Sony is launching their new PlayStation Now service in the U.S. and Canada from Today, in the form of a public beta, and the game streaming service will be available on the PlayStation 4.
There will be over 100 titles available to rent through PlayStation Now, prices start at $2.99 for 4 hours, $5.99 for 7 days, $7.99 for 30 days and $14.99 for 30 days.
During the PS Now Open Beta, PS4 users will see a diverse library of more than 100 titles to rent, with more added regularly. PS Now will offer a variety of rental periods depending on the game, including 7-days, 30-days or 90-days, as well as a short 4-hour duration, so players can sample the experience first.
With a strong and stable broadband connection, visual and gameplay quality will be much like what you’re used to with other PS3 games. PS Now will also feature cloud game saves, as well as support for other popular network features such as Trophies, friend lists and leaderboards. You can also play seamlessly online with other people on PS Now, or even players who have the downloadable or disc based version of the game. As you know, the PS3 catalog of games is massive and incredibly diverse, and we’re thrilled to make these epic experiences available to PS4 first, followed by our other PlayStation platforms in the coming months.
