I'm sure Sony will have some great news and content info for E3.  Word has it if you thought last years Sony E3 was epic then you ain't seen nothing yet.

Re: PlayStation Now Announced, Streams Older PlayStation Titles to Devices [Update]

On the flip side, there is no reason why Home cannot run on PlayStation Now, so there's no reason not to offer it through the service. Anyone who doesn't like Home will simply ignore it, and those who do like it will be very inclined to test it out. Streaming will not solve Home's problems, which are endemic to the code, but it should run more or less as it does now.

 

The bigger question with Now is whether it will work at all anyway. Sony showed off their streaming service on a hard-wired LAN last night, and only gave the media the opportunity to test out some games on it. That leaves big questions about latency and how the service will handle the processor-intesive job of rendering.

 

I'm particularly curious to know if Now will cache runtime libraries and graphics on the client side (your PS3, 4, etc.). Nothing in last night's demonstration answered that question, but it's pretty important if they plan on streaming to low-RAM devices such as tablets and smart phones. People use the Netflix analogy but that doesn't really apply here. All Netflix does is run a program, essentially in one direction, with a five-minute data buffer and then send the digital stream to the end user. There's a world of difference between that and running emulation (which is processor intensive) and rendering (which is processor intensive) and sending that signal downstream in packets while simultaneously taking feedback from the end user (which is bandwidth intensive).

 

I've had lag trying to fast forward past commercials with Comcast On Demand. PlayStation Now is significantly more demanding. I think if anyone can figure it out, it is Sony, because after all these years of running PlayStation Home, they've got some experience running both emulation and real-time gaming in a streaming environment.

Here is the beta sign up for Playstation Now  http://us.playstation.com/playstationnow/

 

Enjoy and good luck!


That is not a beta sign up. That's a "first to know" list for information about the service. There are NO sign ups right now. Also to the newbies, posting messages to Sony on here won't wrok either. Sit back and wait until later this month. Probably a week and a half from now there'll be news.

 

Don't fall for any of the scams out there proporting to give you access for doing things like surveys and such. It's not true.

No where does it say that is a sign up for the beta.  Don't deceive people in thinking it is.   You are guessing.
