Sony is rolling out a new feature for PlayStation Now: the ability to download titles for offline play.

PlayStation Now subscribers will soon be able to download titles available on the service to their PS4.

Sony announced the new feature today, stating almost all PS4 games will be available for download. This includes PS2 games remastered for PS4. But it doesn’t include PS3 titles as they “are not compatible to run natively on PS4,” Sony told GI.biz.

Downloaded games will also support all purchased DLC, microtransactions, add-ons, and PS4 Pro enhancements.



Sony explained how players can download a game they are currently streaming to their PS4.

“If you’ve already started a game via streaming on PS Now and want to continue playing locally on your PS4, you can transfer your save file from the PS Now cloud to your console with a PS Plus membership (sold separately).

“This is done by transferring the save file from the PS Now cloud to your PS Plus cloud storage, then transferring it from the PS Plus cloud storage to your PS4 system. Check out this page for step-by-step instruction videos on how to transfer your game saves.”

Users will still need to connect their PS4 system to the internet “every few days” to verify their PS Now subscription. This is the case even if only playing downloaded games.

The download feature will be gradually rolled out to PS Now subscribers over the next couple of days.

    I bought this game on release and can't get into it. I've barely scratched the surface of it. Does anybody think its a bit overrated?

    79. Decent innings. Race With The Devil is one of my guilty pleasures. RIP

    Coutinho off on loan to Bayern Munich apparently. You'd think that would kill off any talk of Neymar returning to Barcelona?

    Great goal. I've always liked Aduriz. He may be 38 and slow but he knows where the goal is. Barcelona were poor last night, they may...

    There are actors that epitomise a certain era, that have a type of "cool" presence, Fonda was absolutely one of those. Sad news.
