They just put out PS Now on the PS Vita it's in beta right now but I'm playing Final Fantasy 13 on my Vita and it looks great. Supposedly they stream the game off of the cloud so you need a decent internet connection.

There are a ton of games including things like dead island. I'm mostly just interested in RPGs so I didn't pay too much attention to anything else but there's killzone 3 (not sure where that is in terms of latest) I did notice Alpha protocol which makes me wonder about other bioware games eventually like Dragon Age or Mass Effect. I may be getting the company wrong but is sort of remember that being part of that line. I also infamous and bunch of various Saints row things.

It cost $6 to rent the game for 7 days. I think its $15 for 30 days. I'm hoping you can buy the games. Supposedly they have hundreds of titles lined up for Playstation now

Small market aside it is a good piece of hardware with some good games. Don't even start up with this nonsense... move along if you dislike it there is no good reason for you to linger here.

I have been wanting a all-access subscription model for PS Now for a while... the option to purchase unlimited access to individual games is appealing too now that you can play on the Vita. If they do go through with that I hope they release a client for PC as well.

After a day of messing around with PS Now I still think it's a great idea it's just a bit rough around the edges. When the connection hiccups the game shuts down. In a game with save points its really annoying. I had to replay the opening of FF13 multiple times. Of course this is beta I'm sure they will fix it.

Biggest problem right now is pricing. I will definitely consider a subscription.

The $3 for 4 hours price is kind of crazy but the $6 for 7 days isn't too horrible (Especially if you were used to renting from Blockbuster) and it sure beats buying the game and finding out you didn't really like it. I really thought FF13 was going to be better.

Unfortunately you'll need to put in like 20 hours before FFXIII opens up. It's basically a 20+ hour glorified linear tutorial up until that point.

Vita = JRPGS = Life

Edit: Don't approve of playstation now. Unless the game is short enough that you could possible beat in 4 hours, it's overpriced to me.

I'll give it another shot. I took the 7 days for $6 option. You really have to not know what Final Fantasy is if you take the 4 hour option and think you're going to get anywhere. Actually I'm not sure why anyone would take the 4 hour option on any game. I have to say that 8 bucks for 30 days isn't bad. Again though I was there for the $5 for 2 day blockbuster rentals.

The real draw for this though is that FF13 isn't a Vita game the fact that I can play a full PS3 game on my Vita is awesome and it doesn't eat up any of my precious memory card space. That's my one complaint about the vita the damn memory cards. Well and maybe you can't get the oled screen anymore.
