PlayStation Now is a subscription based service, that is going to launch in North America this summer. It will be available for the PlayStation 4 first and will gradually roll out to VITA and Bravia TVs sometime later. A beta is going to launch in North America in January. There is currently no info available about the launch of this service in Europe. We can either opt for a subscription based service or pay a specific fee per title.

    $0N¥ truly is the laughing stock of the entire industry with their PoS NOTwork and their lagfest servers. This is going to run like crap with millions online as GaiKai was already a PoS.

  • Losyak

    Pricewise I can see this being in the GameFly zone ($15-20/month) but I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out to be much higher

  • Joe

    Doesn’t interest me to be honest i doubt i’ll use the service. BUT it is an amazing feature to have and i know many of my friends that would jump on it.

  • Sleebs

    PlayStation Now will be on the Bravia TVs? So technically, we wouldn’t need a console? If so, we’d still need a controller to communicate with the TV. . . Wait, you’re genius . . Built-in PS4 television sets!? GOLD.

    Your move, Microsoft

  • cj

    It better be part of ps plus

  • Derek Bell

    Gaming surely is a dear hobbie.

  • PachterStation

    If say you’re living in the UK, I can’t see how people are going to be able to afford for example, a Sky or Virgin Media subscription, telephone line rental (also used for an internet connection), cost of telephone calls, PSN Plus and/or Xbox Live Gold, Mobile contract or pay as you go, then PlayStation Now. It’s not forced on you, but all these services, there’s going to be some winners and losers, not forgetting the likes of Lovefilm, Netflix and Blinkbox and that’s to name a few. Sony are taking the p**s big time with PSN Plus and PlayStation Now. Gaming in general, games topping £60, then the extra cost of DLC, most of us need a money tree. Surely there’s going to be a crash once all these services start locking heads.

      Well they cant exactly offer things free. I reckon we’re very early on in a digital age of online streaming. Eventually the technology will improve and things will get cheaper and more widely accessible. This is a great move to introduce these types of services to the mainstream. Why? Because there will be more competition and more competitive pricing. Trust me, Netflix would NOT be £6 a month if it was the only service of its kind.

  • Steven Solidarios

    The biggest part is that it will stream to Sony tv’s as well as vita. Im sure eventually phones and tablets will join this list. Eventually they can stream Xbox games too because theres no reason for them to even exist now!

  • BalramRules

    Oh. My. God. Is this for real? The Last of Us, perhaps the game that best defines the PlayStation 3’s power of that generation, playing on a VITA?
    Wow, if this is what PlayStation Now is capable of, the people at Gaikai have done an absolutely magnificent job, and I only have on request: BRING ME MOAARRRR. 😀

    • Jason Mounce

      Microsoft talks about Cloud like its space magic and it’s capable of helping them spread zombie stats and spread sparkledust through wishful, optimistic flexing and boasts and promises.

      Sony…..shows us what Cloud CAN and WILL do without any bullshit or space magic. Sony didn’t talk smack about Cloud or ‘TEH POWER OF TEH CLOUD’, they showed it now, laid their cards down and showed us what Cloud can do. Not tell us ‘WE HAVE THIS MANY SERVERS RUNNING!’ Where Sony goes “Here, a PS3 game running on PSV with minimal discrepancies’ – Proof, evidence, video, screens.

      ‘Wow Now’. NOT WOW-LATER, Microsoft.

      • AdrianHD

        Fanboy alert, really? Let’s wait for the actual product to roll out with many people streaming it at once. This screams OnLive right now.

        • Jason Mounce

          How optimistic of you to be hoping/expecting for server overloads? At the end of the day though, anyone or everyone can expect Network-related devices/programs to not be Spit-polished out the door when its out in publics hand, the note to be taken is which ‘Product’ or feature will be the best at arrival, and will progressively be easier known as the best for consumers. With that said…..Playstation Now takes the cake both by concept, features, capability and thus-forth.

          You could say many things scream OnLive, however, Gaikai was Gaikai, and OnLive wasn’t selected over Gaikai for a reason too 😮

    • Guest

      Yeah great. More pauper rentals.

  • Jewy McJew

    Its a great idea business wise to limit the games to PS3 or lower… Onlive probably lost a fortune having to update its server hardware every few months!

    • Bradley Lansiquot

      i believe it streams ps4 games too

      • Joe

        You believe wrong. That would be incredibly silly.


    I say bring it on, but I just hope they don’t charge an arm and a leg per monthly subscription in the beginning like they did for music unlimited.

    • hesoyamdonMonster

      i hope they will include it on ps+

      • MB.Mephisto

        I was hoping this also. Would be a huge bonus if it was.

      • asdasd

        lmao they wont. ps+ has already a great value with the free games and they wont let everyone stream games just how he wants. streaming needs incredible high serverconsumption so no. im 100% sure.

        • RoadShow

          I think PS+ will have a tiered subscription. Current would be like gold and streaming included would be platinum.

          However I would hope that with the current ps+ subscription we get at least like a free game rental a month or something.

        • Joe

          Yep, no chance in hell that it’ll be included with PS+. They’d basically be giving it to the majority of PS4 users at no extra cost. That’s a suicidal move.

          Free game rental a month would be nice though.

        • Dan Harvey

          I just hope if you own the game you can stream it for free…rather than paying for it again. E.g. I own TLoU – i should be able to stream it to my PS4, Vita, Tablet, Phone, TV at no extra cost…

      • Navstar86

        Or a Now and Plus rolled up into one subscription that’s cheaper than having two.
