I’ve played quite a few games through PS Now on my laptop even though I have a PS5. Stuff like XCOM and Killzone. It works alright on my internet.

I’ve tried PS Now myself. I subscribed when Metal Gear Solid 4 came out on the service and honestly it works alright, the big problem is that it feels way less robust compared to something like xCloud in terms of latency and the mixed bag in terms of streaming quality (and I have pretty damn good internet) and I personally think the constant rotation of games after such short periods of time makes it harder to really invest in the library as a whole, especially the first party PlayStation stuff and PlayStation exclusives. I felt like I was on a really fast timer when it came to playing MGS4 on PC although I think it’s still up on Now for PS4/PS5?

Of course they are, this is the reason that many friends have a pc and even so a playstation console, to play their exclusives, the same ones who see no reason to have an xbox.

Tried streaming and it didn’t work well. It’s a good service if you have a PS4/5 to download to though.

Look at all that free money Sony is leaving on the ground by not having a native PS5/PC version of Bloodborne out

@Stragen8 Why do most people say that Uncharted 2 was the best Uncharted for the most part? For me I think Uncharted 3 was the best. The Uncharted games after 2 are far more advanced than 2.

not surprising since pc players been begging for bloodborne before the game even came out lol

I just find it so strange they still don’t have macOS client for PS Now. Should be a big market with MacBook owners considering they aren’t always that powerful and not a lot of games for macOS. Soon even xCloud will support macOS through the browser.
The strangest part is maybe that GaiKai that they bought to build PS Now were primarily focused on the Mac market, so the tech has always been there.

@Snake_V5 Uncharted 2 for its time was the apex of the series. 3 was more advanced but for me and most others, It didn’t hit the same way. still a solid uncharted but in my opinion it just wasn’t as memorable.

Good. Then as I’ve often said, utilise PSNow and stop giving them native copies. Treat the customers who made your platform a success all these years as first class citizens.
If the PC crowd really want to play PlayStation games they’ll use it or go without.
That’s how I’d handle the situation, everybody wins.
Or if you keep giving PC native copies then risk losing console buyers in favour of PC since then they’ll have third party games, native PlayStation exclusives and GamePass.

I like psnow. It really tickles my fancy.

I’m surprised that, for every gamepass article or comment, no one counters with psnow, even though it came out first.

@GADG3Tx87 Nah, would rather the exclusive pls
17Stragen83 days ago
@Snake_V5 Im not sure if you played each of them on release or in the collection pack, but for me, I played each at release and Uncharted 2 was such a step up over U1 and blew so many other games of that era out of the water, especially for action/adventure and storytelling. (Even during the era of tacked on multiplayer, U2’s was fantastic!)
U3 had better set pieces and graphics and multiplayer. But I felt like the story was a lot more muddy and all over the place. I was overhyped at the time and was really disappointed by it. It wasn’t as big of a jump like U1 to U2 was and the series was coming off of this stellar reputation from U2. For me U2 was the pinnacle of the series. (U4 just seemed to drag a bit once you get to the island)

@ThroughTheIris56 haha I was waiting for someone to say that. I never played the Crash games and only a bit of Jax and Daxter
19ThroughTheIris563 days ago
@Stragen8 Lol, I definitely recommend them, as well as Crash 4.

I never tried streaming PSNow PS4 games but I tried Xcloud on My PC and Halo 5 runs like absolute poop so I would hope its much better then that but I figure they’re probably both pretty bad at the higher end games, Xbox 360 games ran fine but streaming has a long way to go

@GADG3Tx87 Are the PS consoles really so bad that no one would play them if it weren’t for the exclusives?

@Subsided The issue at lot of time with cloud gaming is your actual location. I can Stadia and xCloud to run perfectly, but GeForce Now runs like straight dog poop for me.
Also xCloud for PC is still in beta, so it probably doesn’t run as well as it does on Android

@Floki even on beta I’d imagine it’s still same servers but ya I certainly hope it gets better, but I’m in Canada and my internet speeds are rock solid

Just bring Bloodborne to PS5 and it’ll be one of the most played games there, too!
25AlienigenX3 days ago
Understandable, everybody needs to play Bloodborne.
26Shinnok7893 days ago
How about a proper Remaster of Bloodborne for PS5 and PC? That would really break the charts.
Btw, Bloodborne on PS Now doesn’t contain the Old Hunters DLC, nor can you play it separately… practically a very good, very well made piece of the game is missing.
This is where Sony shows they don’t much care for this service, which is too bad, as it can have a lot of potential, especially given the PS5 stock and overall chip shortages that won’t go away any time soon… this would be a very good time to take some prosumer decisions, invest heavily in PS Now to make it extremely appealing, come up with very good deals and service plans to get people to mass towards it…
