PS Now Private Beta On PS4 Starts Now
PlayStation Now, Sony’s new video game streaming service, will be entering private beta on the company’s current generation console, the PS4. Previously the service’s beta was being tested on the PS3. Initial invitations are being sent out, though you can still sign up to the program. PS Now “will expand to a broader audience in the near future,” according to Sony.
“The Private Beta program has been going great so far, and we want to give thanks to the testers that have participated – your valuable feedback is helping us make the service even better. Thus far, Private Beta testers have logged more than 50,000 gameplay hours discovering new games, rediscovering favorites and racking up Trophies!” – The PlayStation Blog
From what we know about the program, it seems that we’ll be able to rent games for 1, 7 or 30 days and stream games from Sony. There are hundreds of games that should become available when the service becomes available to all owners of the PS4 and PS Vita later in the year. We don’t know how good the actual service will end up being, though reports seem to indicate that there it works well. I can’t wait for the service to arrive in the summer and you should be too!
