Red Dead Redemption 2 On PS Now Appears To Be Service's First Download-Only Game

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on PS Now, but it appears that you can only access the game via download, not streaming.

The story is too old to be commented.

I wouldn't want to stream this game at all.

This is actually one of the reasons that GTA IV was removed from the service. The streaming was causing game breaking problems so it was pulled and never returned.

That's just not true. It left when it was supposed to leave.

Streaming games isn't 100% ready yet everyone would need at least FTTC Internet it's OK for simpler games though

Dont think the game matters its all internet dependent. I have as much lag and resolution scaling on rainbow 6 as ive had on something like metal slug 3.

The game doesn't matter, it's literally just sending video and input data. The game itself is being ran on a virtual ps4 in a server completely independent of your bandwidth. Playing tetris or playing RDR2 is all the same to your internet. It's likely due to the size of the install, RDR2 is massive and they'd probably just prefer to keep that space free for other games

Streaming sucks anyway.
