    Default PS Now Download Incoming? [rumor]

    Hi all

    So a ‘download game’ option has been found in the PS Now service. Currently does nothing and can’t say what or even how it will work. There’s no indication that it will allow PS3 downloads but who knows. I’d personally be okay with PS4, PS2 and PS1, but it’s nothing more than speculation right now. That said if they are allowing for downloads, this could be huge.

    P.S as always. Take with pinch of salt.

    Not much of a rumour if there actually is a download button?

    This is good news, it would open up the service to many more people.

    Doesn’t do anything right now, so kind of just treating it like a rumor for now I guess

    Apparently the download button is only available on certain games so would be interesting to see if this does indeed end up happening will it only be available for certain titles.

    Does PS Now work properly in South Africa on a US or UK PSN account? Or is there still an issue accessing the service? Even with a 100mbps fibre connection?

    Well it's not open to SA account to start with.

    Then it's purely streaming to international servers so the latency is such that it would be useless.

    A download option would resolve all of that.

    The line speed isn't really the issue, just the latency.

    But yeah if there is any reason for them to add a download option it would be lesser internet areas.

    Doubt it would be non-PS4 stuff though.
