It's streaming. There is always going to be some lag.

It worked fine for me the few times I tried it in the Beta. The problem for me was the complete lack of compelling games to play. Might be different now, not sure.

Is anybody else surprised that there isn't some kind of "trial" or "demo" with the PS Now service ? I mean, you'd think they would want to let people try it for like 5 minutes, just to see how bad the lag is (or isn't).

I was looking around in there for a way to try the service out without actually putting any money into it, but I couldn't find that option if it exists.

Was thinking of checking the service during the beta. If there's nothing at all provided for free to test their service and performance, then why call it a test? Sounds more like a limited rollout, and I'm not paying Sony to test their stuff. Might as well wait until the service launches, wait for a game that compels me to try it, etc. The pricing isn't too hot either after studying the lists so far. Maybe that will improve by official launch time.

Oh it gets worse than that... I played the Pacific Rim game and laughed the whole time.

It does have a Connection Test and will let you know if you can stream the games or not. Go to the PS store, PlayStation Now and the last option will have the Connection Test.

Yeah, I tried the connection test. It said that it would work.

I just think it's a bit weird that they wouldn't give you like a 5 minute sample, just to see how it works. Maybe there is a technical challenge with doing something like that.


The only game I can think of streaming, would be Uncharted 2. I never finished Uncharted 2, and I've never even touched Uncharted 3. I wouldn't mind streaming Uncharted 2, but if there was any lag at all, any degradation in the video quality or anything, then I would be seriously disappointed. If there was zero lag, and zero image quality loss (at least to my perceptions of it), then I would be seriously impressed. Still, I'm more interested in using this service as a way to rent PS4 games. I'm just not that excited about playing PS3 games right now.

I'd pay $5 to be able to play Uncharted 2 for like 20 days. It would be worth the opportunity to test the system out, but other than that, I guess I'm just going to turn a blind eye to PS Now. Instead, I'm going to jump on the EA / XB1 bandwagon ! Lol... just kidding... sorta.

There is almost no circumstance where I'd actually pay to stream a game. I think it'd be really neat for demos though, but those don't really exist anymore.
