    That last link "costs £12.99" leads you to a place that sells guitar picks...

    Slightly disappointed by Sony and this.

    The whole thing seems a bit half-baked. Wired controller, no PS4 titles and £13/m

    You could probably buy a secondhand PS3 and all the games you want to play for around a years subs.

    Looks interesting, but I guess they haven't added keyboard and mouse support and you have to have a controller to play?

    There's literally a wireless controller and dongle inches above your comment....
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    Re: PlayStation Now launches on PC in UK, Belgium, the Netherlands

    I think he's maybe confusing wired controller with the recommendation for a wired internet connection on your PC??

    While I like the idea of the service, I think the price needs to be more like £5-8 p/m to make it worthwhile... 2nd hand PS3's and games are pretty cheap, and give the added advantage of being separate from the PC for flexibility, DVD/BR player for another room, and less demand on the internet connection.
    Add me on BL and Steam - Egg-O-Deth

    Sounds like a proving ground for next-gen consoles which will probably be more like this.

    Re: PlayStation Now launches on PC in UK, Belgium, the Netherlands

    There are still countries in EU where there is no PS NOW even for PS users available. So as a PC user I would like to play Uncharted, God of War and Last Of Us, but I do not even have a chance ))))))))))) so I will stay with Steam and other services who do not divide world into countries we love and countries we #### on..
