In an interview with Digital Spy SCEE’s UK managing director Fergal Gara has said that gamers in the United Kingdom will be amongst the first to get their hands on PlayStation Now, the game streaming service.
Good. Al through I won't be playing it on my net connection, get a launch day PS3 anyway. Edit: We've got one of the best in Europe......I've only been waiting four years for my green cabinet to go live for fiber......Half my road got it 4 years ago, I'm at the end of the exchange.
Don't even get me started! I moved house and asked Virgin if i could take my services, which they said yes to. Only to find out once i had moved in and was told i couldn't go with them. So i shop round and talktalk say they can give me speeds of 80mbs fibre. Great get it installed and it runs at like 10mbs. Turns out its not true fibre. Its fibre to the cabinet then copper the rest of the way. That turned out to be 1.2km of copper!! If i had known i literally wouldn't have moved there. My phones internet is literally faster LOL OT i am really looking forward to trying this but i don't hold out high hopes for my net connection. They recommend 5mbs down but i imagine in real world it will need more.
talk talk *shudders* THEY ARE THE WORST SERVICE PROVDER for the sake of your sanity leave them as soon as you can as everything with talk talk is poor.
@Mikelarry I will be leaving them asap. They have kindly informed me that because my services are now live (a matter of a couple days) i will be charged the early disconnection fee. Apparently there is no cooling of period! They are the most useless, unhelpful rude tw*ts i have ever dealt with. It has made me realise just how good Virgin were. I only went with them for there supposed "fast fibre" and took a hit on there rubbish TV channels. If i'm gonna have slow internet i'd rather go with Sky and have slow internet and decent TV. Avoid talktalk like the frikkin plague guys! You sound like you speak from experience?
Check out EE. Have a look on there website shows you if they have Fiber in your area and expected speeds you should get. Am on Virgin my self by a friend of mine is on EE.
@ madderz, legally there has to be at least a 14 day cooling off period, this is the law, dont let them fool you into parting with your money, if you have already paid then seek legal advice.
152mb i have,but i usually get over 160-170
Every month i go to them they tell me they will do it in our territory in a specific date , when that date come they schedule another one after few months. Now they told me to wait until the end of the year to get it which is annoying as hell and still not sure the will do it for sure or not . I'm living in glasgow , thought it would be much better then other places but it turns out it's worst then my previous apartment xP .
LOL they put my cabinet in a year ago and I was hoping it would be soon. Obviously not probably got another 3 years like u
Not surprised , i expect France to have it way after ... it's just a mess of many highs , but also many lows , there for the net .
Would it include Ireland then? I hope so :)
Haha normally when Ireland is thrown in to the mix when big companys refer to the "UK" it annoys me because it shows ignorance to the political climate and history of it all, but this is one of those times were I PRAY (to the flying spaghetti monster of course) that when they say the UK they also mean Republic of Ireland :P
haha well if it does include Ireland i hope yuo stop you ways in future and embrace. you can have it one way or the other :)
I hope they mean that too, and considering they can't bring it to Northern Ireland and exclude the Republic for no good reason, I'm betting we'll all be grouped in together. It is a bit annoying to be grouped as "UK", when it doesn't take much to say UK and Ireland.
It's a shame as Portugal has a great fiber optic infrastructure and 3 ISP's all providing good pricing plans one of them being Vodafone who's investing really big bucks in Portugal and its already paying of as they have quite a lot of Portuguese market share now. The lowest connection those 3 Portuguese ISP's have is 50Mb/5Mb which is for now the most common but I think enough for PS Now, but lots of homes (including mine) have 100Mb/10Mb leaving the higher speeds usually subscribed by business people. One can only hope that the delay is short when getting the service available to all EU countries.
Minimum of 5Mbps and 12Mbps is recommended for highest quality. I think Portugal is settled if servers are closeby with low latency.
And as many other services in the PSN store it will never come to Austria. We don't even have music unlimited.. It sucks..
my connection sucks and theres no fibre optics on my street yet sigh hopefully they make a 4g psvita
Thanks, but I'll pass. I've played all I need last gen. Didn't miss anything that warrants me spending money on a service that won't play the games as well as they would on the original console.
Same (except for tekken which will come to ps4 eventually) but i would love to try this new service which i have but can't use it because of the slow network. This service looks sooo promising. They may be able to make a better performance then the ps3 . Just a guess :P . If it's like an emulator then it's possible. Imagine you are outside in a coffee shop , you could play games in there with only carrying controllers lol . Pretty awesome. Same with going to friends that don't have any console :P .
i hear you but i think this will give me a chance to play games i initially wasn't interested in my scenario is this, i'm bored have no games to play, what do i do? check out PS now, maybe find a hidden gem
How about the Netherlands? We defeated Spain yesterday, we deserve it! ;)
As good a reason as any :)
You didn't defeat Spain - you destroyed Spain! :-D
This will take forever to roll out on the entire European terrietories. Forever+infinity for Asia.
I notice PlayStation usually group Ireland in with the UK so that's good.
UK, Sony are not Europe ..so we dont care, bring to the canonical european countries...or basically dont bring at all PS now is a faIL service and you ll see it
I think Sony should also consider Portugal, seeing as it´s the closest country to USA in Europe, and it´s also Sony´s best market(percentage) in Europe.
ah america. is you want crappy over priced internet. you come to the right place!
Yup. Paying at least a 100$ for 50Mbs.
i kinda new this was the case already but its good to see it confirmed by someone at sony
They need to intruduce it at the same time everywhere. Im so tired of waiting. Here in The Netherlands we will probably need to wait like another year or so, just like the XBOX One still hasn't launched here yet. It's like Microsoft does everything to lose the entire marked here, they weren't big here to begin with. Anyway, why doesn't Sony just invest a bit more money and just bring PS Now to all territories at the same time? It would be a lot more userfriendly.
Kudos to them.... Oh! Yeah! (°! °)
$65 a month for 50 mb fiber. Lucky me. Too bad I live in the sticks in Alabama and this will NEVER be available to me.
Im excited for this service, I would have really liked to have got in the beta but living in the uk makes that impossible, I get 152mbs fibre optic from virgin, I have more than enough to get this to run smoothly, it just makes me sad that I cant.
