just-announced changes are rolling out to PlayStation 4 users today, however mentions of the PC version of PlayStation Now are notably absent from PlayStation's blog post on downloadable games, so it's likely streaming remains the only option for PC-faring PlayStation Now subscribers. It's a unusual glitch, but one that has happened to PS4 users in the past, so there's certainly a precedent to back the legitimacy of this rumour up.

During the month of September, PlayStation Plus subscribers were given what has arguably been the best offer of free games for the year so far, with the subscription service having provided players with both Destiny 2 and God of War 3 at no additional cost.

When asked about PS3 games joining PS4 and PS2 software in the new download feature, a Sony spokesperson said: "PS3 games are not available for downloads because they are not compatible to run natively on PS4". That's a bit of a bummer, as PS Now usually doesn't require a PS Plus subscription.

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.

Sony noted that while downloaded games are playable offline, you will need to connect your PlayStation 4 to the Internet every few days to verify your PlayStation Now subscription.

As seen in the image below, the PlayStation Plus subreddit user known as "Aecesaje" claims that both Nioh and Diablo 3: Eternal Collection showed up in the PlayStation Store, but if the games are selected, they don't show up.
