Not a service I'd use, but cool, nonetheless.

Edited by Mr. Kamikaze

Still having trouble wrapping my head around this...if I'm going to spend 30 or more dollars on a game, I kinda just want to own it at that point... =/

Edited by joelalfaro

@rvone: Agreed! The gameplay on DOA suffers because of bad image. They play better than tekken and many other fighting games that our beloved friends at GB love.

(The best Killzone thing is KIllzone War Scenes, even if KZ1 played like shit)

Runs like shit on my wired 150Mbps connection. The input lag makes me not want to play anything that's not turn-based. It's improved a bit since beta first launched, but that slight delay is unbearable. If they can get that figured out, and have a flat subscription fee to play whatever I want, I would be all over this.

@mustarddragon: Uh... thats exactly what they are doing. They most likely have a bunch of server racks emulating/running ps3 hardware which is then streamed to your ps4. You really think they could port over this many games from the cell engine that quickly?

.......so this is Onlive? That "kinda" worked too.

The pricing is beta. That's something Sony need to put out there in clear text, maybe pop a dialogue window up that requires the viewer to read it and do a catchpa repeating "The pricing is beta".

Every time your cursor lingered on the Adventure Time game, I got unduly excited...

I know Alex didn't like it very much, but I thought it was a pretty good Gauntlet clone.

I love this tech, but I am so afraid that we are seeing the death of emulation and actually owning games.

Edited by MB

More like PayStation Now, am I right? Anyone?

Seriously though, the tech is promising and impressive, just need to get those prices in line.

About your trophy conversation, Valve added achievements to Steam after the fact and managed to make their implementation not complete shit.

Dan and Brad on a quick look - most get awesome!

Posted by M_Shini

I'd of hoped one of them would try it out at they're own homes to see how it was in a more realistic environment but its good to see its functional defiantly will be nice to have around, although not sure my Uk internet will be able to handle it if it ever comes over here.

What If they didn't actually port these games? They are just running them on a PS3 and they beam the signal to your PS4. Think about it :)

What? That is what they are doing.

Really wish Brad had ended this with, "So that's PlayStation Now. See you PlayStation Later."

LOL, so brutally true. Lame they're charging so much for old games that no one is buying anymore anyway, they should be happy with anything they can get for them, not make a 30 or 90 day rental to match full current retail price which again, no one was buying anymore anyway.

Goddamn, is Guacamelee really that hard? Everyone on the site complains about that except Alex.

I'm not even good at super hard platformers/action games, and I didn't think it was ever unfair. Certainly no worse than Super Meat Boy, Mega Man, Castlevania, or any number of other games they like.

Maybe they were playing with 360 controllers. I used a Dualshock 3.

Posted by rethla

Whatabout online multiplayer?????

Also if they are so heavily invested in this Gaikai shit why couldnt they just make the console backwards compatible, would it be so expensive? Even PS3 slim can run PS1 games and by that logic it shuldnt be hard to make PS4 run PS2 games. I call it bullshit.

I am not at all interested in the service, but it is definitely interesting to see how well it works. If they let me license my PS3 three games I own for free, I would be one step closer to getting rid of my PS3. But I do not see that happening.

Posted by Fairbrethees

PSA

The ps2 slim is one of the coolest looking consoles out there. Super small with a clean minimalist design. It has an enormous library of games, most of which can be bought online for almost nothing and it is backwards compatible with the ps1. Feels retro, looks modern, fuck this streaming shit and stop being crazy.

Piss poor selection and shady prices. I hope Sony fixes this because it seems like it could be alright.

Posted by mrcraggle

Kind of wish they didn't just rush through this. It was sort of just like, here's a game, it's a little laggy, moves on to next game. Why not test a driving game like Dirt 3 where latency can make you end up in a tree? It'd also be a good reference for me personally as I tried Dirt 3 with OnLive and it was horrible and unplayable with terrible streaming quality to boot. I'd like to have also seen Brad go into the multiplayer of KZ3 rather than the campaign to see how an online game would work while you're streaming in.

So this is a service for crazy people. Got it.

Ok hear me out,

What if they expand the catalog to PS1 and PS2 games and maybe play with the pricing a little bit and you have decent internet. You have friends over and you start talking about old games you used to play and how fun it would be to check that out. So everyone is drinking and having a good time then you pop on PSNOW and pay a couple bucks to play one of those games everyone was talking about. You didnt have to go to a store and break the mood or order a copy off Ebay with there being a strong possibility by the time it showed up nobody would even care to play anymore. Its a very specific use case but otherwise incredibly convenient and cheaper.

Can't wait for shitty US ISPs to start throttling this service. It's always good to have more companies whose services are directly affected by it and will, therefore, oppose the ISPs.

Ok, hear me out. How many "maybes" and "ifs" did you have to throw in there just to make a reasonable argument? Seems like it would be a lot easier for a machine that can read Blu-Ray discs and process insane amounts of information to run the same video games the company's very own predecessor machines could.

And it's not even like this is an issue with cartridges, either. I will go to the grave cursing every console that doesn't include backwards compatibility but still wants to move everyone on to the "next gen" before they're ready.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

I think it's a bad deal.

The pricing is one thing that everyone is harping on, but I think the quality of it what bothers me.

I want it crystal crisp with absolutely no sort of blurryness and artifacts, but I'll admit that it's because I'm nerdy with my video games. I don't care what movies look like and have no problem with how it looks on Netflix sometimes, compared to blu-ray, so I can totally understand that this would be an okay option for some people.

Posted by Sessh

What I would have been interested in, is if you can play online multiplayer in these games. And if so, if you are paired up solely with other people using Now to play or if it actually has cross platform support.

Exactly.

If someone tells me they haven't seen Jurassic Park, I'm not going to get in my car and go to Kmart or look for a second-hand copy on eBay. I'm going to see if I can find it streaming somewhere.

Well, that's if I didn't own a copy on Blu-ray. Because I'm not INSANE.

So when will I be able to use this on PS3 to play PS4 games? ;)

@saturdaynightspecials:

Yeah, I really don't understand when people talk about Guacamelee being too difficult. It seemed to be pretty much in line with other platformers today. It's too bad that everyone on Giant Bomb kind of overlooked it, because it's a great game.

OKAY, I figured out a use case for 4 hours.

If you HAVE to play Ben 10 Omniverse 2, dying to, but you're going to Japan on a business trip for 2 weeks tomorrow. It might make more sense to get the 4 hours. Then you could get another four hours or seven days after that.

Strange how Dan has a completely different opinion of Shadow Fall now that he's at giant bomb, versus his reaction when at gameinformer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH5wzsYogYk

How does he go from "constantly raving about it" and "man that was a really good campaign!" to now suddenly being indifferent. "Well... I guess it controls nice" and "I couldn't tell you anything about it." LIke, what's going on here?
