PlayStation Now Redesign: Bonus Games And Better Performance For PlayStation 4

PlayStation Now was launched for PlayStation 4 early this year, and Sony continues to improve the PlayStation Now experience with new games monthly and downloadable updates every so often. This week, PlayStation Now not only gets a minor update, but a major makeover, Sony announced.

“It’s a new month and a new look for PlayStation Now! We’ve completely redesigned the PlayStation Now subscription app on PS4 to create a richer, more visual experience that makes it even easier for you to browse the catalog of 125+ games available.”

An immensely huge improvement from the previous PlayStation Now version, the new PS Now for PlayStation 4 is able to sort games by category and theme, and the game pages have become more detailed, complete with photos and videos.

With the recent disasters with PlayStation 4‘s PlayStation Network, Sony really needed to deliver something better for its users, and this newly refurbished PlayStation Now app for PlayStation 4 is, indeed, a great way to pick itself up.

Every month, Sony adds five new games to PlayStation Now, but this week, in addition to the design and functionality overhaul of the PlayStation Now, Sony announced that it’s adding a sixth game to celebrate the new PlayStation Now look.

The six new titles to come to PlayStation now this month are: Infamous: Festival of Blood, an Infamous game that features the darker side of the Infamous universe; Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, great for single player, co-op, or multiplayer; Resistance 3, four years after the Resistance 2 timeline; Sound Shapes, a classic 2D platform game; Wheel of Fortune, patterned after famous TV game show that will earn PlayStation 3 trophies; and Super Mega Basketball, best played in season mode, VS CPU, or local multiplayer.

As of now, the new PlayStation Now look is only launched for PlayStation 4 consoles. PlayStation Now launched just last May for PlayStation 3, but PlayStation Now Senior Director Jack Buser says that there is still no news of the new PlayStation Now app coming to the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

“We’re really excited about this new interface. We’re launching on PS4 and we’ll see where it goes from there! Our hope is that it helps everyone find awesome games they want to play, as well as discover great new games they haven’t tried yet.”

Those who want to try out the new PlayStation Now app could, as always, avail of the 7 day free trial from Sony before purchasing the subscription. It is also available for enabled Sony Blu-ray players, Sony TV, or Samsung Smart TV.
