Today, PlayStation Now service enters into closed beta phase for the PlayStation 4. This new service will allow users to stream the classic PlayStation titles with the help of cloud.
If you registered for private beta, you should already have received a code to help you participate.
The private beta has been going on for a while on PlayStation 3 and Sony has set sights to expand it so that more players can get access to the program and provide feedback.
PlayStation Now service seems great for the players who missed out on the last-generation of games, as it provides them an opportunity to play selected PS3 titles on PS Now compatible devices.
In a related news, Sony announced that they will also be bringing this awesome service to PlayStation Vita and Sony Bravia TVs, which means that you don’t even have to own the consoles to play some of the best titles of previous generation.
PlayStation Now is based on the technology by Gaikai which Sony bought for $380 Million. Once the beta tests are over, Sony will start to roll out this service for the consoles this summer.
Thus far, we know that The Last of Us and God of War: Ascension will be part of this service and if we are to believe the rumors, we may as well get to play ‘Uncharted’ series as well.
However, Sony has not mentioned anything regarding the pricing policy of PlayStation Now, but we are hoping to get more details on that at next month’s E3.
