Sony Launches PlayStation Now Game Streaming


PlayStation-Now-SonySony has launched PlayStation Now, a streaming game service that leverages cloud-based technology, at CES 2014.

PlayStation now will become available in the United States starting this summer, and deliver PlayStation 3 game titles on PlayStation 4 and PS3 systems via the Internet, followed by the PlayStation Vita handheld system. Most 2014 U.S. models of Sony’s Bravia TV lineup will support PS Now as well.

Sony says it plans to expand the PlayStation Now streaming service beyond PlayStation platforms and Sony devices, allowing users to stream PlayStation games on numerous other Internet-connected devices.

A beta program on PS3 systems in certain regions of the United States will be available from the end of January.
