Puppeteer was one of the most charming games ever.

If you haven't bought it and have a ps3, go do it now or else you're effectively killing off creativity.

I bought Uncharted 2 and Puppeteer for my Nephew for Christmas.

Ironically I think Puppeteer looked to childish for him and he only played Uncharted cos he couldnt get enough of it.

I told him thats fine but he had to make sure he come back to it as it looks like a brilliant game, at least from the demo I played. Pfft, kids.

i'm 30, i bought it and i loved it. haven't completed it yet due to lack of time but i'm planning to.
Triella  +   601d ago
I'm an adult and I'd choose Puppeteer or Tearaway over Uncharted anytime.

On the other hand I can relate to your nephew's POV since I've always found Mario games to be rather childish and unappealing.

Agree. This game is bursting with creative design and has more care and attention to detail than 90% of other titles. It's a real shame that COD sells 300mill copies and games like thid fall off the map. This is truly a wonderful and charming game.

Input lag will be my major concern if i ever go to adopt this.
ginsunuva  +   602d ago
Won't really be noticeable for non-FPS's.

Also internet speeds get faster over time, so lag will only die down with time.
Eidolon  +   601d ago
Latency is more of an issue for input lag... higher bandwidth will not help.

GameInformer - "The most important detail is the lag between hitting a button and watching your actions on screen, and in that area I experienced almost none. The latency was super low and didn't feel noticeable different from if I was playing on a TV hooked up to my PlayStation at home."

Engadget - "We got our hands on PlayStation Now today at a CES 2014 PlayStation event, where we tried God of War: Ascension on a Bravia TV (without a PS3) and The Last of Us on a Vita. Both games played like there was a local PlayStation 3 (including the incredibly long initial load for The Last of Us) and ran without a hitch. There was zero perceptible lag in our (admittedly brief) playtime."

Destructoid - "Gameplay was very responsive and completely lag free."

The Verge - "The game's loading time left a bit to be desired, but once it was running, things went on without a hitch. Yes, there's a slightly perceptible lag between button presses and the corresponding action onscreen, but we still managed to slay numerous enemies in God of War's brutal style without it being a problem."

I hope that helps.

Have you forget that they had a server in the near corridor,thats the reason they didnt experience any or minimal latency on input lag.In real world application the lag will be very noticible indeed.The only way i can see this working is having the choise to download the game first to an HDD.Direct stream from cloud server will give players a great ammount of input lag due to latency ..this not mention the input lag that HDTV have already.

streaming via TVs is interesting. TV seller for Sony if they play their cards right i can see their TVs division rising up.
Bathyj  +   602d ago
They should throw in a month at least of PSNow with every TV purchase, that will make the service take off.

But if they threw a year in that would make their TVS take off.
Jughead3416  +   602d ago
I hope they start out with a large number of titles to choose from. But you know how it is when a service first launches. They start with like 4 titles and add more here and there. Seems like they only showed off exclusives. Wonder if they'll offer 3rd party titles also.

Game streaming = epic fail

OnLive failed badly.

The games looked awful, PC vers looked worse than the console vers.
ginsunuva  +   602d ago
Gaikai >>>>> Onlive tech.

Also Onlive didn't have many popular games.
beatled  +   601d ago
nope

everyone still reporting lag and downgraded visuals

as in worse visuals than the already crappy looking 8 year old ps3 versions with major latency between button presses

and this is in a controlled environment

will be absolute crap most likely

Man dualshockers are always on the ball with ps4 news recently. keep up the good work! and btw psnow looks to work flawlessly.
nope111  +   602d ago
If this gains traction and becomes highly successful, i fear it might threaten physical retail.I hope it flops hard. I will not accept a digital only future, i like owning my games.

maybe we can have both? or is that not possible?

Yes I think you are! As the old saying goes "One man's garbage is another man's treasure!" You may not be impressed, but believe me, there are those who are! myself included.
gomp333  +   601d ago
what is so great about this?
stuna1  +   601d ago
The chance to experience titles you may have missed out on across different platforms, whether at home or on the go! The possibly to also play titles that may be hard to find or out of production all together. The ability to have media literally at your fingertips regardless of what platform you choose to access that media , whether it be the PS4, PS3, Vita/PSP, Tablet, TV or PC, that's what's special about it.
