The first round of beta invites for PlayStation Now, Sony’s cloud-based game-streaming service, are being sent out to select PlayStation users.
Reports of the invites first surfaced on social networking sites and NeoGAF as successful applicants posted screenshots of their beta invite emails. According to the invite, players will require a PlayStation 3 and a broadband connection with a speed of at least 5Mbps. Sony has since confirmed that the emails are legitimate.
The Gaikai-powered service will allow players to stream PlayStation 3 games to several devices when it launches later this year, with support for PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 4 games set to follow at a later date.
