There's no possible way this can be free. Not if it actually rolls out as a service. 7 days free? There's just no way.

why not? plus gives out 5 games a month permanently, as long as you're a subscriber. Random titles for 1-7 days for free is nothing.

Maybe something to do with the recent psn problems. Surely it won't always be free. I figure this may have not meant to be live and is a part of PS Now and the prices just aren't there yet.

I was confused by this thread at first. I thought this was about "Playstation Now" but it's actually PSN? This sounds amazing!

EDIT: Oh, so it is Playstation Now? I'll be surprised if they keep the 7 day free rental.

From what I can tell it only works for People with PS+. I tried it on my non PS+ account and nothing. So I guess PSnow is part of PS+?

Holy crap, that's awesome!

Since we know so little currently, I'd suspect that the free rentals are tied to having a PS+ subscription. Anyone here not have PS+, that can verify that it's free for everyone?

I think is region based (as PSNow is supposed to be). I checked on my Plus account (MEX) and it didn't look like that. I checked on my non-Plus US account and yep, it appears.

There's no way 7-days will be free not even 1 day.

Most games can easily be powered through in 7 days. If so...then....I mean....all of my goddamns. All of it.

Go back to the game and click the Full Game Trial (only for PS+ members)? This way you can download the whole game and if these passes work you should be able to play it all within the time limit. If they don't the game will stop after 60 minutes. Personally I think this won't actually work, since those PS+ Trials need a patch to be fully unlocked and if you check out with the 1/7/30 day pass you don't get such a thing (which would indicate that well PS Now is only streaming what isn't working yet).

Pretty cool, PS+ is already a pretty great option for "renting" a game but being able to choose titles is pretty awesome.

Don't know how devs and publishers will feel about it though.

I'd hope it would start when you boot the game, not when you downloaded it.

Would certainly help games with more legs, like multiplayer games ... but yeah, something like the Last of Us or GTA or South Park can be beat in much less time than 7 days ...

I seriously doubt we'll be able to rent new games, in that, Gamefly will be the better option. It still would no doubt cut into their business a bit.
