    PS Now is still only PS3 games and lag, why should people not buy a new PlayStation console?

    I don't think it's going to work, no matter how hard they push it. I understand exactly how it would benefit the publishers, and that they would love to force it on us. But the tech doesn't work for competitive shooters, which makes it a pipe dream. Wishing won't make it so.

    This tech has been around for years, and there's been little-to-no-progress made on eliminating the lag. Aside from crystal ballin', we've seen no tangible evidence it's going to get better.

    Where are you getting the doom and gloom on lag? I mean I was exactly the same way, but I tried it a year ago, and it worked fine on a hack-and-slash combo game. I get that it still wouldn't be good enough for fighters, but it seemed perfectly fine by FPS standards, especially given that people are used to enduring far higher network ping in peer-to-peer shooters.

    I don't know, maybe I had some isolated good experience. If you have a PS4 you can go do a free trial today if you want. See for yourself if it's workable or not.

    No way man! RedRedSuit says it runs surprisingly well. Then again, that is with his whisper quiet PS4 that no one else owns and his amazing 1080p eyes.

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.

    Pass on PS Now on PC. But I'd totally buy PS exclusives, new and old, if on PC. Make it happen!!!!

    On another note, $25 of the DS4 USB wireless adaptor is nice and personally cheap. That's kind of what the official 360 and XO ones were for, not sure if the new controllers that are BT works if you have a BT module or BT equipped mobo

    Sadly Sony is doing well enough that they don't have to go the route of MS.

    that could change at any moment, you know.
    how much of the farm are they betting on PSVR to take off?

    and by route, do you mean not charging again for BC titles?

    BTW- North Korea launched a new movie streaming service called "Manbang".

    Somewhere in the bowels of Alaska...Twonun and Onslaught know what Kim Jong Un is talking about.

    Well I meant the route of bringing their games onto PC platforms. But yes, PS Now is an endgame product for Sony so I see them polishing the tech until the market is ready for it.
