Private test begins in next few weeks.
Sony will soon bring Playstation 4 game streaming support to PlayStation Now.
Currently, PlayStation Now offers over 480 PlayStation 3 games (in certain regions – the service isn’t available in Australia and many parts of Europe), but soon the streaming service will add PlayStation 4 games to the library. Sony made the announcement on the PlayStation Blog, saying a private test for PlayStation 4 games on PlayStation Now will start in the next few weeks.
This year will see other significant changes to PlayStation Now as well. Sony is dropping hardware support for the service on PlayStation 3, Vita and TVs, meaning PlayStation Now will eventually only work on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
There is also new competition in the game subscription sector. Microsoft has unveiled Xbox Game Pass, which will let Xbox One owners download over 100 different Xbox One and 360 games for £7.99 / $9.99 a month.
PlayStation Now officially started back in 2014. The streaming service came to PC last year.
