5 Ways Playstation Now Can Win the War

When Sony officially unveiled their Gaikai streaming service as Playstation Now I, was excited to say the least. Yes, I know there will be technical limitations like input lag and a few bumps in the road before I can stream Jumping Flash to my phone while I’m waiting at the DMV, but I’m optimistic. I felt now would be a good time to share my positive outlook, along with a few of my deepest wishes for Sony's new service.

Only one way though...just be itself.

Win the war?

Nope.

Be a useful side-utility that lets people rent games for cheaper than their local videostore?

Yep.

Playstation Now.
Sounds like such a fabulous concept.

Stream ps3 games over the internet in real time as if you had a ps3 in your room.
Sounds awesome.

It's a pity that the demonstrated lag, even with a top notch internet connection is creating so many problems.

Hope they work out the lag issue.
Really do.

PS Now is the future but mid-term at best, it would take about 3 years at the minimum for it to be a thing, in the short term, offering PS2 classics which were sorely missing on the PS3 as downloadable PSN titles would make more money and help more in beating microsoft. I'm sure building a PS2 emulator wouldn't be as hard as it was on the PS3 because of much more powerful hardware

Have you heard anything from what Sony said? BC is NOT sony's main focus.

Of course they're going to say that. They don't want the focus of Playstation Now to become BC, they want it to be seen as a service that provides content to a multitude of devices. They want to capture the casuals, those that wouldn't commit to a console but may just hop in to check it out from time to time.

But just for a moment sit back and consider your statement. Let's look at the reality and not how Sony wants to brand this service. It will have a library of PS3/PS2/PS1 games ... So yes, Sony have said they're not focusing on BC, but can you see the obvious too?

The war on...what? OnLive? Well I would bet its going to be better than OnLive.

There is a lot of classic games wIthin Sony's library with a lot of appeal for different types of gamers. All this to be accessible through Sony media products. I think this will have a huge impact on general tv & tablet gaming.
