I rented Twisted Metal on it last week. It works VERY well surprisingly however I am plugged in directly to ethernet and I have a 100 Megabit connection.  ;)

 

The only thing that will slow down PS Now from taking off though is the selection of games and the pricing is awful. 

 

No doubt about the pricing its gotta be fixed soon.

 

However, Sony certainly is ahead of the curve here with streaming games. Much how netflix got rid of all the movie rental places game streaming could do the same to game stop. That is years down the road though, once they get the rights, money, and tech up to par its bound to take off.

I agree, I'm just glad they've built such a service that even works this well. When I read they bought Gaikai all those years back I was pretty excited and it's great to see what a polished job they've done with it.

 

Hopefully they lower those prices or do a subscription service sooner than later though because it's getting a lot of bad press from message board folk and I can't say I blame them for complaining really.

The Share Play feature will be limited to one hour at a time btw.

 

I read that too, however you can use it unlimited times. So once the hour is done, the person's PS4 you're connected to will need to re-establish the connection.

 

Not a terrible trade off, IMO.

Yea, as time goes on the pricing will get better. Once they get the rights from the game makers to do this at a reasonable price they can pass on the savings. The biggest thing is no inventory is needed everything is digital so down the line they will be able to offer much better pricing, or at least in theory they should be able to.

Call them up? If there is one thing you learn over the years better to trust your memory than a business's when it comes to your own money.

Anyone download the P.T. demo aka "Playable Teaser" this weekend from PSN? It's for the upcoming Silent Hill game. Apparently it's pretty [expletive]ing scary. Downloaded it last night, but I was like I'll just wait until tomorrow when it's nice and sunny. About to fire it up.

Kinda related/sidenote ish... Still haven't played Outlast since the day it was a free PS+ game and downloaded it. Got kinda spooked and I was like NOPE.

Makes sense.

I hope in the near future we can actually buy those PS1, ps2 and ps3 games on the PS now instead of renting it. I dont mind paying 20 bucks to keep some of the old games on my ps4.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Apparently a DDoS hit PSN early this morning.

Some dbag hackers claim they did it on Twitter.

PSN is down. No timetable by Sony as to when it'll be back up and running.

^ That's been happening on Steam as well. A lot of people complaining about dota2 servers going down. I played just fine yesterday though.

Would anyone here have paid more than $400 for their PS4 if it had better hardware?

Like if ALL games were able to run at 1080p and 60 or 120 frames(godly but asking for too much lol) per second while still looking stunning.

Currently devs have to make trade offs, like they can do native 1080p but only give you 30 fps(Destiny), or give you a fluid 60 fps, but only 900p like Battlefield 4. Other visual sacrifices have to be made as well, like lighting/weather effects, to reach desired specs.

I'm pretty satisfied myself with how games look currently, BF4(my only game) is stunning visually. But I would have paid more(like $100 more maybe) for say like an extra 20 or 25 percent horsepower.

As devs get better at developing games for the PS4 and better utilize what's available to them things should get better tho.

Just wish that 1080p and 60fps were the default cor ALL games.

Just something I was thinking about earlier today haha

^Give it time. Compare 360/PS3 games from the first year to now and it's night and day.

 

Good thing is Sony has a ton of 1st party studios so you're going to see the power of the PS4 taken full advantage of sooner than later.

 

The Order is one example......
