    Bragging moment. A certain Chavosaur just got his Email to be a part of the Playstation now Beta streaming service.

    So far, here are the games available to stream on PS3 only

    Here's how it works. I pick a game and it takes me to this screen

    As of right now it's free d course, but as we can see here, the rental image shows that it can be rented for a period of 1 day, 1 week, or 1 month. I assume this means there will be different prices for each option in the future, but as for how much I'm not sure.

    Once I rent the game, I select duration
    [​IMG]
    And then confirm purchase
    [​IMG]
    Afterwards you have the option to purchase other games, or immediately start the game
    [​IMG]
    Once you start your connection will be tested
    [​IMG]
    And finally the game will boot up.


    Judging by quality of the stream, although it's not a full retail title on par with uncharted or something it ran surprisingly well over wifi on my 50mb/s connection. I noticed no input lag and only minor choppiness in the stream when attempting to use other services on my internet such as YouTube and downloading things.
    Also surprisingly trophy support is already added in for these games as well~
    If anybody else has been able to test it go ahead and post your experience here!


    EDIT: I apologize for shit quality pics ill attempt to fix them

    When I got my email it told me I was specifically chosen due to my close location to PSNOW servers apparently. [/QUOTE]

    The games are...underwhelming. I thought there were other games like Catherine or Disgaea 4 in the beta.

    huh?? I though Playstation Now was PS4 only as the PS3 doesn't need streaming to play PS3 games(duh), but the more the options to play, the better and easier are thing for the people... I guess.
    also I haven't received a mail from Sony yet, if any :nayps3:

    as a note: Chavo please use the camera horizontally, like it was meant for, specially if you are taking photos to screens.

    I finished playing Dead Island and it worked. There was input lag but not too game breaking. Perfect for RPGs though.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    So I've been a huge supporter, buying digital games all the time, signed up a few times, and still had never gotten in. What the hell?

    I like to see you playing Tales of whatever or a similar Action RPG with input lag :tpi:

    that being said my download speed should be enough but my upload speed is sh*t.

    Glad to say I was invited as well a month or so ago. However if I were you wouldn't break NDA in addition to having your PSN ID visible. ;)

    Hopefully I'm invited to try out the PS4 beta as well.

    Would love to see the final pricing of these rented games and the performance reviews. :D
    This is shaping up to be good for the Sony.
