PlayStation Now Beta Leaks Detail Games and Connection Requirements
With the PlayStation Now Beta currently underway, some participants are leaking out details even while under NDA.
According to a Beta user on NeoGAF, the list of games available to play through the beta include:
Sony First Party titles:
- Killzone 3
- Shadow of the Colossus
Third Party titles:
- Papo & Yo
- Darksiders II
- MX vs. ATV: Alive
- Disgaea 4
- Ninja Gaiden 3
Games playable alongside the service’s announcement such as The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls are notably absent from the beta.
According to a Gamefaqs user currently participating in the beta, PlayStation Now runs well on his internet connection with a download speed of 5 mbps and upload speed of 1 mbps.
“I have some craptacular internet (for some reason my router decided to change nat2 to nat3)
So for even running it on my internet and still be playable is a big plus. Also just came back from my friendâ€™s house where i tested it there as well.
At its worseâ€¦ You can see some compression (i.e. My connection) at my friendâ€™s house with proper working internet. It looks exactly like running it off the disc.”
When playing online the same user confirmed that he was able to play Dead or Alive 5 without trouble.
“Just got done playing Dead or Alive 5 against someone over the internet and there was no problem with the other guy being able to kick my ass a few times :P”
The user posted a video of booting up PlayStation Now that was eventually taken down afterward. The video showed that PlayStation Now will run on a UI similar to the PlayStation 4’s store.
PlayStation Now is expected to launch this Summer for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, as well as Sony branded televisions and tablet devices.
In the meantime, read about why PlayStation Now is important for the future of gaming.
