    PlayStation Now Beta: Starting a Game Can Take Almost Two Minutes

    http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/02/...t-two-minutes/

    PlayStation Now Beta: Starting a Game Can Take Almost Two Minutes

    Hereís a breakdown of the loading time, starting from the button press that launches the game from the PSN-like UI:
    • Authorizing: 8 Seconds
    • Testing Connection: 15 seconds
    • Loading Game: 21 seconds
    • Further Loading on Black Screen: 32 seconds
    • Warning Splash Screen: 4 seconds
    • Setting up Trophy Data: 12 seconds
    • Sony Splash Screen and Loading Animation: 25 seconds

    Total loading time: 117 seconds.Of course the numbers above are prone to be partially influenced by connection speed and by the game being played (in this case it was Killzone 3), but itís quite unlikely that theyíll get much shorter, at least for what the beta is concerned. Itís very possible that Sony will manage to speed the process up before release and down the line.
    2 minutes is a long time this gen lol.

    Two mins.. that's it? I don't see how that is a long time. Get an iPad/Sony tablet if [you] don't like the wait times lol. It's kinda ridiculous, to me, when I hear complaints of wait times. If [you] can do it better, put your money where your mouth is.

    [you] is a general reference.

    2 mins to get a streamed game started is not so bad. And this is a beta.

    Hell, PSP games took longer than that just to load a level lol. Also, Uncharted games on the PS3 take quite a few minutes to initially load the game.

    If waiting two minutes makes the game more playable then I am for it.

    Select game you want to play. Go to the fridge and grab a beer. Go to pantry and grab a snack. Head back to your game and it is ready. I see no problem.

    Hopefully 2 minutes load time means no lag and plays perfectly smooth thereafter.

    I assume once in these games will play performance wise like they did on PS3?

    all the uncharted games and TLOU did that because once it loaded it didn't again. i actually prefer this method over the status quo

    2 minutes? Majority of guys could have sex 2 times before getting into the game. Working as intended.

    2 minutes is not that long to wait, you should try waiting for a bus or train in England

    I bet both failed in comparison to the wait times of the first Motorstorm! Just flicking through cars was a chore

    2 minutes is a fine amount if it means it'll be buffered and you won't get jitteriness. Go get some snacks and a drink.

    Not sure if anyone knows but how would multiplayer work? Would you be playing against PS3 users playing it natively or against other PSN players? Playing against PS3 would surely give you a latency disadvantage wouldn't it?

    if 2mins spent before the game loads helps to buffer game data enough to give me a lag-less experience during play....I'm all for it.

    heres a vid of someone using the service on their ps3. This coincides with the times listed in the OP. So chances are good the ps4 should have quicker loads.

    Hopefully should be quicker on the PS4, downloads certainly are much quicker so hopefully PS Now should be.....

    I don't see why the PS4 would magically make it work faster since this app doesn't seem to be resource intensive (Hell I even think they might be able to make it so you can suspend your games and come back to them later; Netflix and Share menu do this ). I really think it all has to do with your connection and the quality of playstation servers.

    Sony already mentioned somewhere multiplayer will work the same (PS Now users + PS3 users).

    Edit: Sorry double post
