for me Gamepass is by far the better (and much cheaper) service with higher quality and newer titles plus all future first party games at launch, this probably being the biggest selling point. With PS now visual quality isn't great and you have added input lag due to streaming, with gamepass I can play Gear 4 in full 4K HDR on my X and now Rise of The Tomb Raider in the same manner on my actual console all with no issues. Granted many older titles are on PS now but when you consider that I bought about 6 of such games for a tenner and simply popped the disc in the Xbox to play them and once again at higher quality than was possible it's not much of a selling point.

Of course there's a difference between dashboard and store. Who said there isn't? There are ads on both now, though.
Also, I don't remember being able to buy a slim Jim or anything like that from the psn store. But I've seen ads for them there.

I don't care that you don't know what you're talking about. Enjoy the blissful ignorance.

@rjejr
Yeah, they certainly sound different, I haven't used either one though so want to have some experience with both before giving an opinion either way. I will say from what I know, if I were going to pay for one it would be Game Pass without hesitation. It's a great deal and getting Crackdown 3 with it is an added bonus. That's been on my most-wanted list since it was announced and was a reason I bought an Xbox One.

So in my mind the summary goes something like this - PS Now is a service to rent and play PS3 games on your PS4 and PC at way too high of a price to stream games, Game Pass is a service to rent 360 and X1 games downloaded to your X1. So in my head PS4 Now is about past games, Game Pass is about current games.

That's not 100% accurate, but they are more different than same in my head.

@Yowza so you are saying you are preemptively mad? Makes sense. Dont forget to beat your wife tonight before she cheats on you.

Also, The ps4 store doesn't have ads (besides showing you games) and games don't have ads under them. Unless you are counting them showing you ad-ons or streams of that game...

Do you get mad at your local game shop for having a poster advertising a new game? Of course not. Stop being rediculous.

@Splints no, dummy. I'm saying that RIGHT NOW it's just a single tile you can easily delete. But IF WE DONT SPEAK UP ABOUT IT, it can get to a point where it becomes obnoxious. Like the Xbox dashboard.

Also, PS store ABSOLUTELY has ads. Open it right now. The very first thing you see is "sponsored content". Or didn't you know that's an ad? When you go to sale page or any page for that matter, your cursor is automatically over a "promoted tile". Or didn't you realize that's an ad?
Under the games on main screen, most have several "games you may be interested in". Or didn't you know THATS an ad?

Okay chicken little lets hold back the world is ending rhetoric for something that actually is upsetting.

There is a 100% difference between the dashboard and the store. Both of your complaints are about the store. In an article about the dashboard.

You know what? come to think of it I have never bought a movie from the playstation store. How dare they have a menu i have to ignore on their app that I freely use without cost to me to download games that I want instead of going to the store (because stores don't have featured content, flyers, or advertisements). And you know what else? I am hella mad that they have the gull to suggest other games I may like! Who the hell do they think they are! This is absolute madness and needs to stop before its too late!!! Should we start a petition? Whats our next step? Please oh leader of the playstation resistance, lead us to glory!

@Splints next step is being complacent and making false comparisons because you don't personally have the foresight to understand companies will push things as far as they can.

Of course there's a difference between dashboard and store. Who said there isn't? There are ads on both now, though.

I doubt I'd see an ad for a service not supported in my account region, and I don't care for Now since it lost Vita support (RP doesn't seem to run any apps that stream content themselves)... but I don't picture myself raging about it even in theory. Perhaps I'd get frustrated if it greeted me upon connecting for weeks, but free trials don't usually last all that long either. XD

@OneManDroid They won't be making a profit on PS Now if they just put it in with Plus. Also Now isn't available in every country so fracturing the Plus service like that isn't smart either. The price hike was to lineup with other country's prices. And the removal of PS3 and Vita games was something many were calling out for anyway, so it's hardly a sign that Sony is in decline. Also it's just an AD.

@Tasuki Radio content is free, you don't pay the radio station, anyone with a receiver has access to it. The PS4 however isn't. You already paid for the system (and the games, and maybe the service too), so seeing ads on it (even though you've disabled it) is a bit rubbish. It's like paying full price for a game and then it asks you to pay more... oh wait, that's already a thing too...
