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.

 

*The PS Now open beta trial will be available on PS4 and select Sony Bravia TVs:
Day 1 – 2015 Series: X94C, X93C, X90C, S85C, S80C, X85C, X83C, W85C, W80C, W75C, W70C Series
Later date – 2014 Series: X95B, X90B, S90B, X85B, W95B, W85B, W80B, W70B, W60B, W58B Series
Sony Blu-ray Players


Day 1 – 2015 Series: BDP-S6500, BDP-S5500, BDP-S4500, BDP-S3500, BDP-S1500


**Games included in the open beta won’t necessarily represent what’s offered in the full PS Now service, and may change during the beta trial.

Sony is the NEW Microsoft. With such a large market share this gen it will only get worse. 

 

This is a complete scam IMO.

The PS Now should be set like the PS Plus and all Games should be £5- £10 - No more than that. Think about it.

Not really a scam, you can see exactly what you're getting before you lay for it and when you do, it works really well. It is a little expensive and lacking compared to the US model though.

Seems to have had a cracking update regarding stability. Been playing a couple of games past few days and the stability is brilliant. No lag at all on any of the games. Keep it up Sony.

But of course I have an opinion. Have you not seen my platinum...

But WHY was is it almost impossible to see anywhere that PS NOW is onle available some places? In Denmark unfortunately not. I just bought 2 PS3 controllers only for PSNOW. I'm pretty dissatisfied about this!
