Bring the Jak trilogy AND Jak X and I'll buy into it.

PS Now beta for me is perfectly fine (UK). I was pleasantly surprised how responsive it was an i wasn't getting any delays. Mind you I use my PS4 on wifi so its not hard wired.

I get about 12-23mb download, 4-9 mb upload on the ps4.

The game selection in the beta however is pretty piss poor so im not playin it at all now. Compared to the 100+ games on the PS now US store I would prefer to be testing God of War an Uncharted.

Yeah i agree, there are a few good games but you want to test it on the big ones like Uncharted and such. Told Sony that in the feedback!

The biggest problem for me is the compression required to make the game reaponsive...way too much tearing and fuzziness on a 15 mbps connection. Google will eventually force speeds up and prices down, but the wait continues. Still new tech and it isnt being forced. Sony is not about to force it until it is truly ready...they cant afford it to be a cause of playstations demise.

Yeah 15 might not be good. It works flawlessly on my 60 mbps connection

Looks the faster the better and of course you location too. On fiber distance is less of an issue of course but it's still good for a Beta but for the game selection.

Is PS Now still in Beta in the states? Or has it launched over there?

CernaML1181d ago

Officially launched in US.

Ah ok, thanks. Hopefully they will announce a full EU launch around E3 time.
