PlayStation now

This service lets you stream and play PS3 games on your PS4. Thought I'd give the 7 day free trial a go to see if it would work. It of course didn't work because of rubbish virgin connection . Even though I have 100mb. Thankfully I can cancel the trial

Re: PlayStation now

Hello broksonic

 

Sorry to hear you are having problems with the PS3 trial, I wonder what is going on. 

Your connection looks good from here, a little bit of area peak time traffic in the evening, it may impact you a little sorry but apart from that all good. 

Are you still having issues? Would you like to expand please? Are you using wireless to connect the PS4?

 

Thank you

Nicola

Re: PlayStation now

Hi Broksonic,

 

As PSNow effectively streams the games rather than downloading them it needs a constant connection. I used the service myself for the 7 days trial and it did advise a wired connection to ensure no breaks in service.
