    PlayStation Now (PS Now)



    Today, at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, we announced that PlayStation Now (PS Now), our new streaming game service, will be available in the US this summer. With PlayStation Now, you will be able to stream popular hits and classic games from the PS3 library, first on PS4 and PS3 systems, followed by PS Vita.
    In addition to PlayStation platforms, most 2014 US models of Sony’s BRAVIA TV lineup will support PS Now. Eventually the service will expand beyond PlayStation platforms and Sony devices, allowing you to stream PlayStation games across a broad range of Internet-connected devices.
    Leveraging Gaikai’s advanced cloud-based technology, PlayStation Now will allow you to:

    • Play video games instantly across multiple devices, similar to the way you might stream TV, movies, and music.
    • Stream full games to all of your compatible PlayStation devices including PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita as well as non-PlayStation devices, beginning with 2014 BRAVIA TV models and expanding to numerous other Internet-connected devices.
    • Always play the most updated version of your game. With games hosted in the cloud, you can take your game with you – just log in with your Sony Entertainment Network account on a compatible device and your games and saved progress will be easily available.

    We want to offer you choice when it comes to how you want to access content on PS Now, so you will be able to rent by title for specific games you are interested in. We’ll also offer a subscription that will enable you to explore a range of titles.
    PS Now will begin a Beta program in the US at the end of January with an expected full roll-out in the US this summer. Be sure to check the PlayStation.Blog regularly for more updates on the PS Now service.

    Very excited for this!

    I'm interested in the subscription details and cost. Can't wait to play all my favorite PS2 games again!

    Exciting news, exciting times!
    Just got to play the old waiting game until we know the ins and outs of the service, but it does look promising! I hope its limitless too, and eventually 90% of the PS library will be available for stream.

    But as I said, just gotta wait it out; and as gamers, we're pretty good at that!

    I'm interested, as long as it's included in PS Plus. If you have to pay any extra I'll pass.

    LOL we are very good at waiting. Sony bought Gaikai in June of 2012 and this is set to release this summer, so a year of working on this project while under sony's belt. I hope everything works out to our pleasure!

    i just wanna play Resident Evil 2 and 3 again!

    Rumour is PS+ will go on a tier system, and this will be included in the higher tier - this rumour has been around since before PS4 launch though.

    I'm just hoping they don't have problems with third party issues and once it opens, I'm hoping for a HUGE....(here I go...again) and I mean HUGE amount of titles in their library. At least 150 games for each console.

    THis is awesome news. Very interesting.

    Hope it's well implemented, and hope titles we've already purchased (at least digitally) will be available already.

    It really depends on the price for me. I would rather buy (or get the games free that I've purchased digitally) the games outright but still excited to see how this is implemented.

    I'm ok with that if the extra cost is reasonable.

    Too bad it won't come with PS Plus since pretty much every one with a PS4 is a PS Plus subscriber.

    Looking forward to this pricing will be a key factor but whether it be a monthly subscription, fixed fee or a pay for each title you want to play, I don't mind. Just really looking forward to more details at the minute. This wets my appetite though:

    "Destructoid - I just had my first hands on with the newly announced PlayStation Now streaming service here at CES 2014, and I'm here to tell you that it seems to work beautifully.

    It took me several minutes to wrap my head around that I was playing a perfect copy of The Last of Us on the Vita on the CES show floor. It was exactly like a Remote Play experience, complete with triggers being mapped to the rear pad. Gameplay was very responsive and completely lag free. Sony told us that a Gaikai server from down the hall was running the game"

    I actually hope it is a service-based fee as opposed to charging for every individual title. That's what would really suck. I think people aren't looking at it right.

    Here's an excerpt i'd added to the FAQ, let me know if i'm missing anything important.

    http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread...yStation-4-FAQ

    Playstation Now


    What is it?
    Playstation Now allows for streaming of popular Playstation games to devices such as PS4, PS3, Vita and other non-Playstation devices such as Bravia TV's.


    What content will be on offer?
    PS3 games are of first priority, while not every PS3 title will become available day 1 more will be added overtime. PS1, PS2 and even PS4 titles will also later become available through the service.


    When will it become available?
    A beta will begin at the end of January with full rollouts expected to be completed by the Summer. (Mainland US only)
    Further rollouts are to be announced at a later date.


    How fast does my internet connection need to be?
    PS Now tests your connection of each game and optimizes for quality. However it is recommended that your connection be at least 5MB.


    What if my connection drops?
    If the connection loss is temporary the game may drop in resolution until restored to allow for the game to remain functional.


    How much?
    No prices are available yet however you will have the option of renting, subscribing and even purchasing games.


    Will existing saves work?
    Yes, save files will be accessible through the cloud.


    Will I be required to download anything?
    No downloading, no installing and no patching.
    The cloud will contain the latest version of each game.


    What of other features?
    You will still gain access to trophies, friendlists and other PSN features.

    They said (at least in the article I read) that you can pay a subscription or "rent" games individually.

    You can also purchase and download the title, not yet known if that will still require some form of streaming for emulation but if it did it should be of minimal impact.

    More clarification needed of course.
