Sony is gearing up for its game streaming service.
As promised, Sony has begun sending out beta invites for its cloud-powered, game streaming service PlayStation Now. Those who received the beta invite will need to agree to the license agreement. After this step, you’ll receive more information about the beta in the “coming days”.
Some requirements include a wired connection, preferably at 5 Mbps. Seems a little hefty, but considering the games in question, it’s understandable. As of now, the beta will only be for US gamers as PlayStation Now arrives this Summer in America.
Announced at the beginning of 2014, PlayStation Now is the rechristened Gaikai service that will allow consumers to play PlayStation 3 games on their PS4. Of course, it won’t stop there – Sony eventually has plans to stream games on to the Vita, smartphones, tablets and even get PS4 game streaming started in the coming months. While initially expected to offer PS1 and PS2 games as well, Sony has revealed a PS4 emulator for said titles instead.
