PlayStation Now Beta Video Shows Lag on 100MB Connection

The current beta phase for Sony’s Cloud-based service is experiencing some issues.

Posted By | On 23rd, May. 2014 Under News


PlayStation Now is currently in the closed beta stage for PS4 owners, giving them an opportunity to sample Gaikai-powered service. This allows one to play PS3 and Vita titles through the magic of Cloud-based game streaming, thus granting backwards compatibility to the PS4.

Of course, while Sony recommended a 5 MBps connection to users for streaming, one beta tester recently released a video that showed significant lag at some points. Check it out above to also get an idea of how long games take to load on PS Now. Interestingly, there’s a warning that the tester’s 100MB connection isn’t enough to handle PS Now’s loads.

Then again, this is only the beta stage. Things can, and very often do, improve in the full release. Stay tuned for more information on PlayStation Now, especially as Sony is set to reveal the games that will launch for it, and let us know your thoughts on the video in the comments.

    LOL Sony trying to do Cloud LMFAO!!!

    • ps4lol

      The person in the video didn’t have the bandwidth or latency to handle the connection. Lag can’t magically be erased in “the cloud” no matter what company tries it.

      Delusional, malicious, stupid, and constantly wrong like a typical microsoft fanboy shill.

      Sony shills flustered their POWER OF THE BUTT don’t work.

      Guess what works. Emulation.
      Where can you only get emulation where you can make past games look and play better? PC
      PC? PC is the master race :^)

      Mental illness, time for your pills.

      Another typical dumb, delusional, malicious, constantly wrong microsoft fanboy that has no clue about technology or sales, just feces flinging and screaming like an imbecile.

      Another deranged, malicious, delusional, worthless, constantly wrong microsoft fanboy having a meltdown because his favorite plastic toy is overpriced, underpowered, and not favored by developers.

      Demented, delusional, constantly WRONG, dumb, hypocritical, worthless, conspiracy theorist, dumb as rocks Microsoft fanboy is angry that PS4 is significantly more powerful, has more developer support, and outselling Xbox almost 2:1 globally. Keep crying and having meltdowns over the facts.

      You sound upset that PS4 has more powerful hardware, more developer support, and is outselling Xbox by ~3 million. Keep shilling and crying while everyone else ignores you and buys more PS4s.

      It’s good to know you’re completely wrong and raging against facts and reality, and nothing you say will happen. I’m constantly right, you’re constantly dumb and wrong.

      You don’t understand business, sales, or hardware specs, all you can do is fling feces and scream “XBOX WON!!1” like a rabid animal. Microsoft fanboy shills don’t love their console they just hate the success of others.

      PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. Sony still has a large number of 1st party studios and they’re all working on PS4 games. PS4 will make a net profit, Sony won’t go bankrupt. I’m constantly right, as usual.

      Your favorite piece of plastic is getting dominated by PS4 in sales, games performance, and dev support, causing you to harbor fevered delusions about Sony going bankrupt. Sorry, won’t happen anytime soon.

      The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

      PS. Love you changed the pasta to say “Microsoft” fanboy. Windows is only a conduit while most games are developed there. Linux dual booting is something most Patricians do. Something console peasants used to be able to do but Sony took it away. And they praised Sony for it.

      Another reason why PC is the master race :^)

      Aww copying and pasting the same BS from every topic again. Everyone on this sight knows what a tool you are.

    • Guest

      Everybody on this site knows what a tool you are.

    • ME3X12_is_an_idiot

      You have the nerve to call him a tool, when you’re the one being the obnoxious, immature fantard. And as usual, Gamingbolt, still hasnt banned you. You sir, are pathetic! Grow up you child.

    Ok, first of all, latency has nothing to do with bandwidth (the supposedly claimed 100mbit connection). He could have 1000gbit connection and the lag would still be the same. Because lag is determined more by the distance to the servers and how many hops its gotta go through to get there. Second of all, how do we know, if somebody else isnt on this netwrok at the same time, slowing it down (especially, the ping time?). Sombody could be bittorrenting or doing p2p at the same time. And third of all, no internet connection is the world can avoid latency, which is just another one of the reasons why cloud computing would never work today. Because there you would actually have both problems, latency and bandwidth. Now yes, it could be that the servers are getting hammered. But all of the above are possibilities.
