Gaikai-powered game-streaming service PlayStation Now launching this summer

Posted on January 7, 2014 AT 11:02am

PlayStation Now, Sony’s videogame streaming service powered by Gaikai technologies, will rollout in full this summer, SCEI president and CEO Andrew House announced today.

Speaking during Sony’s CES 2014 keynote this morning, House revealed that PlayStation Now will stream PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3 games over the Net to PS4, PS3, PS Vita, and non-PlayStation devices, such as tablets, smartphones, and smart TVs. According to House, users will be able to rent games individually or pay for subscription plans. PlayStation Now will be available for PS4 and PS3 initially this summer, PS Vita later, and other devices later still.

PlayStation Now will enter a closed beta on PS3 later this month, leading up to its summer launch on both PS3 and PS4. The technology is being demoed at CES 2014 with Gaikai-based versions of God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, and Puppeteer playable on PS Vitas and Bravia HDTVs.
