PlayStation™Now: Cloud gaming for the mass market

It’s not been officially released yet, but it’s possible to sign up for the PS Now beta on PS4 and PS3 and have a peek at what the future might offer. For the uninitiated, PS Now is a streaming service that lets you play PS3 games from the cloud, using your PS4 or PS3 (and in the future, Vita and PS TV). Once the service is up and running, we’d expect that Sony will look to expand the library to include PS4 games and perhaps even some PlayStation classics.


As far as we’re concerned, the fact that you can play PS3 games without owning a PS3 is still pretty cool. If and when the service expands to include PS4 games, then it’s worth remembering that you’ll be able to access them with the relatively inexpensive PS TV. The pricing model for PS Now isn’t locked down yet, so it’ll be interesting to see whether Sony sticks to a rental system or introduces some kind of subscription model in the future. We’d be all over that…
