The company will also be adding to its 800+ strong offer of PlayStation Now titles, and they're adding four popular titles - the needs-no-introduction PS4 exclusive God of War, Rockstar's needs-even-less-introduction monster Grand Theft Auto V, inFamous Second Son and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
"These games will be available from October 1, until January 2, 2020. Each month, the service will add a new selection of marquee games that will be available for a limited period. The marquee content is on top of the existing offering of popular evergreen titles that are added to PS Now on a regular basis", the company wrote.
Sony claim to have covered 19 territories and 70 per cent of their PlayStation 4 userbase already, so it's time to drum up even more excitement, starting with the TV spot you see below. As you can see - Sony to drop content from the sky, which is certainly one way to describe PlayStation Now.
