Playstation Now not working - stuck on "Preparing your game"

Some games are stuck on "Preparing your game" and some others just say that I can't play the game now.

 

SONY, please fix ASAP!

 

This is very frustrating . . . I am paying for this service and it seems to frequently fail for days at a time.

 

I see from other threads that the issue is on your end and you have to clear the session . . . so please do it ASAP!

Still not working! . . . please fix ASAP or provide FULL refund.  I am paying for a service that you are not providing.  Instead of playing games I am getting very frustrated with an unreliable service that repeatedly fails.

Which country are you in, and did you set this up with an account that is actually your own country?

 

Some useful info on how to fix issues you might be having.

I have been stuck on preparing your game for the last few days. I am currently living in South Korea but am from the UK and my playstaion was purchased there. I signed up for the PS Now trial whilst in Korea and was able to play during the trial but since the trial ended I haven't been to load up any games.

 

If it is the case that I am not able to play because of my location then I would like a full refund, not sure how this could be the case as I was able to play during the trial.

I'm having the same issue here and it's pretty upsetting! 
Every game I try, a message pops up saying: 
"%1 isn't launching for some reason. Please try again", then the screen freezes and I've to restart the system.

Same issue on my account.

Spoke to customer support a couple times now. One of the folks said to come here, someone might have a solution. Still looking for a solution. I am waiting for a direct connection to the game server the tech I spoke to on the phone earlier said he was sending, nothing yet.....

The free trial worked ...... so I bought it and it went down several days ago , I only had the purchased version for gosh a day or two if that.

Anyone find a solution ?

Put your PS4 into your routers DMZ or open the ports PSN uses in the article pasted below.

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PSN-Support/How-to-put-your-PS3-or-PS4-into-a-DMZ/td-p/106553...

 

https://connection.support.playstation.com/#/

 

If the basic connection troubleshooting steps haven’t solved the issue, you may need to open (forward) the PSN ports on your router.

Ports act as endpoints between two connections, and opening the specific PSN ports can help direct the flow of internet traffic between your PS4 and PlayStation Network.

IMPORTANT: If you’re not sure what this means, or you don’t know how to open ports on your router, we strongly recommend speaking to your ISP or router manufacturer before changing any settings on your router. 

Try opening the following ports on your router, then let us know if it solved the problem.

TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480
UDP: 3478, 3479

Hello there,

Thank you for the reply and link to the instructions, which I followed. The instructions gave me the following errors:

CE-38703-1 - https://www.playstation.com/en-nz/get-help/help-library/error-codes/ce-38703-1/ Followed directions

CE-32952-1  had no clue what to do with this error code ?

Playstation Now in the ps4 pro said it could not download playstation now, with options to read the error codes above, or delete. I deleted. I know longer have the playstation now in my account.

Back to the computer - logged into playstation now - "Preparing your game" and "closing the last game" or something rather.

I got discussed and removed the playstation now  ...... I may try again ??

------------------

We think it is interesting this is ONLY happening in my account, no one elses on the same ps4 pro .

Thank you again, and if you have any other ideas for me I am all ears.

Just bought. The system ps4 is pretty cool.. I loved the ps2 when it was out. Played all the time. Didnt like ps3 to much so i switch to xbox 1.. With this new ps4 its has a setback or downfall which im not happy with.. I dont like to spend my money on stuff that doesnt work. So why is my Ps4 Now subscribtion now working? Its stuck on "preparing the game"... Come on man.. Really.. No one should be having this problem. Big company like yall.. Why even have ps4 now if its not up and running RIGHT.. Its a lie and a tease.... Come on sony ps4.. Do something or yall gonna get some baf reviews and xbox is gonna start looking good again...
