PS Now has potential

#1 Posted by tendoboy1984 (156 posts) -

I'm very excited for this PlayStation Now service. Being able to pay a monthly fee and get instant access to dozens of games is something I've always wanted. It's like Netflix and GameFly put together. I'm surprised Microsoft hasn't done something similar, considering they are constantly bragging about cloud computing.

I am really looking forward to it

I still highly doubt it will be worth paying for on top of PS+. I wonder how many games will be on PS Now that are or have been PS+ titles. I am still wondering what the price will be for single game rentals, though. That's something I could be interested in for the right price.

I have a PS3, couldn't careless about this service, and my Internet does not allow me to participate anyway.

I'm intrigued by it. I got a beta invite, but still waiting for anything related to it. I know its confidential but I'm excited to see if its worth it.

What I meant was, this service allows you to stream PS3 game onto your PS4, I have no need for it as I own a PS3. Also some people aren't as lucky as you with unlimited bandwidth and super fast speed. So thanks but I'll have to pass.

It looks pretty sweet but I just don't get enough time to justify the monthly charges. If I had more free time it's definitely something I'd like to try but will wait to see how reliable the service proves to be before taking the plunge.

Well that's my point, it is made for the PS4 in mind. It also sucks you don't have the connection
