Playstation Now Private Beta Hits PS4

Playstation Now Private Beta Comes to PS4 Tomorrow

Sony’s game-streaming service is going next-gen. Director of Marketing Peter Jamshidi announced today on the Playstation Blog that the private beta for Playstation Now will be available on the Playstation 4 starting tomorrow.

Up until today, the private beta for Sony’s streaming service has been available exclusively on Playstation 3 systems. Sony will be expanding the beta program by sending invitations to PS4 owners who have applied for the private beta. Sony has also announced that they will be sending out more invitations to PS3 owners.

Playstation Now is a gakai-based streaming service that allows players to stream PS2, PS3 and PS4 games, movies and music directly to a compatible device without any discs or downloads. Devices that support Playstation Now include the Playstation Vita, PS3, PS4 and 2014 Bravia TVs. Sony plans to add more to this list in the future.

Sony announced Playstation Now at the 2014 Consumer Electronic show on Jan. 7. The private beta opened later that month on Jan. 28 for Playstation 3 consoles.

The Playstation Now service will be available in the United States and Canada to all customers at some point during the summer.
