Sony recommends a 5MBPS+ connection to use PlayStation Now
Sony’s PlayStation Now will require a minimum 5Mb per second connection, according to a response posted on the PS Blog.
“PS Now tests your connection of each game and optimizes for quality if you are above the minimum requirements,” Harper continued. “We strive to make the gameplay experience feel as if the game is being played locally on their device – fast and responsive (including for FPS and games with twitch mechanics).
“The Closed Beta will definitely provide a great opportunity to test the experience with gamers with varying connection speeds and our developers will, of course, be working diligently to optimize the service based upon the feedback we receive from the community.”
PS Now will not only allow users to purchase titles through the service, but rent them as well. Should a user decide to purchase the full version later, they can do so easily as all files are stores to the cloud. This means all saved game progress will be available as well.
