The PlayStation Now private beta for PS4 has finally begun, and it surely didn’t take long for it to end up on video.
awesome,cant wait for more news!
Loading into the App is much much faster. Launching into a game is also faster than PS3. Id say PS Now on the PS4 is very very usable. Where as on the PS3 im not sure i would ever use it because its just too slow. My PS3 in generall feels way to slow anymore when compared to my PS4. Especially if they continue to improve on speed and stability, and put out a huge library of games.. Sony should hit a gold mine. This *should* become the netflix of gaming. I'm digging this :D fantastic job sony. **EXTRA** Something really interesting/ weird. If you press the PS Button you can access the XMB Menu... Yes your PS3 XMB Menu on the PS4.(its only a partial XMB) but it has your PS3 Friends list and messages. For example i recently accepted a friend invite on my PS4, but since Messages and invites done sync up between Ps3 and PS4 when im using PS Now and access the XMB i can accept that friend invite on my PS3 now. Very weird stuff
I'm running it wireless right now and it's smooth as butter, haven't had any of the random cutoffs or odd glitch like ps3 version. That's the thing about betas though, they're meant to improve a product :p I noticed that about the XMB too. Plus whatever game you play on it shows up on the main PS4 menu so you can go into it instantly without loading the beta app first, I thought that was cool.
I got the code for PS4 PS Now earlier today and will download it soon. Never did get around to trying it on my PS3 though, but will attempt to use it on my PS4 with my slow connection to see if it even works.
how was it? was it ok? thanks.
How do Multi player games run?
Did the lack of YouTube app AND Netflix Dolby Digital fixed?
I dont use Netflix but I fixed my Youtube problem with Chromecast which works great. P.S Dang communists banned Netflix in Spain to protect one of their company's. So jealous that France and Germany have access to it.
Played overlord on a wired connection. 1 second delay in control inputs
Is that good?
Thats fine with me, ill be using now to experience single player games that I didnt get a chance to play while I had PS3
It's not half bad in multiplayer either :) Also I don't get anywhere near a 1 second delay. In fact it's barely noticeable. (wired)
Same for me, and about half second delay in Riptide. Totally unacceptable for a fibre optic connection. Hope PS4 will be better.
its a beta so this is to be known and expected. holy crap i feel like georgenoob with those disagrees
I would like it much better if the first page was like Cover Flow from iTunes. Then when clicking All Games, you get the same thing, but with box art, instead of just an image.
Slick? I think not
I got my code for the Beta! My only complaint about it so far is the slow response time (which isnt that bad after around 15-20 min of playing) I hope you guys get a code too!
Got the code for my PS4 today. I'm going to try it out in a few minutes and compare it to my PS3 version...can't wait for the PS Vita Beta to hit next!
My complaint is that rented games stick to the ps4's dashboard. And as of now voice commands don't work for the rented games or the app. We need folders Sony!
Sign me up, I sold my PS3 so I could get PS4 (cash strapped lol), and I wouldn't mind paying up to $20 per month for access to all the games :)
That's a bit steep unless streaming is flawless and the library huge.
I mean't theoretically, I would pay $20 per month, but the service has to be up to scratch and 'All' the games!!! Lol disagrees for personal choice hahaha...N4G I love you!! People complaining about UI and other nitpicking stuff? Guess what? > 'IT'S IN BETA' <
I just realized - isn't this service going live in less than a month?
It's launching this fall I believe.
Did it get delayed?
Actually it's still launching this summer. I was thinking about the TV version launching this fall I believe. Sorry about that.
I really don't like the games they are showing.
Streaming as tremendous amount of latency, input lag and compression, really best off getting an actual PS3
It's called a beta for a reason.
Not from my experience with PS Now on BOTH PS3/PS4. And this is coming from someone who had lots of problems with the Killzone 2 controller input lag issues (as well as the same issue just less of it with KZ3).
Probably your internet connection mine is working perfect actually surprised how good it runs haven't had a chance to try on the ps4 yet will tonight.
AAAHHHHH I don't want to see it!! I want to be surprised..
I didn't get a code for either. Wonder what their criteria was for it. Anybody have an idea?
Seriously what is the point of this ? You may as well have kept your PS3's. I never owned a PS3 and there is no way i am renting these games. I would rather just get a PS3 and buy the games so i can keep them for however long i feel like it. It just seems like a waste of money.
I think the complete opposite I know there are ppl who want the physical disk but if you are a gamer that have the time to beat a game in 7 days why but a game for $60 beat it in a week then have to trade it in when you can rent for a week beat the game and move on. @CanadianTurtle your just trolling now cause you keep making it seem like it will be laggy yet in the other post me and about 3 other ppl in the beta confirmed it is not I was able to play a game with the move with no lag at all unless they are trying different things in different areas I would have to say if you experience lag like my comment above it may be your connection idk all I can say it works fine and I think it will do really well when it comes out.
But i think more people would rather keep their games forever then just rent them for a bit. Also, it's not like PS3 games cost that much anymore, new ones maybe, but most games you can get cheap. In a few years time PS3 games will cost just as much as PS2 games cost now.
Is there any chance you'll be able to download the games instead of streaming them? I don't trust this whole video game streaming idea. I think we might get a laggy experience.
Just noticed my code came in an email today. Think I'll give it a whirl here in a little bit. Are they the same test games as the PS3?
Is there still screen tearing with the games using PS4? I know it was bad using PS3. Haven't tried it yet so just curious.
Looks better than before. I hope there's a Netflix like subscription service for this.
I received my beta code yesterday. Tried out papo & yo on ps4 ps now beta and it is definitely a more polished experience than the ps3. The ps3 ps now beta has definitely also come a long way but trying it on the ps4 is buttery smooth and quicker.
Wish i got it :(
