Street Fighter V joins the PlayStation Now lineup

Today Sony announced the addition of three titles to its PlayStation Now subscription service, one being Street Fighter V. Players interested in picking Street Fighter V can now play it as part of Sony’s streaming service.
Judging by the marketing material used, it appears that its the base version of Street Fighter V, but it’s still a good place to start from if you’re curious whether the fighter is for you or not. Dropping alongside Capcom’s popular fighter is stealth horror game Hello Neighbor and action-adventure, Watch Dogs 2.
The list of fighting games on PlayStation Now keeps growing, with several others already on the service like Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online Edition, Injustice Ultimate Edition, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, Skullgirls, and Tekken 7. Even Microsoft is increasing its fighting game offering on Xbox Game Pass with the inclusion of Soul Calibur VI last week.
PlayStation Now was originally launched as just a streaming service (in open beta) on July 31, 2014 for PlayStation 4 and September 18 the same year. Since then the platform has evolved, allowing subscribers to download games to their consoles if they prefer not to stream.
If you’ve got a huge backlog as I do, then PlayStation Now is a great way to go back to gems you might have missed over the past few years.
