PS4 News: New Leaks for PlayStation Now Beta, New PS Games for The Drop, and Expected E3 Game Leaked
By Gel Galang | May 5, 2014 2:08 PM EST
PlayStation Now for the PS4 is still on beta mode, but a new leak has popped out by way of a video that lets users see what the service is like.
The video can be accessed via DualShockers, who has obtained a file from an anonymous source, but basically, you can check out almost everything, from the launch of the service.
It also browses through a number of games that can be played, including Saints Row: The Third, Sniper Elite, Contrast and Puppeteer, but there's quite a long list already, though this can change before the PlayStation Now service is rolled out. The connection test was also featured, which will then prompt a screen that tells you that you can already stream games.
A quick look at the actual gameplay is also shown, as in the case of Puppeteer and Saints Row: The Third, both of which showcase pretty fluid responses without lags, at least as far as what was shown in the video. The only thing that took some time was loading the game, but the PlayStation Now beta has already improved loading times for some games in order to cut the waiting time for players.
The PlayStation Now service is slated for a summer 2014 release date in all its full version glory.
Another game at the E3 2014 for the PS4?
With the E3 2014 already just over a month away, rumours are already flying as to what gamers can expect for event, and the PS4's rumour is already alive and active, starting with the possible new project of From Software.
Sixth Axis reports that the recently bought From Software may reveal its newest title for the PS4 at E3 2014. Even though the new project, currently titled Project Beast has just been rumoured, there are already new screenshots that have been leaked alongside the working title.
From the looks of it, the game may be a dark one, with graves and scary-looking beasts and monsters with combat mechanics mixed in. You can check out the screens yourself in the link above, but they are either legit images or a fan is really invested in making them.
