Playstation Now beta invites being sent out

See also

Sony re-branded the Gaikai cloud streaming service as Playstation Now during a CES presentation earlier this month with the promise of a beta launching by the end of January. The first beta invites were sent out Tuesday to those that signed up.

"With this invitation, you will receive exclusive access to test PlayStation's game streaming service before its full launch and the opportunity to provide your regular feedback to the PlayStation Now team," the beta invite reads (via NeoGAF).

The beta invite is apparently only good for the PS3 at the current moment and suggests that users have an internet connection capable of 5Mbps downloads or faster.

PS3 games will also be the first games to be available for streaming with Playstation Now with the possibility of titles for older systems coming later. Sony demoed The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls at CES though there it is currently unknown if those titles will be included in the beta.

When Playstation Now launches this summer, games will be available to rent individually or played as part of a subscription plan. Details on pricing have not yet been revealed though. Eventually, the service will be extended to other Playstation devices along with Sony Bravia TVs and Sony smartphones.
