Everything you need to know about the future of game streaming
PlayStation Now, the pioneering game streaming service that leverages cloud-based technology to stream PlayStation 3 games over the internet is now in open beta in the UK!
PS Now puts epic adventures, iconic characters and incredible PS3 games at your fingertips. Play without needing to wait for downloads, updates or installs or make a trip to the shops.
To enjoy PS Now you’ll need a Sony Entertainment Network account, an accepted payment method, Dualshock 4 or Dualshock 3 wireless controller, a PS4 or selected compatible Sony device* and a broadband internet connection (minimum 5mbps recommended).
During the open beta, games will initially be offered for rental only, with a subscription service following later this summer. We are also looking to bring PS Now to more devices including PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV later in the year.
During the open beta there will be a wide selection of games available covering a host of genres and publishers. These will initially be available on two or 30 day rentals and range from £2.99 to £7.99 (pricing of individual games will vary according to the title in question).
Titles that you’ll be able to enjoy during the open beta include Bioshock Infinite, Final Fantasy XIII, Tomb Raider Underworld, Ultra Street Fighter IV, Dead Space and Mirror’s Edge with many more titles available**.
PS Now is available on the PS4™ console Store, find out more here.
