The PS Now games for January 2022 have just been revealed, but if they didn't take your fancy, you might be wondering about what changes are coming next to Sony's subscription service.
For anyone who doesn't know, PS Now is a cloud-based gaming service that allows you to stream games on your PlayStation and even your PC. It wouldn't be wrong if we referred to the PS Now service as "Netflix of videogames" given the sheer number of gaming titles available on the platform, and more are always added. Every month, a fresh set of games are added (and removed) from the services games list, which currently includes hundreds of PS4, PS3, and PS2 games, ready to play on demand.
Here's what we know about the games that are coming to PS Now in February 2022.
14 January 2022 -
According to a new report from GamesBeat's Jeff Grubb, Sony Is quietly pulling PS Now cards from sale in UK retailers. GamesBeat received a copy of an internal directive from GAME where management said: "Stores have until the close of day Wednesday 19, January to remove all POS and ESD cards from all customer-facing areas and update their digital bays in line with this week’s upcoming commercial update."
It's suggested that this latest move could be part of a larger plan from Sony to shelve PS Now in favor of a more robust, tiered subscription service which can rival Xbox Game Pass.
PS Now February 2022 Release Date
Typically PS Now games change over on the first Tuesday of the month. In the case of February 2022, we can therefore likely expect the next big PS Now changes to take on February 1.
PS Now February 2022 Predictions
Like PS Plus and Games with Gold it's very difficult to predict what games get added to the PS Now games list. However, there's a slim chance that we might be seeing another game from the GTA Trilogy join the PS Now service in February 2022.
The GTA III Definitive Edition was added to the PS Now games list in December, but will be removed on Monday, January 31. If we was the type to place a bet, we'd suggest that the GTA Vice City Definitive Edition or GTA San Andreas Definitive Edition could be decent contenders to join the service next.
However, we should say, this is all just speculation and we could easily be wrong. We could be wrong. We'll be updating this list as and when we have more information about the free games that make it to the PS Now January 2022 list.
