Sony’s PlayStation Now service streams classic PlayStation games to tablets, phones and more

Sony PlayStation Now Streaming Service

Sony’s game streaming service has been a bit of a mystery ever since it was announced last year, but Sony executive Andrew House took the stage at CES on Tuesday to reveal that the Gaikai-based service will be titled PlayStation Now, and a closed beta will begin at the end of the month. PlayStation Now will allow gamers to access classic titles from the PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 via a streaming service on both the current generation PlayStation 4 and Vita consoles along with televisions, tablets, smartphones and other connected devices. The popular PlayStation 3 titles The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls are playable on Bravia TVs and PlayStation Vitas on the CES show floor. The full rollout of PlayStation Now is expected to start this summer.
