MP1st - E3 2014 is just around the corner, and sadly, I won’t be going this year.
It's a decent opinion piece, but I'm not sure how feasible it is. It also kinda makes the journalists out there almost irrelevant as middle men.
Not really. The experience can only go so far as a stream; there still needs to be someone there to give it that element that makes it something a human has experienced, rather than just heard about.
I wrote an article linking Gaikai with PS Home months ago but it a different way. This article brings up another great way Gaikai could be used with Home. GC article: Could PS Home be on PS4 and powered by Gaikai? http://www.gamingcapacity.c...
Well, I aint going either
It would be nice to do it with PS Now...just got my PS Now code voucher today for my PS4 & I must say I was very impressed..the couple of games I tried played extremely well as if I was playing the disc in my PS3.
I have had the exact same experience, and I can tell this service will rock when it comes out. They will get many subscribers if they price it right.
it sucks that e3 show floor won't be at ps home this year. I always like going there during this time to get done prizes
I always enjoyed the E3 spaces in Home, it felt organized, and gave good info.
Convenience is PS Now's killer feature! Gotta hold off on buying PS3 games for now. Which would be better for getting the bang for your gaming buck ...PS Plus or PS Now?
To be honest, just having a ps3 and preowned games!
Even though I know its just a beta I was dissapointed with the list of games :( in PS Now. It did work well though and they even replicate trophy/xmb from the ps3 on the PS4. But then again I have 50 down 25 up connection so idk how well the service will be for the bandwidth deficient.
I have a 7mb download speed, 1 up.. Though my speed tests when its good working at it's best are 6.5 down. When I did the connection test it said I could stream at the highest quality. Though I doubt I'm getting the highest quality. It did work just fine for me though. Anything below that and I'd worry about not being able to use it. I did have 1 time were it said my connection wasn't good enough to stream the game. Probably dropped into the 5mb range for a short time.
What i am wondering about PlayStation Now service is that the games being offered. Will they only have PS3 games? Will they also offer PS1 and PS2 games? Also, I think it would be nice if they also offer PS4 games. They could release PS4 games after some time on the market. I don't think they will ever release a game at the same time it is out, but just like Instant Game collection, they could make them available after 6 months or so. This would improve a lot the value of PS Now, although it might depend of pricing and PS Plus integration. However, having recent games being offered it could be great for people that for some reason didn't buy the game, but are willing to play it on PS Now, which could make them potential costumer for sequels or games of the same genre. Also, will they support DualSHock 4? I get that DualShock 3 is the best option for PS1-PS3 games, but it would be great to have the option at least. (but maybe they won't so they don't have to reprogram the game for it).
I'm just going to watch the E3 event from the app they just released on the PS4 lol.
