I got one. But I am giving it to my friend. I already own every game anyway.
FamilyGuy  +   264d ago
I got an invite to the private beta BUUUUT my internet connection is way too slow to test this out properly.

I might just take my PS4 to a friends house to try it out lol.

I wonder what games will be available?

Oh damn, I hadn't read through these comments to realize how few of us actually got in. Now I feel bad about my consideration of selling the code.
Then again that just means it's even more rare/valuable >=)

I don't know what I'm going to do really, temporarily upgrade my internet for a month?
Use a friends internet?
Sell the code?
I'm so lost lol
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   264d ago
@FamilyGuy It will actually first start with the ps3 for the beta testing and then it will be tested on the ps4 followed by the psvita. Good thing I own all those so I can provide some feedback.
AnthonyF123  +   263d ago
Damn, Same Here :(
Abriael  +   264d ago
I can wallow with you since I'm in Europe and I won't get to touch it until 2015.

Look at it that way, you're luckier than I am :D
Veritas5784  +   264d ago
I got it....when I accept the Email and sign my ID it say's that I have to wait for a voucher code on my email. when BETA open register the CODE.
AceBlazer13  +   264d ago
Guess I'm in the wallowing club since my region may never even get it.
Bleucrunch  +   263d ago
@AceBlazer13 I think with the PS3 we were able to access the japanese ps store because we told the console we were in Japan instead of the states. Maybe you could do that with your console, trick it into thinking its in the states, then you can access that playstation store.

Keep us posted then, how does it work? Is it good?
Minato-Namikaze  +   264d ago
They are sending The actual codes later. This was just to accept the invitation.

Was there a previous sign-up or was it to random people with SEN accounts?
Minato-Namikaze  +   264d ago
There was kinda previous sign-up. But it asked if you wanted more "info" about PSNow, it didnt specifically ask you it you wanted to participate in the beta.
FamilyGuy  +   264d ago
I didn't register for anything recently as far as I can remember, just got this randomly.

Sense it's going to be a voucher code maybe I can sell it?
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   264d ago
@FamilyGuy You had to have registered yourself to actually get it. There's no way you just randomly received an email congratulating you.

Anyway, for those of you who haven't registered so you guys can be called up, hopefully, just give your gamer profile username and other info at this link here


They still have it up on their us.playstation.com so they might continue handing out confirmation emails and codes.
zippycup  +   263d ago
ps+ members are automaticaly enroled for all betas

all i got from sony was the one for geting the credit card lol
FamilyGuy  +   263d ago
I don't remember enrolling but maybe it was a long time ago?

I got invited to this beta, the ff14 arr beta and the dark souls 2 beta within the last few months. The FF14 arr beta is the only one I remember signing up for though.
impet25  +   264d ago
Friend of mine just called me and said he got one, He doesn't even have internet and he didn't even register...smh..lucky bastard
erick21093  +   263d ago
So then... how did he even know he got it if he doesn't even have internet?

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I'm pretty sure you need internet to check an email.... o.O
ColeMacGrath  +   264d ago
My region may never get PS Now.. :(
AlphaCentyros  +   264d ago
Perhaps your region will get "PS Later" ;)
Jihaad_cpt  +   264d ago

PSVita  +   264d ago

Well, I checked my e-mail full of hope, but I had nothing coming. Do they serve drinks at this pity party? If not that's okay; I brought my own.

Don't worry. I too am wading through salty tears.

xBraiNshOcK  +   263d ago
I got one! Got very excited when I recieved the email. I am proud owner of a ps3, vita, and ps4 right now.
NovasRevenge  +   263d ago
i got a code but i stil have my ps3 with most games, so heres my code

good luck to the first one to get it

ZombieKiller  +   260d ago
I didn't get a now code now. I hope it comes later so I can play now. If now came now, I would play now now.

:( Not very happy now.
SpiralTear  +   264d ago

I want one :( I don't want one to just pay it, I want to give lots of feedback
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   264d ago
Well, now we'll be hearing from gamers from their actual homes whether or not PS Now is a great experience. And so it begins.
Abriael  +   264d ago
Theorically we won't, as there's a NDA, but probably we will. Plenty.
Soldierone  +   264d ago
Dang, I hope its not like OnLive when its on wifi.... That was unplayable. I can't really hook my PS4 to Ethernet, the router is in another room....
Bathyj  +   264d ago
Of your careless neighbors house?
Soldierone  +   264d ago
Might as well be with OnLive. One time I sat literally right next to my route (a high end one none the less) and it still had crap connection.

I had it set up through Ethernet before, but we moved and the new house has an office area that isn't near my PlayStation.
FunAndGun  +   264d ago
You better put a hole in the wall and run that cable boy!
Mikeyy  +   264d ago
I second that. I would drill through floors and walls to run that Ethernet, I've done it everywhere I've lived.
R1V3N  +   264d ago
my router is on another level and i still have a cable running to it.
WeAreLegion  +   264d ago
Ya man. Your router is off the chain!
MajorGecko  +   264d ago
or change the channel on your wifi
XiSasukeUchiha  +   264d ago
Can't wait for this!
Sevir  +   264d ago
Ugh! No invite! :(
crs353  +   264d ago
Nothing here :"( Good luck everybody.
nerdman67  +   264d ago
Got the invite.
Time to wait and see what people what been expecting to blow everyone's minds
mafiahajeri  +   264d ago
My net wouldn't be able to support this so who cares...
ZombieKiller  +   260d ago
I care! My net supports it.
mrbojingles  +   264d ago
Wow, Dualshockers is practically on top of every major story on N4G. That's great for them but wow. They've got to be paying someone to post on N4G exclusively or something. Which isn't a bad thing at all, get yourself out there y'know. Seems like if you've got Playstation news to report there's really no point since DS probably beat you to it a long time ago.
stuna1  +   264d ago
I got Playstation Now! Oh my bad I meant to say I got a Playstation Now!

Cheer up guy it's just a little play on humor. One thing I know is Sony will do everything in their power to try to expedite services for those who don't initially get the service when it first rolls out. Also they're pretty good choosing when it comes to open Beta's, I've had invites to the majority of their Beta's even when I didn't opt in.

You never know it could be something in the works for those who don't have immediate access, who knows PS TV maybe.
FamilyGuy  +   264d ago
This is a private beta, open betas are for everyone and don't involve choosing.
My_precious  +   264d ago
WHERE IS MINE.... MINE.... MINE!!!!?????????
HighResHero  +   264d ago
Welp, looks like I might have to go buy a game instead. :D
Majin-vegeta  +   264d ago
My reaction of not getting in :(,
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   264d ago
didnt notice you had to have a PS3 in order to use the beta code. sold it to get my hands on the ps4 :(
FunAndGun  +   264d ago
hey friend, I have a PS3 still. hint, hint!
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   264d ago
lol i dont actually have the beta. i just went out of my way to sign up for the news letter.
impet25  +   264d ago
What? Why do you need a ps3?
-EvoAnubis-  +   264d ago
The beta is PS3 only.
xXtremeHDGamerXx  +   264d ago
I want a beta invite Sony!

I Got It!!!
Aleithian  +   264d ago
Got one :) I'll post what information I can, but I'll strictly abide by the non-disclosure agreement.

EDIT: It's worth noting that I didn't sign up for the Now Newsletter. I did buy a PS4 on Day 1 though, if that matters.

Ilovetheps4  +   264d ago
Congrats on getting in. I wish it was as simple as getting the PS4 on day one. I got the PS4 and PS3 on day one and didn't get in. I've never gotten into any of the betas. Oh well. Hope it's fun.
Aleithian  +   264d ago
The disclosure agreement is pretty strict. I'm not sure whether I can post excerpts, so I won't even try. But it's strict.

I honestly have no idea why I got one. But I'll put it through its paces. I have a 50/25 connection, which is significantly higher than the norm, so I don't know how universal my results will be.
Monolith  +   264d ago
Same here:(
I got into the Uncharted 2 and MAG beta though. Oh and Resistance 2.
remanutd55  +   264d ago
I got in...my dreams lol
svoulis  +   264d ago
Woo can't wait to try this on my Vita and PS4. Got the invite today. Codes aren't out yet just confirmation emails.
MikeGdaGod  +   264d ago
i used to get in all the betas when i was a Playstation GAP member...havent received one of those lucky emails in a while
Game0N  +   264d ago
I'm in.

The system seems to be randomized, quite similar to the Dark Souls 2 Network Test actually. I got a regular message through SEN and a follow-up email.
remanutd55  +   264d ago
Is the beta only available on the ps3?
Game0N  +   264d ago
No. All platforms. PS4 and Vita along with PS3.
moujahed  +   263d ago
TheFutureIsBlue  +   264d ago
=) Guess what n4g...

I didn't get one =(
captainexplosion  +   264d ago
Im a long time Plus subscriber with two PS3s, a Vita, and a PS4 amd I didn't get a beta invite.
Mikeyy  +   264d ago
Was there a sign up for the beta or are you good to go if Sony already emails you news and such?
PoSTedUP  +   264d ago
these are some of the happiest sad folks ive ever seen.
Brugal  +   263d ago
Sweet, I got the invite.
