PS Now is often overlooked by many console players, but like Xbox Game Pass, it offers tremendous value for those willing to subscribe.
Unlike Sony's PS Plus service (which pays for online multiplayer and gifts 2 free games a month), PS Now is a bit like a Netflix streaming service for PlayStation users.
Although players can also download a wealth of games if they don't fancy streaming.
It's also probably the best (and only) place to scratch that PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 itch without resorting to emulators or dusting off the old consoles.
Rather play on the PC? You can do that too if you really want to.
Like all subscription services, titles come and go, and that leads us nicely onto the new spooky additions that have just been added this week.
Once again, another PlayStation 4 exclusive gets a run out in Days Gone. So if you're yet to give it a go and dont want to stump up the £20+ to buy it yourself, you could instead jump into PS Now and a wealth of over 700+ other games.
How Expensive Is PS Now?
To be honest, it's not really that expensive compared to other services.
On top of the customary seven-day free trial, you can join PS Now costs £8.99 per month, or £22.99 for three months.
If you're feeling especially flush, you could also grab £49.99 for 12 months.
But as with all things, you can find these cheaper if you hunt around. For instance, right now you could pick up a PlayStation Now 12 Month UK Subscription for £39.85 on ShopTo.
So you need not worry about it breaking the bank!

As we have seen with past Sony PlayStation first-party exclusives, Days Gone is only available for a limited time on PS Now. So if you've fancied giving it a go, you've got until January 5, 2021 to make the most of it.

"Sword swinging, perilous puzzles and enchanting environments are brought back to life in this full remake of the original PlayStation action-adventure. Step into the bones of Sir Daniel Fortesque, an inept — and long-dead — knight accidentally resurrected by the evil sorcerer Zarok, 100 years after his embarrassing demise. With the kingdom of Gallowmere under threat by Zarok’s demon hordes, only the skeletal Sir Dan stands in his way. A second chance for the toothy grinned, undead adventurer is at hand — can you defeat Zarok and grant Sir Dan the honour he lost in the flesh?"
