PS Now Open Beta Starts Today

Just in case you were interested, I guess.

Sony announced PS Now earlier this year, and it’s been in a closed, invite only beta for a while now. The service, for the uninitiated, will let users stream PS3 games on to their PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Sony TVs, and PlayStation 3 (yes, I don’t know why you’d want to stream PS3 games on to your PS3 either), but it won’t have a subscription plan, letting you ‘rent’ titles to stream for low prices of $15 for 90 days (in which case… you know, just go out and buy the damn game. Also, to Sony’s credit, they have said a subscription plan is coming).

Anyway, if, for some reason, you want to see how this service works- morbid curiosity, perhaps- then today, it went into open beta for all PS4 owners in North America. Sony is also offering rentals for $1.99 (these will last you four hours), in case that’s your thing.

I don’t know, as far as online streaming services go, I think EA has a better idea with EA Access than Sony does with PS Now.

    I rented killzone 3 on PS now and I was genuinely surprised how little latency there was. Its certainly improved over onlive and gaikai’s original service. There is still too much latency for me to enjoy most genres but if the price was reasonable I could see myself renting things like turn based RPGs or other games that don’t require precise twitch controls. Video quality was really good as well. Slight artifacting but it wasn’t distracting. Audio quality could use a bump though as it definitely had that overly compressed sound to it.
