Sony Europe have announced a number of Japanese titles that will be added to their PlayStation Now service in Europe today, and Gravity Rush Remastered is one of them! Previously, the game had already been released for PlayStation Now in Japan. In the US, Sony have opted for an entirely different lineup of games to be added to PS Now this month, which doesn’t include Gravity Rush Remastered. Unfortunately, the service is only available in a few European countries for the moment, namely the UK, The Netherlands and Belgium. Recently, Sony Europe announced that the service would also be coming to France, Germany and Luxembourg this year.
PlayStation Now is a game streaming service that allows people to play a growing collection of PS3 and PS4 games on the PS4 and PC. As such, this makes it possible for PC gamers to play PlayStation exclusives such as Gravity Rush Remastered without even owning a PS4. That said, a PlayStation Now subscription does cost £12.99/€16.99 per month, a price that doesn’t compare favorably to popular video or music streaming services. In comparison, in the US Sony offers an annual PS Now subscription of $99.99 per year, making it considerably cheaper there than in the EU. A one week free trial is available for those who want to give it a try.
Now that the game is available in Europe I’ll be looking into the difference between the game played natively on a PS4 versus PlayStation Now. Look forward to an article on that later on!
