Except this is streaming, not a true PC port. Which means tons of input lag. And if there's any game where you want minimal input lag, it's a Souls game.[/quotemsg]
It's not on the list at all, but I still want it there despite what you've mentioned. The input lag (depending on location of the servers) can't be too bad, or only turn-based RPGs would be suitable for play. Those alone might be worth the price of admission anyway. We'll have to see.
I used to try that OnLive game service or whatever it was called. The server was approximately 250-300 miles away. I'm pretty sure its not streaming gameplay in real time. You would download a decent chunk, and while experiencing that 'segment', you are downloading a new chunk. As long as your downloads keep ahead of your gameplay, it should be fine. The real issue would be how much compression of the textures has to take place to keep you ahead.
I played a couple 3rd person action games like Batman Arkham Asylum and some other one. The compression was horrible but there was little to no input lag that I could perceive.
I'm cautiously optimistic.[/quotemsg]
Well, really, used PS3s and games are cheap these days. If you don't have a PS3 handy, you could get one and a proper copy of Demon's Souls for the cost of, what, three months of PSNow and have a much better experience.
But this is all moot anyway since Demon's Souls isn't even on the list.
