We spent some happy nostalgia evenings with Classic games from the new PlayStation Plus Premium subscription. Here’s how it went with streaming PS1 and PS3 game emulation.
Taking into account the minimum specifications reported by Sony (5 Mbps for ‘simple’ playback and 15 MBps for a 1080p video stream), even with a connection that averages 25 Megabits, we found intermittence in the video stream, with system warnings due to “poor network quality”, despite the ideal network conditions and the absence of structural obstacles in the course of the test.
We do not know if these problems are due to “traffic congestion” determined by the curiosity of those who are experimenting with everything that the Premium subscription to the New PS Plus has to offer them, the fact is that in our tests only through a at least 100Mbps connection we were able to enjoy an uncompromising gaming experience, net of the inevitable artifacts of video compression that characterize this kind of streaming services.
