5 Final Fantasy games are coming to PlayStation Now starting next week

PlayStation Now will be adding some of the most iconic titles from the Final Fantasy series between now and January 2022. With a subscription, you’ll have a new chapter of the franchise to play on your PlayStation 4 or 5, or to stream to your PC, every month.

PS Now is a subscription service available on PlayStation consoles that allows you to stream games right to your console or PC. The service features titles from almost every generation of PlayStation hardware, from PS1 to PS4.

The Final Fantasy titles included in this deal and their availability dates are as follows.

  • Final Fantasy 7 — September 7, 2021
  • Final Fantasy 8 Remastered — October 5, 2021
  • Final Fantasy 9 — November 2, 2021
  • Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remaster — December 7, 2021
  • Final Fantasy 12 — January 4, 2022

While PS Now has been criticized in the past for its streaming limitations, it is a good place for games that don’t require quick actions. This means that players can enjoy these JRPGs without the fear of latency and lag getting in the way of the experience.

Keep in mind that these games are already available for download on the Xbox Game Pass service. Those interested in playing on PC might want to compare the two subscription services before committing to PlayStation Now’s deal.

PS Now is available on PlayStation 4 and 5. Its Final Fantasy additions will begin appearing on the service on September 7. You can subscribe right from your console, starting with a free trial, and pick from a one-month, three-month, or 12-month deal.

When will Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth be on PC?
Cloud,. Aerith, and Tifa stand together in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

PlayStation 5 players have been raving about the second part of the FF7 remake project Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. As with the first part, it was made clear well in advance that this game would be a PlayStation exclusive at launch, however, we did eventually get Remake of the first part on PC around a year later. This gives PC players hope that the same treatment will be given to Rebirth, but the big question becomes how long will we have to wait this time? Is it possible to see it come to PC storefronts faster than its prequel, or will we need to bide our time avoiding spoilers for months on end? Here's our best estimate as to when you can expect to see Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth on PC.
What is the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth PC release date?

The sad fact of the matter is we don't have an official release date for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth on PC or any other platform at this time. But there is reason to at least hope that the wait won't be as long this time around. Our only clue is that the marketing for Rebirth states that it is a PlayStation 5 exclusive until at least May 29, 2024. That's exactly three months after its initial release.

Does PlayStation 5 have a web browser?
Playstation 5 with a controller.

Sony added a bunch of great functionality to PS5, but one thing that's missing is a web browser. Unlike its predecessor, PS4, there's not a standard web browser you can access from your home screen. That's a bit of a letdown, as it feels like a huge step back from what was available years ago.

Thankfully, all is not lost. With a little elbow grease and a lot of ingenuity, you can access a web browser on PS5. The process is quite convoluted, and it's not the most user-friendly browser, but it's possible to surf the web on your fancy new-gen console.

Sony today unveiled the March 2024 lineup of new games for the PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra catalog. Jak and Daxter fans, whom PlayStation and Naughty Dog rarely acknowledge, got a win today as the PSP version of Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier is getting rereleased for the first time via PlayStation Plus Premium on March 19.

Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier was released for PSP and PS2 in 2009 and is the closest thing we've ever gotten to a Jak 4. Although it's not as well-polished as Naughty Dog's trilogy, it's an important piece of Jak and Daxter history that wasn't easily playable outside of original hardware until this month. Hopefully, this sets the stage for PS Plus Premium rerelease of Daxter will eventually happen, although that isn't confirmed at this time.
