PlayStation Now - Will it replace PS5 or is it destined to fail?

  • Posted April 25th, 2014 at 10:11 EDT by PSU Staff

No doubt, Sony is powerful enough to be able to get publishers on board, while one major hook of the service could be exclusive games that are only available to those who use the service. Even then, do gamers really want a streaming service at all? We’re not sure they do. Of course it’s handy to be able to store game save files in the cloud but we already experience (more so in the U.K. than North America) what it’s like to suffer from unstable broadband connections that kick us out of games or give our competitors the edge due to latency problems. Isn’t this issue going to be even worse if all games moved to the cloud in the future until fast, reliable broadband connections are the norm?

We're a long way of that happening across the major territories, which is going to give the PlayStation Now service a fairly rough start to its life. Sony may be pumped up for cloud gaming, but were not sure the rest of the world is ready for it to replace the console just yet.
