It looks like Sony is finally planning to add PS5 games to its gaming subscription service and Game Pass competitor PS Now – it’s about time!
By now, every gamer knows that Xbox’s Game Pass is one of the very best value ways to enjoy all the latest new games. Unfortunately for PlayStation fans, however, Sony’s PS Now has a lot of catching up to do.
Despite the PS5 launching almost a year ago now, there are still no signs of PS5 games on PS Now. This could all be changing soon though.
If you want to play PS5 games now though, you’ll need a new console. Check out handy Stock Trackers if you’re on the hunt for a PS5:

Are PS5 Games Finally Coming to PlayStation Now?
While Sony’s online service PlayStation Plus has more members than ever, PS Now is an often forgotten service on PS4 and PS5.
Sony is planning to have some huge improvements to PlayStation Now soon though, according to a recently published patent. Plus, it looks like PS5 games will finally come to PS Now as well.
The patent in question, spotted by DualShockers, details ‘Ultra High-Speed Low-Latency Network Storage’. This is very similar to how Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming service operates and lets players stream over 100 games to various devices.
The patent says that Sony will be using the same speedy storage drives in the PS5 for PlayStation Now streaming in the future. This means that, while not confirmed yet, PS5 games are very likely to come to PS Now in the near future.
Will the addition of PS5 games be enough to convince you to start a PS Now subscription? If we are lucky, they might even bundle in the rumored PlayStation Plus Video Pass in with it.
In other news, PlayStation fans have plenty to look forward to. Sony Santa Monica has just revealed the first God of War Ragnarok trailer.
Additionally, the Spider-Man 2 reveal trailer showed off the villains in the game. Also, Insomniac confirmed that both Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine will be PS5 exclusives.
