Playstation Now: Sony's Game Streaming Service Revealed

Jan 07, 2014

Back in February 2013, Sony's recently acquire Gaikai streaming service was talked about when Sony pulled the curtain on the Playstation 4, but not in depth. What we got a hint at was instant access to Sony's game-library, new and old via cloud-based streaming. Well Sony just spilled the beans on what they we're were working on and it's officially called Playstation Now. And it's coming soon.

Playstation Now will be available Summer 2014 in the United States. It will allow Playstation gamers to enjoy PS3 games on their PS4 and PS3 first, and then PS Vita access follows after. Some Bravia Smart TV's will even have access eventually.

The game selection will be limited to start as expected but as Sony has proven with their PS Plus service, they offer games worth playing and the library will grow. The Last Of Us and Beyond: Two Souls have been confirmed to be available for the start of the service.

Gamers will have a choice as to how they experience the service. Playstation Now games can be accessed by renting games on an individual basis, or a subscription can be purchased to allow access to full library of games.

If the Playstation Now service proves to be stable it will add an incredible amount of value to Sony's PS Vita. Imagine being able to access the best PS4 and PS3 games via the cloud and then have them streamed to your Playstation Vita while your enjoying some free Wi-Fi down at the local coffee shop. Sounds awesome right? Well hopefully sooner rather than later, this promise becomes a reality.

Sony recently announced the PS Vita TV as well, although it's only available in Japan at the moment -- and isn't selling well.
