:^/ Streaming 1080p video data at sixty frames per second required the bandwidth of cable television, which we don't have. We have DSL here. Then there's the issue of lag. If your input takes time to reach the server, then the feedback in the video takes time to reach you, it can seriously effect gameplay, I would guess. For some of them it would be no big deal, but for anything requiring split-second reaction time, the delay could render it uplayable.
I also don't like the idea of a recurring monthly expense instead of a one-time purchase.
The technology is fascinating, though. We'll see how it does.
If anyone at Sony is reading this, I would love to be considered for the Playstation Now beta. I'm a 26 yo male in the Chicago area with a purported 50mbps down/ 5mbps up. I own PS3, PS4, PSVita and a Sony Bravia TV.
Couldn't hurt to try!
LOL I found it! I remember suggesting the ability to access Home on other Devices back in Sept of 2012 and I found the [thread]
I know Home was not offered in the Playstation Now service BUT this is exactly what I had in mind back then, the ability to stream Sony content from other devices.
PS Now is affected by your bandwidth and net connection. If youre playing (streaming) a game from PS Now, and your bandwidth or connection drops...your resolution and framerate will drop too.
Now...imagine how THAT would affect Home. I really dont see Home being a part of PS Now, tbh.
Also...it was confirmed that there would be a one time subscription fee OR you can rent the games for one flat fee. Doesnt matter if you already bought them on older consoles or have them on disc, they will not discount you or let you have em for free. You WILL have to pay again, for all those games you previously bought.
Keep that in mind, folks.
