PlayStation Now has been in a closed beta phase on the PS3 for some time. But when will the open beta roll out?
Well, as announced during Sony's E3 presentation, their new streaming service will debut on the PS4 in the US (and parts of Canada) on July 31, 2014. It will then come to the PS3 in September, followed by the Vita and PlayStation TV at the end of the year.
The beta on PS3 has been going on since January, and Sony has appreciated the constructive feedback from testers. The beta on PS4 will initially feature over 100 titles "covering a wide range of genres," and Sony is currently working with their publishing partners to test certain rental periods and prices. Rentals could be as low as $2.99, and most titles will be priced between $2.99 and $9.99. This is definitely a very important new service for the PlayStation brand.
