To get what Sony is calling a “good experience” from most of the games on PlayStation Now, you’ll need a 5mbps connection speed. This is a quote from Sid Shuman, Sony Computer Entertainment America Social Media Manager. He demoed the service during CES 2014, and he reported his findings on the PlayStation Blog.
PlayStation Now is set to be released in summer this year in the US on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, with other devices like the 2014 Sony Bravia Televisions and more to follow.
There are minor concessions when it comes to graphics on the service and for now you’ll need your DualShock 3 Controller to play your PS3 games, so don’t throw them away just yet. For now the team working on PlayStation Now says that you’ll need a 5mbps connection speed to have a good experience with most of the games on the service but you can expect more information about this when the closed beta begins at the end of this month.
There has been no official word on when PlayStation Now will roll out in Europe, but you should not expect it until 2015.
