PS Now Has Mass Effect 2, Mirror's Edge, More Coming Soon for Streaming

Christmas is coming a bit early for gamers, because Mirror's Edge, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 2, Bejeweled 3 and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition are coming for PS Now.

The U.S. PlayStation blog dropped news about some popular titles making their way to the PlayStation Now network starting December 2, thanks to a new partnership collaboration with EA Games.

Among the games to now become available for streaming through the PS Store's service are some of the system's biggest hits, such as Mirror's Edge, Mass Effect 2, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, Bejeweled 3 and Dead Space 3. 

Each of these games will be made available for players who want to rent them for about $1 per day if they opt for a week, but it is noted that players can select from "a variety of options," depending on how long they would like to rent the game. 

PlayStation has made the purchases easier to access on PS Now, as well. As soon as the games of choice are rented, players can leap right into the action without having to wait for downloads, patches, or other time-consuming processes that tend to fill many with great impatience. Add in the feature of automatic cloud game saving, and the games can travel with you, too.

EA itself is the latest addition to the growing number of PlayStation's business partnerships, including but not limited to Square Enix, Sega, Konami, and Capcom. Blog author Peter Jamshidi also mentions that the company will "continue to add more."

Since the service's growth spanning five different platforms--select Sony TVs, as well as the PS3, PS4, PS Vita and PS TV--gamers who make use of the PS Now streaming have racked up a total of over 100 years worth of streamed gaming time.

With PS Now still in Beta, the staff are also reportedly working on subscription services for the PS Now, but those details have yet to come. Until then, happy 100 years of gaming!
