honest question , why is everyone so bitchy about streaming PS3 games?

I had Now for a couple of months and played some PS3 games and didnt notice nothing wrong...

maybe i have a good internet connection?!?
Yeah alot of it comes down to peoples own internet and if sony have a server close to you. My current isp i get amazing connection rarely any lagging but my last isp it was unusable. Also another issue there will always be a hit to visual quality and responsiveness no matter how good the connection is, considering some ps3 games look rough streaming can make it worse.

580 vs "over 800"

that's a pretty big discrepancy. Is eurogamer counting all games in different regions separately ?
Eurogamer's list of PS4 and PS5 games available today comes to 429.

Additionally, Sony had promised "up to 340" retro games, from the PS1, PS2 and PSP eras, plus the PS3 via cloud streaming. Eurogamer's list of retro games available today totals 404.

It's worth noting this number is considerably lower in regions where PS3 game streaming is not available. Eurogamer's list of PS3 games available totals 365 - the bulk of Sony's current Classic Catalogue offering.

I swear this place is filled with people in grade school.
  • "Gamepass suckssssss, only trash games on there."
  • "Subs kill game quality. Subs will singlehandedly ruin the entire game industry in a race to the bottom."
  • "PS+ is great and Sony has always been into subs years before gamepass. No one has ever criticized subs before!"
Just play some games that you enjoy. In case you guys haven't figured it out by now, people will ALWAYS find a way to troll if they want to. It doesn't matter if they say blue is really green, and then next day admit that it's blue. If you start debating colors with people like that you've pretty much already lost.

Find something fun to play.

I wish this thread was the other way around, just because the post would be even funnier. Sony not doing what they said.....hilarious.

The narrative was always, day 1 games on subs will kill the quality. No1 said anything else. People aren’t changing there mind over.

So you guys are all gonna cancel your subs as soon as Sony starts putting 1st party day one right?

its ok if sony does it! if it's MS then fuck that shit! /s

So, Sony fans love game subs now? Renting games is good?
Effort 2/10
Originality 0/10
Salt 10/10



Why is this news worthy?

Gamepass promises 100+ games and gives you 400+. They didn't wrote an article then.

They also announced today they'll be offering NTSC options for classic games for pretty much the entire world (Europe, Asia, New Zealand, Middle East, India, South Africa, Australia). So all you people in Europe complaining about PAL won't be stuck with those versions for long.

Service just keeps getting better and better. Shouldn't be too much longer before I take the plunge and sign up.

PS Now always had a much bigger collection than GamePass, tbf. It was inevitable that PS+ Extra & Premium would have a bigger collection even with some of the games being removed.

I mean there are simply way more PS1/2/3/4/PSP games collectively than OG Xbox/360/XBO games.

But… day one will kill Game quality and ps+ existed way before gamepass.
What’s your point?

Stray will destroy gaming then. And everyone is hoping for Evil West on PS+ so that gaming will lower in quality.

Spoiler alert: That goal post will move too. It's not even making a point on one fanbase over the other. Everyone will do this forever. It's just any excuse to argue.

That's why i don't ge the whole "oh look ps fans now love subs", subscription service itself wasn't really the thing people where talking about when they had concerns of subscription services, psnow has been around for ages and ps fans have been asking for it to improve for years.

Stray is developed by BlueTwelve Studio, a small team from the south of France mostly made up of cats and a handful of humans.

Stray and Evil West are not big-budget AAA games, though. Those are the sort of AA games that a subscription service can realistically support in terms of Day 1 content.

It's a pretty big difference tbh. When people talk about quality of the games dropping, it's always been in relation to AAA games. Sony have made that clear, as have Take-Two.

Yup absolutely.

They promised games for PS5, then delivered same games for PS4 as well.

What point are you trying to make again? Sony has released games exclusive to PS5 as well as games that are cross-gen. And?

The goal posts will move to whatever is convenient. If that's not obvious to everyone by now then I don't know what else to say. People should stop taking it seriously. It's not a serious debate.

Sony has had game subs since the PS3 days. That is what PS+ was created to be.

Everyone keeps bringing up PSNow was before Game Pass, that's irrelevant. Nobody gave a shit about PSNow. It was extremely unsuccessful. Even though it was first it had only 10% the number of subscribers of Game Pass.

For years now we've had Game Pass threads downplayed, trolled and derailed. We've had to hear how Sony fans have no interest and would never subscribe to a sub like Game Pass and how they would rather own their games than rent them. Now that Sony has revamped it's subs to be somewhat more like Game Pass, all of a sudden subs and renting games is great.

P.S. I'm not referring to you in the above, I know you aren't a troll and haven't been downplaying Game Pass which is why I chose to respond to you rather than any of the trolls. I'm not going to further derail or engage in back and forth with any of the trolls. I'm just giving YOU my opinion and how I view it.

Hmm no the narrative was:
Because its not a good thing for video games. If gamepass succeeds, it Will be all about MS controlling and choosing what games get made and what studios get what budget.

Which is exactly what will happen if MS controls loads of IP‘s and most the money coming in for those games is gamepass...
It’s hard to imagine now but people were actually seeing cheap access to a catalog as « « not a good thing » because somehow it would take over traditional distribution (which never happened).

But I’m glad we are over it now (and I mean it).

But the all the points stand:
Ps+ and game rentals exist for years now.
🤷🏻‍♂️

Yes with day 1 games. Thats what gamepass is. Where have I said a normal sub service is bad?

Saying your the leading subscription service and not showing any profits, selling less on 1st party party games and paying ??? For day 3rd party exclusives, is dangerous if everyone thinks thats the future. Because we don’t know how sustainable it is. MS wants to just say they are leading the sub market with subscribers. And there willing to pay money for it

Gamepass = day 1 first party and some 3rd party games day 1 games. Its not a good thing for video games. But that doesnt mean all sub services are bad.
Thinking Netflix for games is sustainble is bad

Seem like you got your feelings hurt. I remember when the mods made a mega thread about Gamepass and people were more busy attacking Sony or getting banned for "having inferiority complex" and nobody was talking about Gamepass... it has always been used as ammo...

My views on subs still remain the same, at least we are not having threads about treads about how "PS+ is free", "game changer" or how PS+ is the future and everyone else who thinks otherwise is backwards.
