Folks in the United States have had open access to PlayStation Now beta for a few months, but today it’s being extended to users in the United Kingdom at long last. If you aren’t aware, PlayStation Now is a game streaming service from Sony that lets users stream PlayStation 3 games over the internet on PlayStation devices as well as smart TVs from Sony and Samsung.
The service is now in open beta for those lucky users located in the United Kingdom. They had to wait a bit, but better late than never.
While PS Now subscribers in the U.S. have access to a subscription service which lets them stream as many games as they want for a fee, initially during the open beta in the UK, games will only be offered for rental individually. However, Sony does say that a subscription service will go live later this summer for them.
Sony is also hard at work to bring PlayStation Now to other devices like the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV later this year. A huge variety of games will be available to PS Now users from many publishers. They will be available for two or 30 day rentals at first for £2.99 to £7.99. So go ahead and give it a try. Gamers really seem to like it.
