PlayStation Now Open Beta Lands On PS3 In North America

PlayStation Now has been in open beta on PS4 for a couple of months now – at least in North America – and we took a look at the service soon after it launched for all, noting that a few changes need to be made, including pricing and the egregious menu system.

If you don’t have a PS4, you’ll now be able to stream the library of games to your PS3. Obviously, this is less exciting, as you can just buy the discs for a lower price and they’re yours to keep, but the notion of instant gaming is still very tempting.


What will be much more interesting is when the service launches on PS Vita and mobile devices, opening up the world of PS3 games to a mobile market, and allowing you to truly get into your games on the go.

PlayStation Now will launch in Europe next year, with it coming to the UK before the rest of the region. Hopefully we’ll have more definitive dates soon.

  1. Not sure why I want this but I do… Along with playstation tv

  2. PS4 has the Gaikai chip which no doubt is employed in the PS4 Playstation Now, so it will be interesting to see how well the PS3 does it, presumably all through software .. perhaps this will be a working definition of the “Cell Broadband Engine” as they used to refer to it.
