No one likes region specific services. PlayStation Now is one of those. Right now it is US-only. However that will soon change as another region gets access. The news is that Sony is opening up PlayStation Now to the UK via a private beta program.
This means that those in the UK with a PlayStation 4 who are members of PlayStation Plus, can be among the first to sign up for the PlayStation Now network in the UK. It’s not just a US only service now.
PlayStation Now lets you stream games in case you don’t know what it is. Through the cloud, PlayStation owners can stream games to their console without waiting for downloads. That’s why it’s called Now. You can get it instantly, when you want.
Even though Sony wants to bring the total PlayStation Now catalog to its users, they won’t all be available immediately. The beta starts this spring, although Sony didn’t give us a specific date. PlayStation Now users in the UK will get access to Sony Computer Entertainment titles, as well as select features from Sony’s partners. Below are the games Sony has named as being available in the UK trial:
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
The Last of Us and God of War Ascension
Rayman Legends (Ubisoft)
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (Ubisoft)
Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package (Koch Media)
Just Cause 2 (Square Enix)
The Walking Dead (Telltale)
Dirt 3 (Codemasters)
