It was recently revealed that a select group of fans were invited into an exclusive beta test for Sony's new streaming service, PlayStation Now. And while those lucky users are playing the proposed list of test games to their heart's content, the rest of us are left twiddling our thumbs until the service launches fully. Help is on its way, though, as an avid and incredibly brave fan has posted a revealing video demonstrating the platform holder's broadcasting functionality.
YouTube user Matthew Jones has risked life and limb to share footage of the entire process that you'd have to go through to play Killzone 3 using PlayStation Now, and we're liking what we see. The shooter takes approximately two minutes to boot up, and then runs at an impressively smooth rate for the remainder of the clip, with no blatant examples of game breaking lag. We've got our fingers firmly crossed that the long initial loading time can mostly be blamed on the fact that this is the service's first test out in the wild.
With all of that said, however, there really aren't enough details to use this footage as a proper litmus test for the entire system, as we don't know Jones' connection speed or Internet provider. However, that's certainly not going to stop us from watching on in wide-eyed wonder. What do you make of this impressive clip? Has this sold you on the concept of cloud streaming?
