Region Free Sony Blu-ray Players with Playstation Now

region free sony blu-ray players with playstation nowOne of the last features you might expect to see from a Region Free Blu-ray Player is the ability to play video games, but Sony has just changed all that. As of the time of this writing, all 2016 Sony Blu-ray Players are equipped with Playstation Now access.
 
As a leader in both the gaming and home electronics industry, Sony made an unprecedented move by combining two of their biggest talents - home theater and gaming - into all of their new Blu-ray models, giving consumers an improved value for their dollar and leaving their competitors unable to compete. After all, Sony is the only Blu-ray manufacturer who also has their own gaming system, therefore, the only manufacturer (as of right now) able to make this ingenious power move.
 
If you're still wondering how they've managed to do this (or what Playstation Now is and how it works) keep reading.
 
Playstation Now is a cloud-based gaming service, based off the ever-popular Playstation Gaming Console. It allows users to subscribe and enjoy streaming gaming not only from the Playstation Console itself but also from other Sony devices, with Sony Blu-ray Players being the latest addition. It works like any internet-based subscription, and subscribers can log-in and play from anywhere (with an enabled device). Users can even save their game progress on one device and then continue their game on a different device. All you need to play is your Region Free Sony Blu-ray Player and a Playstation DualShock 4 controller. You can plug the controller directly into the Blu-ray Player's frontal USB port and game away!
 
There are different levels of subscriptions available which include both short-term and long-term game rentals. You can subscribe and pay for nothing more than the games they choose to rent, or you can subscribe with a monthly or quarterly subscription which allows for unlimited access to all available games. Prices for monthly subscriptions start at $19.99 per month for unlimited service. Currently, there are over 400 games available on the Playstation Now service with more being added each week.
 
The only downside is that the titles currently offered are all Playstation 3 games, which is primarily due to meeting the needs of the average user - as well as global streaming media standards. Sony wants to keep data transfer rates that are acceptable for a majority of internet users and not just those with ultra-fast internet speeds. In order to achieve quality gaming, Sony has optimized Playstation Now to work with the average internet connection but it's recommended that users have a 5mb per second for good quality experience. In the future, as technology allows and as internet speeds continue to improve, newer titles will be added.
 
As far as we're concerned, Sony's move of combining Playstation Now with their Blu-ray Players offers a truly powerful and convenient platform; one that says a lot about where the future of gaming is headed. They've literally shed a completely new light on both home theater and gaming.
