PlayStation Now Beta Set To Begin On Select Sony TVs From June 30

By   /   Jun 27, 2014

Sony has announced that its game streaming server, PlayStation Now will be available on select Sony TVs from June 30th, prior to the Open Beta launch of the service for PlayStation 4.

The announcement, made through Sony’s blog mentions that all of Sony’s recently launched 4K Ultra HD TVs as well as some 1080p ones will have the option to stream PlayStation 3 games through this Private Pilot Service.

Owners of the TVs will be able to use a DualShock 3 controller to enjoy some PS3 games; however there is no mention as to when this service will end. A variety of games will be available to choose from along with various rental periods and prices.

The Gaikai-powered PlayStation Now service was originally showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and works much like the OnLive service on PC; however let’s hope that it performs better than that.

As expected, since it is a streaming service, users will need a good internet connection for a good and smooth experience.

The service is expected to stream PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PS3 games to PlayStation 4, PS3, PlayStation Vita and other non-PlayStation devices in the future.

Excited to try out PlayStation Now before the Open Beta? Not unnerved by the somewhat absurd rental prices? Share your thoughts below.
