PlayStation Now private beta extends to PS4 tomorrow
Sony has announced that the PlayStation Now private beta experience will be expanding to PlayStation 4 tomorrow, Tuesday, May 20.
"Up until this point, our Private Beta for PS Now has been available on PlayStation 3 systems. We’re pleased to announce that the Private Beta program is expanding and will make its debut on PlayStation 4 systems on May 20," said Peter Jamshidi, Sony's director of strategic planning. "If you’ve registered for the PS Now Private Beta, keep an eye on your mailbox for a voucher code."
Revealed back in January, PlayStation Now is a paid service that allows gamers to stream PS3 (and eventually PS2 and PS1) games to various Sony devices. The first supported devices when the service fully rolls out this summer will be PS4, PS3, PS Vita, and select Bravia televisions. PlayStation Now is currently in beta testing for the PS3, which Jamshidi says will be expanding "to a broader audience in the near future." You can register for PlayStation Now beta here.
Exact pricing details for PlayStation Now have not yet been revealed, but it's believed to have a subscription similar to Netflix with an alternative option to rent games on an individual basis. Hopefully, we find out more at Sony's E3 media briefing in June.
