PlayStation Now is Sony’s game streaming service that is gradually being expanded across the company’s consoles. It isn’t completely ready for the public as yet since PS Now is still in beta stage and has only been limited to the PlayStation 4 for over a month now. There’s good news for those who have been waiting for PS3 PlayStation Now beta to go live. Starting today PS3 users in mainland U.S. and some parts of Canada can access the game streaming service using their consoles.
As part of the beta program PlayStation 3 owners will see PlayStation Now titles listed in the PS Store. Currently the list of games that can be streaming through this service contains over 150 titles and it will only grow as the service expands.
Sony also confirmed some new additions to the lineup today which include God of War: Ascension, InFAMOUS and Ultra Street Fighter IV which will soon be available on PS Now.
There are a variety of subscription options available for PlayStation Now. Users will be able to rent a title for an entire week for about $1 a day in most cases. Some PlayStation fans aren’t too happy with the pricing structure but it is believed that prices may be revised when a full scale launch is near.
Do keep in mind that Sony recommends you have a hardwired internet connection greater than 5Mbps in order to stream games. If it doesn’t pass the connection test in PS Store you won’t be able to stream games.
