PlayStation Now Will Stream Sony Games This Summer

/ Jan 8th, 2014 No Comments

PlayStation Now

[adsense250itp]Sony announced PlayStation Now, a service for streaming Sony’s backlog of games, will be released in the United States this summer. PlayStation Now will enable gamers to stream games through the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita and other internet-connected devices.

While the cloud service will initially be released for PlayStation consoles, Sony also plans to make PS Now available through other devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops. Many 2014 models of Sony Bravia TVs will also support PS Now.

The PS Now service will be available for purchase as a subscription or gamers can rent games through the service individually. PS Now will support trophies, messages and online multiplayer as well. Attendees at CES 2014 will be able to play four games through the PS Now service on the show floor. Beyond: Two Souls, God of War Ascension, The Last of Us and Puppeteer are available through PS Now at the Sony booth. A beta of the service is expected to begin at the end of January.

Sony has not announced plans on how the service will work but a subscription or rental fee will likely be required. In all likelihood, it will not be included as part of the PS Plus service.

Our Take:

PS Now is good news for gamers. While Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime have cornered the market for streaming, renting and purchasing TV shows and movies, there aren’t too many services on the market that allow consumers to do the same with games.
