The PlayStation Now subscription service still has a long way to go before it comes close to rivaling the impressive value for money offered by Xbox Game Pass... but it's undeniable that it's getting much, much better all the time.
In the last few months alone, PlayStation Now has gone from a slightly naff app that offers a handful of PS4 games and some old PS3 games you don't care about, to a genuinely worthy streaming service that offers some of the best Sony exclusives around, as well as a slew of massive AAA releases from the past few years.
In a thrilling development, PlayStation Now has just delivered one of its best new content drops yet. Control, one of the finest games of 2019, is now available to stream and play via the app. If you missed out on Remedy Entertainment's ethereal, spook-filled action game when it came out last summer, shame on you. The good news is you now have an easy, cheap way to fix that mistake.
If you're already subscribed to PS Plus, great! Get cracking. If not, you can dive into a free seven day trial, where you'll probably be able to smash through Control in a few days, if you really put your mind to it. If you've already used up your free trial, I'd honestly recommend just getting a month's subscription. It's less than a tenner, and you get to play a really great game that was, it must be said, not quite as appreciated as it should have been.
If you hadn't already guessed, I have a real soft spot for Control. But then, so do the rest of the team at GAMINGbible. Not only did we give the game a glowing 9/10 review, we also crowned it as our game of the year for 2019. It might not be to everyone's tastes, but its appearance on PS Now marks the perfect time for those who aren't sure to give it a try.
Oh, I should also point out that Control isn't the only new game to hit the service. If you needed anymore convincing, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is also joining PS Now, which is... well, it's alright. It's definitely not a bad game, it's just not a great game either. It's no Control, let's put it that way.
Both titles will be available until August 31st, alongside fellow newcomers Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and NASCAR Heat 3. But as I say, Control should be where your priorities lie. Don't let me down.
