PlayStation Now PS4 private beta launches

Ps4 Unveil

Sony’s game streaming service goes into the beta phase on PS4

Due to finally arrive in the Summer, PlayStation Now has opened up private beta on the PS4 following a run on the PS3.

PlayStation Now allows you to stream a pre-selected stock of games (currently PS3 titles) to PS Now enabled devices without the need for discs or downloads. PS Now currently supports PS3, PS4, some select 2014 Bravia TVs and Vita, with plans to integrate more devices into the system later.

There’s a fairly mixed bag of games currently available. Payday 2, Killzone 3, Shadow of the Colossus, Infamous 2 and Ninja gaiden 3 are all included amongst others.

Speaking on the PlayStation blog yesterday Peter Jamshidi PS Now marketing head noted, “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!”

PS Now beta on the PS3 is also set to expand to take on new members. If you’re keen to get on board you can register your interest here.
