    No matter how many titles they add streaming games is a terrible idea.

    I’ve used PSNOW for about 2 months in total on PS4 to play some PS3 games. I really enjoyed the service it’s way better than I thought it was going to be. I think it’s worth the money but everyone seems to hate it. I still prefer physical copies of games so hopefully this does not indicate PS5 games will not be physical because that would be cancerous.

    Enjoy streaming playstation exclusives at 720p/30fps pcucks. I’ll be enjoying them at 1080p 60fps on native PS4 Pro hardware.

    Most PS4 games are 30 fps anyway.

    Also implying a PCfag would pay to play shit like Horizon, Uncharted, The Order or Knack.

    Still a dumpster fire of a service.

    but still require a ps4 controller and adapter (for pc) to play it wirelessly, unless you got a 3rd party adapter that mimic a ps4 controller.

    Yep, which is the thing that sorta kills the idea of attracting people who have little if any interest in investing in hardware.

    Netflix works because just about everything can support it, no additional accessories needed. Why would somebody be interested in buying a kit that to them, only streams Playstation games?

    At least in the case of PC gamers you don’t necessarily ‘need’ wireless, since you’re more likely to be within 6ft of the system anyway, and mobile devices already support the connection.

    Well, considering I wouldn’t be enjoying them at all before, I think I will be enjoying them now, thanks.

    heh… yea pretty much, the ps4 controller is pretty useless on windows pc games that uses xinput (xbox 360/one controller input), unless you find a 3rd party adapter or program that mimics the xinput.

    Steam added support for it though, so its mainly an issue for non-Steam games now.

    Button prompts are another matter though, since not many games use it.

    yea i read that somewhere, but usually it supports xinput device more and non-xinput ones have to be program into it, because xinput widely used on pc due to xbox 360/one.

    Some games actually do support Playstation prompts, just not very many.

    Nintendo’s aren’t such a big deal since they use mostly the same A/B/X/Y layout.

    yea, some only but you have to go through some files to enable it like the 1st borderlands game i have to go though to use xbox 360 prompts, but using a wii u pro controller with a mayflash wii u (pro) controller adapter that switch from dinput to xinput.

    yea, but they’re kind of flip, sometimes i get confused too, between nintendo and microsoft.
