Sony’s PlayStation Now service that was limited to streaming PS3 games till now, will soon stream PS4 games as well. The service will give access to a handful of PS4 games in the initial phase but expect the library to grow after Sony concludes the private beta test. Sony will send out an email to be a part of the private beta test if you’re an existing PS Now subscriber.
Currently, PS Now service can stream PS3 games, 483 to be exact, and most recently announced that the service will only work with PS4 and Windows PC. PS Now also supports cloud save that lets you sync the progress on PS4 and a Windows PC.
Although a good move, PS Now’s biggest hindrance is that it is a streaming-only service and if you’ve got an internet connection with monthly data cap or even less than stellar speeds, the whole gaming experience on PS Now is bound to suffer. However, Microsoft’s similar service, Xbox Game Pass allows users to download games and play them.
