The future of gaming is here, because Sony has kicked off the open beta test for their new game streaming service PlayStation Now. It’s available to PS4 owners in the U.S. and Canada, with more than 100 PS3 titles available to stream instantly from the cloud. You can rent them for 4 hours, 7 days, 30 days, or 90 days, and prices will vary depending on the popularity of the game. You’ll also need to have a good broadband connection in order for everything to run smoothly.
The final version of PlayStation Now is expected to launch on the PS4 later this year, and it will eventually find its way to the PS3, Vita, Sony television sets, and even non-Sony devices like smartphones and tablets. Yes, in the not too distant future, you’ll be able to play games like The Last of Us and Infamous on your phone.
