PlayStation Now Review: 5Mbps vs. 100Mbps – Streaming Games Still Needs a LOT of Work.



PlayStation Now, xCloud, Google Stadia, so many services are making this big push for gamers to finally start streaming their games. And understandably no one wants to. Sony’s PlayStation Now has been here for a few years, and I think it’s time we really put it to the test. We give PS Now a pop quiz in Internet speeds and we test my patience for what threatens the very existence of my shelf that displays all my games. I hope you’re happy Sony.

  1. Interstellar Slavery

    I have 100 down and 100 up and being able to play BloodBorne for the first time, on PC, even streamed, is a godsend. The only issue I've had with is that sometimes the sound glitches for a fraction of a second, but that's it. Also, the input lag is pretty much non existent, at least for me.

  2. Ash N Anime

    i have like a 3-7 mbps upload speed and a 30mbps download speed and there was basiclly no input lag and the quility on the screen was suprisingly pretty good (with some compression somtimes) and i have never been kicked out of any of my games ive been streaming. Either my wifi is faster then it says it is, PSNow have updated for lower speed connections or this is clickbait.

    It works fantastic for me. Way better than I anticipated. Out of about 4
    hours of playing, it has had one hiccup. I also have 400 mbps internet
    (hardwired; usually pulls about 250mbps).

    In fact, its so good, I don't even download the ps4 games, I only stream.

    To really improve the speed, you need symmetrical (same upload and download) internet. I only have 15 mbps but both upload and download, and it´s suprisingly better than how it looked to you on the 100 mbps. Thanks for the video.

    Question regarding the 5 Mbps criticism. Was your setup really meeting the requirement? As in 5 Mbps, PS4 connected via ethernet cable and no other devices using internet at the same time? Because looking at the description all of those have to be met for minimum.
