PlayStation Now announced

Posted by on January 7th, 2014 | 1 Comment | Tags:

During today’s CES Keynote Andrew House took the stage to announce a new streaming service called PlayStation Now. This is of course the service that will take advantage of the Gaikai technology.

There’s still plenty of details to come but here’s what we know so far. PlayStation Now will allow for instant access to PlayStation One, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3 games. Through this you’ll be able to pay for a subscription to have access to these games or simply rent by title. PlayStation Now will be available now only from the PS4 but also the PS3, PS Vita, TVs, tablets, and smart phones. A closed beta will start at the end of this month with a full release beginning this Summer.

No official announcement has been made about specific pricing, which games will be available, or who might be able to get into the closed beta. That said it seems likely we’ll learn much more about PlayStation Now at both GDC and E3 later this year.

We’ve known about Gaikai for a while now but with clearer details out what do you think about PlayStation Now?
