PlayStation Now Beta Games List Possibly Leaked

The Now nine.

Early last week Sony started sending out invites to PlayStation users in the US, specifically owners of the PS3 with the only requirement having a wired 5 Mbps or higher internet connection. Now it appears that someone who is in the beta has leaked the list of games that are available to test, at least according to a post on Gearnuke. The list is as follows:

  • Killzone 3
  • Puppeteer
  • Shadow Of The Colossus
  • Papa & Yo
  • Darksiders II
  • Disgaea 4
  • Ninja Gaiden 3
  • MX vs. ATV: Alive
  • Shatter

It’s a very varied list with all sorts of games from the blockbuster that is Killzone 3 to the smaller titles like Shatter. The PlayStation Now beta is only taking place in the US, where it is scheduled to launch this year while those of us in Europe will have to wait until some point in 2015.

The reaction to the service when it launches publicly is something I’m keen to see, especially the number of people who take advantage of the streaming service. While TV & film streaming has largely caught on game streaming is still in its infancy, with it not really yet taking off with the likes of OnLive failing to capture a large market share. However a known brand is likely to be much well received by the general public, especially if ¬†heavily marketed.

    A sensible selection of games to test a variety of genres and playing styles.

    I hope the stupidity of the internet doesn’t blow this up to suggest PS Now will only have 9 games at launch.

    It’s strange that they’ve been demoing it with The Last of Us but that’s not in the list of games…

      I guess it all comes down to licencing issues. The last of us is a pretty decent game so I guess I’d cost too much to give away in a beta.

        *recent
        Not ‘decent’. Not that it isn’t a decent game

      Possibly if games are too recent and popular it could cause problems if too many people want to play the same game…

    Sony need to make sure they have a variety of options and try to make the service as convenient as possible.
    It would be good to be able to pay a small price to try out a game for a few hours before I buy the disk, and the ability to just pay for the games you want rather than one expensive blanket subscription.

    This is the sort of service that once somebody has tried it, they will be more likely to come back and try it again, so they need to make as many people try it as possible!!
