PlayStation Now is a subscription-based service where users can pay monthly to access a hand-picked lineup of games. This service is available on PC, where the available titles – which change each month – can be played via streaming.
This means that while God Of War is physically still a PlayStation exclusive, PC players can now play the game on their own system.
Unfortunately, the streaming service leans quite heavily on internet usage, which means it isn’t recommended for anyone with less than a 5 Mbps connection. Even then, PC Gamer reports that the PlayStation Now service can still struggle to deliver in games like God Of War, where precise movements and reactive gameplay can suffer greatly from input lag.
In a discussion on Reddit, users note that PlayStation Now does not feel ready for PC yet, with one person saying “the input lag is atrocious”. On the other hand, another user says they have “little to no input lag at all” but the app functionality leaves something to be desired.
In other news, video game hackers claim that Denuvo and Capcom’s own DRM services are responsible for long-reported performance issues on the PC version of Resident Evil Village.
