PlayStation Now (beta) game streaming released for PS4

Sony will launch Playstation Now beta today and this time it will be available to Ps4 users as well. The service was available to Ps3 users only. It is likely that Sony will launch the service on PS Vita and select 2014 Bravia TVs this summer as well.

Playstation Now is a video game streaming service based in Gaikai and is used to stream playable Playstation games to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. It supports streaming of Playstation, Playstation 2 and Playstation 3 games either as individual rentals priced around $6 or as part of currently unpriced subscription plan.

In order to get the optimal performance from the service, users will need a connection speed of at least 5 Mbps.

According to PS Blog, the Private Beta program will make its debut on PS4 systems today and users who have registered for the PS Now Private Beta will be emailed a voucher code for using the service. Other than games, users can stream movies, TV shows and music directly to their favorite PS Now compatible devices without downloading or copying anything. Sony says that PS Now will be launched for more Sony devices in future. 

Users who aren't member of the Private Beta community can register here.
