PlayStation Now Beta Game Loading Times Leaked, New Improvements

50°
17h ago - Some PlayStation Now Beta game loading times have been leaked from an anonymous participant and have since been compared to the previous phase of testing with details below.

To quote from DualShockers (linked above): "Back in February a reader that wished to remain anonymous sent us a list of the loading times of all the games that were available in the first phase of the beta of PlayStation Now.

The beta has now moved on to the second phase, with a whole lot of new games available and even some returning ones. The same reader took it upon himself to clock the loading times again using the same internet connection and shared them with us.

Like last time, each timing in the list below is from the launch of the game to the splash screen. We were provided a video as evidence, but we were asked not to publish it to protect the tipster’s identity (and account).

Between parenthesis you can also see the loading times of the returning games in the first phase of the beta, for comparison’s sake.

Current PlayStation Now Beta List:

  • Shadow of the Colossus - 46.72 (old time: 53.98)
  • WipeOut HD - 57.19
  • Dead Nation - 40.05
  • PixelJunk Monsters - 39.90
  • Shatter - 38.86 (old time: 39.77)
  • Guacamelee! –...

19w ago - XGen Studios CEO and Founder Skye Boyes shared details today on how to earn a PS4 Fortune in Super Motherload on PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hello, fellow miners! In case you missed the news, PS3 owners can now get their hands on Super Motherload and dig up some Martian gems with their friends.

In the wake of the PS3 launch, and to treat our players on PS4, today's post is all about tips and tricks - helping you to maximize your mining (and edging out the "friendly" competition). Follow these tips and you'll have your gold Trophies in no time!

Faster, Stronger: Dig straight shafts down to expedite returning to the surface. It's often worth the cost of bombs to ensure a better tunnel for speedy, collision-free travel.

Efficiency = Much Better: Fuel consumption is highest when digging and flying. Refrain from revving the engine when descending and stay still while figuring out puzzles to conserve fuel.

Make a Small Fortune: Consider your actions carefully when solving puzzles. A careless blast can render the reward irretrievable and result in bomber's remorse.

Be More Cautious This Time, Comrade: C4 destroys a 5X5 area, TNT destroys 3X3, and Shaft Bombs destroy 1X9. This can can mean the difference between grabbing valuable...
