Playstation Now is the official client of the service of the same name, which allows you to play games on your PC from the game console Sony PlayStation 3. To deploy PS Now, Sony once purchased the famous Gaikai cloud computing service, which allowed you to run games on a remote server and broadcast the picture to the player's computer via the network. Actually, Now is built on the same principle. To use the service, you need to pay for a monthly subscription, after which access to the library is provided to more than 300 games, which can be played comfortably even on the weakest "hardware" in the presence of a quick and stable connection to the network. In addition, the service requires a DUALSHOCK 4 gamepad, which must be connected via USB cable.
Now let's talk about how convenient it is to play in Playstation Now. Service "broadcasts" a picture in the permission of 720p with frequency of 30 shots in a second. The vast majority of PlayStation 3 games were launched in this capacity, so that you can get a picture almost identical to the "physical" console. Playstation Now has almost no "scattering" of the image on pixels and has a fairly low input delay (which is not often the case with such services). The delay depends on how close Sony's servers are to you, so the quality of the "picture" may vary from city to city.
Playstation Now supports cloud storage, runs even on the weakest computers and notebooks, and offers several monthly subscription options with different price tags and available games. In general, Playstation Now is the only way to play hits like Last of Us, Uncharted, Red Dead Redemption, Heavy Rain and so on.
