PlayStation Now Latency Being Tested On God of War: Ascension In This New Video

God of War: Ascension is one of the games that is being released on PlayStation Now, the upcoming cloud streaming service from Sony. As expected from every cloud streaming service, it adds additional latency to controls.

A new video posted by malik4play shows the controller and the screen as he does a short and quick latency test. You can check out the video below.

Additionally, you can also check out a GIF that we made of the video. This GIF is slowed down to show the latency of the control. As seen in the GIF, there is indeed slight lag between pressing the button and seeing our action on the screen. Check it out below.

Keep in mind that the game is being played on a Bravia TV, which typically has its own latency in addition to the latency of PlayStation Now. If you want to see The Last Of Us being played on the PlayStation VITA, you can see it here.

PlayStation Now streaming service was recently announced at Sony’s CES 2014 Keynote. A beta is scheduled to launch in North America in January while the actual service will be made available to the public this summer. Initially, it will be available on PlayStation 4 but gradually, they will roll out this service to VITA and Bravia TVs along with potentially more devices in the future.

What do you think of the latency of the PlayStation Now? Let us know in the comments below.
