Sony has begun sending invitations to try PlayStation Now , the Sony service of ‘cloud gaming’ with which for example will offer compatibility with older platforms. A long-awaited PlayStation 4 possibility but we will not have to wait to enjoy.
The good thing is that the invention is moving. PlayStation Now is now available as a closed beta , for which Sony has begun sending invitations to certain users to begin to test the application. For now only in the U.S. , and we assume that the U.S. market will be the first to be publicly available streaming service.
According to neogaf user who posted the invitation sent by the manufacturer recommends testing Sony PS Now a PS3 to a wired connection with a bandwidth of 5 Mbps or more. They do not mention anything about PS4 or PS Vita , we mean devices that come into play later once they have perfected the software in the past generation.
PlayStation Now go ahead and continue running as one of the most interesting features of PlayStation 4, I remember losing backward compatibility with other Sony platforms. But is not the whole mountain oregano and detail of the service is still polishing. Users need to have defined the cost of service (for example if you charge for games that already have PS3, which seems to be yes and is raising much debate) or its final performance (it will offer a similar gaming experience local ? Our first impressions are quite positive but with room for improvement), but must also take into account the difficulty of implementing a software of this type and, of course, that Now is a feature of the future will continue to grow in coming years .
