That other Sony article is even worse.. the headline does not agree with the actual content ;p

"The biggest downside to PlayStation Now is that it's just so darn expensive"

So how does it turn a Smart TV into a fun gaming system?

What does one have to do with the other?

Fair question

I include the prices and selection of games and the terms of use in my evaluation of how fun a gaming system is

To me the price of something is a major factor... paying "rent" for a game that is not part of a subscription that you are already paying is also not fun (a point the author doesn't even mention!.. over 100 games are not part of the PSNOW subscription service and thus you have to pay RENT on TOP of a possible SUBSCRIPTION)

Well, this gives an Smart TV a gaming offering, so that's great. But is it fun to have 2 different catalogs for sub vs rented ? Or these absurdly high prices for rentals?

In the end an experience is only fun if you are happy with it. And being constantly reminded that you have to pay makes it inherently unfun for me

TL;DR.. I like owning things

Well it sounds like the software is well made and runs well. The expensive part doesn't really make it "not fun".

$30 a month doesn't sound horrible, though from what I hear your subscription selection is much smaller than your rental selection.

Sony is paying for it so it's not crowdfunding.
