You do realize you cannot stream a game on PSNow without latency issues even if you're in the same room. How do you expect to get a good connection from anywhere else aside from the same network? Even having the best internet won't save you from latency because it all depends on location in case you didn't know that, genius. Nvidia is working on something called Nvidia grid... ever heard of it? Probably not based off your assumption that you can only play your games a short distance from my PC. The shield can stream images at 1080p natively and can also send it to another tv in the house and stream it through there at full 1080p with virtually no latency. Can PSNow do that? Absolutely not. As a matter of fact you are going to have to pay for that service as a seperate fee alongside PS+ and then the games themselves again. Not to mention if your internet blows you need to pay up to your ISP for some more bandwidth that won't help due to your location. Oh and it can only stream at 720p and there was a demo showing how bad the latency is even in the same room. It's not that noticeable but it was there. That's bad when it struggle in the same room. X'D

Yes. Streaming at a short distance from your computer is better than having streaming ps3 games from anywhere at any internet connection.

Makes Sony's streaming service look like a joke. X'D

This streaming sounds pretty interesting at least in theory, but add few bucks and you can build another system for your living room. Yeah sure you get the controller and screen to play it as handheld too, but I don't do that. My 3ds is collecting dust right now, well not literally because I take care of my stuff.


G-sync, yeah if the screens that have it isn't really that much expensive than ones without it. And also depends how well and often games will be Nvidia optimized in the future now that consoles have AMD technology in them. I kind of quietly hope Nvidia will crank up PC gaming a notch and get developers behind their products and make some really nice optimized PC games and really give consoles run for their money.

@Excalibus He and Peter Brown do a great job. Not a lot of fat in their deliveries. On point and fact based. It's refreshing.
