A copy of the email can be seen below.

R4m3wxuPlayStation Now is Sony’s answer to backward compatibility on the PS4 and VITA. The service was announced recently at CES, 2014. Initially, only PS3 titles will be offered on the service. Sony plans to expand the service later, offering more titles on the service including PS1, PS2 and even PS4.

If you have applied for the BETA invite, make sure to check your email and claim it ASAP. The currently sent invites are for limited BETA so the participants won’t be that large. The service is officially set to launch on the PS4 this summer in US. There is no official confirmation date for EU but rumors point to an early 2014 release date.

You can check out how The Last of Us looks on this service, being streamed on a VITA, or you can check out the lag that a user faced on God of War: Ascension. As a cloud service, lag can be an issue for sure. Hopefully, Sony can fine tune it to the point that the experience works smoothly.
