    A purported list of games currently being tested on PlayStation Now has emerged online, showing improved loading times for each title.

    News site DualShockers claims to have been given verifiable data which lists many of the games currently being tested on PlayStation's game streaming service. These include:

    Shadow of the Colossus
    WipeOut HD
    Dead Nation
    PixelJunk Monsters
    Disgaea 4
    Dead or Alive 5
    Critter Crunch
    Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond
    Zeno Clash II
    Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
    Puzzle Quest: Galactrix
    Rise of the Guardians
    Dead Island
    Payday: The Heist
    Order Up!!
    Alien Rage
    Real Steel

    This new list does not confirm these games will appear as part of the PlayStation Now service, though it does make them likely candidates.

    Additional games, previously cited as part of the ongoing PlayStation Now beta in the US, included:

    Papo & Yo:
    Killzone 3
    Darksiders II
    MX vs. ATV: Alive
    Ninja Gaiden 3

    Dualshockers also claimed that speed tests on each of the games showed a clear increase on loading times. In a previous test, many PlayStation Now games took as long as 50 seconds to load via servers, though on average that number appears to have been reduced by about ten seconds.

    These tests may not be representative of the overall experience for many users as this one test cannot take into account other key data, such as location from servers and broadband speed.

    PlayStation Now is colloquially referred to as "a games Netflix"; the service grants users access to various PlayStation games from years past and previous console generations. Those games are initially playable on PS3, with support for Vita, PS4, tablet devices and Sony Bravia TVs also planned.

    Much like with how OnLive works, games are streamed via server farms. The latency of the service remains a big challenge for Sony to overcome.

    PlayStation Now rentals recently surfaced on the PS Store by accident.

    none of those interest me seeing as only $10 (doesn't matter where you are) goes to the game dev's. So in other words SONY is fucking the Game Dev's over on this type of deal for each game downloaded, where over on the Microsoft's side of things each time a free game gets downloaded I think the game dev's get the full price so that they aren't missing out on cash coming in
