PlayStation Now 004

If you didn’t already know, PlayStation Now has been in private beta since January. The game streaming service meant for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS Vita and select Sony Bravia TVs has been played for more than 50,000 hours by those special few.

Those hours, though, have only gone by on the PlayStation 3. PlayStation Now is set to launch this summer, so Sony needs to test its functionality on other platforms. That means the PS4 is up next. The PlayStation Now private beta will expand to the PlayStation 4 tomorrow, May 20.

If you’re not in the beta program, have no fear. Sony also announced in the same post that it will be adding more beta testers as it expands the potential audience for this private trial. In order to be a tester, all you need to do is sign up.

If priced appropriately, PlayStation Now could be an amazing window into the exceptional history of the PlayStation platform. Imagine all the games you missed on the PSOne, PS2 and PS3 available on the PS4 and PS Vita. I’m excited just thinking about it.

PlayStation Now will launch this summer. We’ll have more on the service as it comes.
