How Does The Last of Us Look on PlayStation Now?

Eye of the storm
We’re truly living in the future. Sony announced its new PlayStation Now cloud streaming service to much acclaim overnight – but while the pitch sounded intriguing, you may be wondering whether it actually works. The answer appears to be a resounding ‘Yes’, as the below video clip shows someone playing Naughty Dog’s survival horror opus – and our Game of the Year winner – The Last of Us on a Bravia television.
Just to clarify: there are no consoles or set-top boxes attached to this panel’s HDMI port. Instead, the display is simply streaming data from one of Sony’s nifty Gaikai servers, and sending inputs from a connected DualShock 3 controller back to the supercharged box. The low-quality camcorder footage makes it hard to identify any issues, but it still looks like a playable version of Joel and Ellie’s cross-country escapade to us. That alone is magic.
