It's time to test Sony's new streaming service on the PlayStation 4.
The open beta for PlayStation Now kicks off today in the US and Canada. The beta has been closed since January, so for most gamers, this will be their first opportunity to test out the anticipated service.
Before you dive in, check out this new walkthrough video featuring commentary from senior director Jack Buser. There are over 100 games available via Now (with many more coming), and you can rent them for a variety of time periods and prices. Prices are as low as $1.99 and if you sample and then decide to purchase, your progress will be saved on Sony's cloud servers, which is a nice touch.
Buser also emphasizes that this is just a beta and that Now is still in the early stages. This is the time to provide Sony with valuable feedback, as he added:
"We're going to be listening closely to what the gamers tell us, and [PlayStation Now] will evolve over time."
Guess Home is sort of dead in the water now, so Jack went to do something else. 😉
