Will PS Now ever be available in Australia ?
Oh you have good internet? That must mean everyone in the country does
They base it off the average speeds, as well as the average costs to get decent speed (neither of which is good here). Along with a number of other factors too. They don't look at us and think "Oh, snedd28 has great internet, let's get PS Now up and running in the country"@snedd28
There's allot of people having major problems with their new NBN connections, some are reporting slower speeds than ADSL@WhiteMonkey88
My old plan might as well have been utionet. And that was 10 foot from the router lol.
And I’m sure yours wasn’t much different when you lived out in whoop whoop.
At least the people being told 2020/21 for NBN in their area might actually get a good network by then@gavsta72
My NBN was excellent out woop woop. Fixed wireless with direct line of sight to the tower 1km away. 25 down and 5 up. Before that I had ADSL and that was about 3 down and 1 up@WhiteMonkey88
My old ADSL2 was very much like the first lot of NBN I had. Struggled to get 10 down@gavsta72
I read PS Now games games will be available to fully download later this year ,getting around a latency issue in streaming the game from the other side of the world . I'm sure once this happens it will be available in Australia.
That would only work for PS4 digital titles won't work for PS3 titles on PS NOW that make up most of the service...@Diemmore
You all realize that with PSNow you can (now) download a digital copy of any PS4 game on the service to your console and avoid the need to stream the game to you from a remote server? It's the same as buying a game from the Playstation Store and downloading it to play, the only difference is your license is temporary/lasts until your subscription expires.
If you don't have enough space on the HDD for a PS4 game you can use the option to remotely stream it to your console.
For PS3 and PS2 games you can only stream them :/
I coulda used PSNow's free trial to play Bloodborne while I waited for my retail copy to arrive... but now I see the service still isn't in Australia.
You realise this thread was from 6 and a half months before downloading became available?
Now - yes, there is more of a chance it could come to Australia, but at this stage, there is still no word on it happening.@Nicholas_Steel
So has anyone attempt to try the download feature,I'm tempted to but that's $down the drain if it doesn't work lol,my account is a us account.
It'd be great if PS Now comes to Australia soon. I finally have an internet connection that's quite a bit above the minimum requirements, and was disappointed to hear that Australia couldn't use the service, when the xbox game pass is readily usable. Due to knowing the service exists in other countries, I'm very reluctant to buy older games I'm interested in, even if they're cheap.
I had heaps of ads on ig about PS Now (even got games available on PS Now in my store), got actually interested in purchasing it and finally getting my hands on RDR1 but after half a day researching I finally discovered that it's not available in NZ. What a shame. You'd expect a Japanese owned super gigant would have servers available for our region as well, not only US with UK...
Sony in general seems to be really rustic company, after migrating from EU I had to say good bye to my EU account along with all PS3 games on it and now here I cannot even use their premium services...
They should at least let us download the games from PS Now and just disable steaming until we get better internet.
Eventually we will and people don't really need to worry about Internet connection to something like this it is a big task to do but they will use a similar system to what Netflix use which is kind of cool have a look at how Netflix works and why there's no latency in their movies that special storage devices in multiple spots in Australia with all the movies pre-downloaded and all we have to do is stream off those hardware devices from service close to us I'm assuming Sony will implement something similar but honestly it won't be until after the PS5 or later the only people at the moment they can possibly do this is Google with Project stream or something like that but that's not in Australia yet either
It would be good to have it in Australia some thing different to play
