Pocket Lint - PlayStation Now: The future of gaming, the death of the console as we know it?

Pocket Lint - Welcome to the modern world. Gone are the days when popping to Blockbuster to grab a DVD was commonplace Friday night practice. Indeed disc-based formats could be on a slippery slope, even for gaming if PlayStation Now has anything to do with it.

Jesus Christ....

Last killer was Mobile gaming.

Mobile already won, why do you think the PS4 only sold like 3 consoles. Angry Birds totally took over and killed consoles as we know it. Why do think they charge like $40 for something on consoles that costs like $3 on your phone. Lmao

And for people that are tone deaf, yeah, that was dripping with sarcasm. lol

You think the doom and gloom of consoles is impressive, you should check out the world wide apocalyptic prophecies that I have survived in the last 5 years. I made it through the last day of the world so many times, I have decided to sit out the next couple of apocalypses.

Netflix hasn't killed Movie Theaters. Hasn't killed Blu Rays, TV broadcasts, etc. Why would PS Now kill consoles? It's just another OPTION for people to play games. Also, the service is for OLD games, not new. So it's actually more like how Movies go from theater, to DVD/BR.

Tell me when everyone gets Japan level internet. Until then hell no.

I had 100mb download in Japan. It doesn't go that fast abroad?

annus1679d ago

Just because it does go that fast elsewhere doesn't mean everyone comes even close to that speed.

It's being reported that it's 5MB (not Mb) which means you will need at MINIMUM 40Mb connection. So many people have way under that, unless it's really just a journalist screwing it up and it really is 5Mb, in which case I would think most people who game online would reach that.

This is obviously the end of consoles. Now that 4k TVs are out people are going to be looking for lower resolution artifacted laggy media to play on them.

I need to stop coming to N4G this site just gets more and more ridiculous with the articles that get posted.

Joe9131679d ago

I agree they need to stop with the opinion articles
