PS Now Beta Coming in Spring, PS Plus Members Will Get Earliest Access

By   /   Mar 17, 2015

Sony has announced that they will be starting a limited beta testing of their cloud-based PlayStation Now service this Spring.

PlayStation Now is a game-streaming service that is the brainchild of Gaiki, which was acquired by Sony in 2012. PlayStation Plus members who own a PlayStation 4 have the opportunity to be the first amongst those who will test the cloud gaming service from Sony.

If you’re one of those fellows, you can register for the beta testing on the official PlayStation website. Other members can also participate in later stages of the beta testing, so the option to apply is available for all owners of the PS4 system.

PS Now will attempt to stream games onto your system at a ‘low rental cost’. The first device that will have this feature available will be the PlayStation 4, and later on more devices will acquire PS Now compatibility.

During the beta, games from various genres will be available through the SCE Worldwide Studios. These games include Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, The Last of Us and God of War Ascension, Rayman Legends (Ubisoft), Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (Ubisoft), Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package (Koch Media), Just Cause 2 (Square Enix), The Walking Dead (Telltale) and Dirt 3(Codemasters).

Additional games are expected to be added as the beta testing reaches its advanced stages. Note that for using PlayStation Now, you’ll need a DualShock 4/3 controller and a connection that reaches speeds of at least 5mbps.
