These Classics Deserve to Be On Sony's PlayStation Now Service

Look, Sony, all I want is to play Mark of Kri again. On my Vita this time. Whenever I want.

I'm not one of those folks who's held onto legacy video game hardware from eras gone by. So, when Sony announced their PlayStation Now streaming service yesterday and their intention to populate it with games from their systems' collective back-catalogue, a sub-routine deep in my brain starting coming up with games I'd love to play again.

You've got to figure that some of the games that will wind up on PlayStation Now are givens, like Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, the God of War and Ratchet & Clank games. And, yes, many of these old PlayStation games are digitally available for PS3, including my beloved Mark of Kri. But, that doesn't necessarily mean that they'll be on PlayStation Now. Remember, the promise of the service is that you can have any PlayStation-released game streamed to your phone, if you wanted to. Someone needs to wave the Fua Toko Faahu flag so that Rau and his awesome feathered sidekick get on the streaming service. I vote me.

    Still not a fan of gaming as a service, and not a product.

    I dunno if I've missed something obvious, but how is this streaming gonna work? OnLive was only possible in a select few cities of USA. PS Vita -> PS4 remote play doesn't even work 100% within a local wifi network. Now they wanna stream games to a touchscreen phone via 3/4G...?

      I live in Australia (god-awful internet) and streaming to my Vita has so far been completely flawless...

        So you are streaming via wifi, whilst located somewhere else? Pretty sure Kotaku even did reviews and it only worked in a select few cases. Local streaming was hit/miss too.

    Devil Dice on a phone would be perfect. So would Vib Ribbon. I loved Sheep Dog n Wolf (anyone remember that?). Be really happy to see and play all them again!
