Really more interested in if a Playstation Plus/Crunchyroll merge happens.

I saw the word "could."

As in, I "could" be People's sexiest man of the year.

If you have a PS5, wtf do you care about PS1, 2, or 3 games?  I can see maybe playing some 4's, I guess.

I admit to a limited understanding here, but isn't that what PSNow offers?

I just want to buy some classic games and play them offline without needing to pay for a subscription service. Christ.

Kinda late. I don't need two game subscriptions for playing third party games, and since this isn't going to offer day 1 first party games I'm just in the same position I'm in now, having Gamepass and buying the PS exclusives I want right away or waiting for them to hit PS+.

Good for those with a Playstation only though, Gamepass has been the best value for any game service I've ever paid for.

Maybe they should try having PS5s be widely available?

PSNow is cloud-based, meaning you're only streaming the games to your console (hence the availability of PS2/PS3 games that don't run natively on a PS4/PS5.

Honestly I kind of agree with you. It's one of those features I always like to have, yet one I rarely use. I barely missed the backwards compatibility once it was gone with my PS4 (I had one of the OG PS3s that still had it).

I am glad my PS5 can still play PS4 games, though.

PS Now started allowing downloads for some PS4 and PS2 games. Sounds like they will broaden that effort to include more games to make a competitive service, though PS Now has a harder time because it is far less advertised or given the kind of focus of Gamepass.

I tried watching that show once, and it seems very clear to me that an abundance of cocaine was available to all the people involved with it. A fairly obvious abundance.

Driver on PS1 with updated graphics would actually be a fun side project. I very much remember being blown away with the original at the time.

I remember it being fun... once you figured out how the hell to get past the introductory level/tutorial. "Here's a list of a dozen driving terms, hope you know exactly what each refers to because you've got a strict time limit to perform them in!"

Let me know when they allow multi-platform play on PC like XBox Game Pass does.  Being hardware agnostic is why Xbox game pass is thriving.

I still play that occasionally. That last mission is a bastard.

Side note, but as someone who has moved on beyond consoles, I am really becoming fond of cloud gaming. Being able to select a game and just play it on almost any device, usually at high graphic settings, is just super convenient.

I purchased a 2 month "gift card" to Geforce Now. While the free tier is extremely generous, it may be worth the subscription to show your support for it and enjoy raytracing. That said, I am THINKING of switching to a Stadia subscription once it expires. Though it has the best business model (purchase games plus get access to a selection with a subscription), the game selection feels a little lackluster.

Xbox Cloud Gaming via Game Pass has the best selection of games, but the input lag is more noticeable than on the prior two mentioned. And while you can side load it on to an Android TV device, a lot of games may not work properly. Playstation Now has no Android option at the moment, and I've heard their PC app is a total mess.
