Posted by Peter Jamshidi on May 19, 2014 // Director, Strategic Planning Hi all, since January, a growing number of PlayStation fans have been enjoying the Private Beta program for PlayStation Now, our streaming game service launching this summer.
This service could be huge if it's well handled. I hope it receives a lot of support from devs and become successful
PSNOW has actually just broke PSN. I just wanted to sit down and play after watching Game of Thrones and PSN is SCREWED. god damnit sony. Edit: why disagree? I'm not lying, i want to play god damnit before I go to bed. PSN is a joke sometimes, especially now i'm paying for the privilege for constant maintenance and downtime.... http://downdetector.com/sta...
Sorry but that is not my experience. I'm having no trouble with PSN at all. If you are having that "isolated problem" as you say then why don't you just sell your PS4 and buy a X1 and stop complaining about it?
Oh there will be an announcement at E3!
Only if it was monthly, like netflix i will be hype
They have said there will be a subscription offer and just a game by game option. How much each 1 will cost is still undecided.
Monthly or a year will be a steal.
If its subscription is priced competitively with gamefly, it's definitely something I'll be interested in. Rental service with no supply constraints or waiting for physical mail delivery times? Yes, please.
Considering it's slated to launch in the summer, I'm sure e3 will have some more information like pricing.
Sorry, n4g bugged out.

Sounds like they're treating it like the amazon prime/ instant watch program.
I want in this time I never got in on the ps3...
Anyone know how I can get a code? I didnt get invitee but the thirst to try this is real.
there's a registration link on the site. here http://us.playstation.com/p...
just registered. hope i get in.
I really hope I get in this for PS4 signed up I wanna say two months ago and never got it for PS3.
I hope i qualify for the beta test.
I got my invite April 21st I am still waiting on the code I am supposed to get a month later.
I just got my invite a while back too, don't remember the exact date, but this has my hopes up. I really wanted to get in on the PS4 beta!
If I'm already in the PS3 beta, will I be in the PS4 beta?
I was told they will send out ps4 beta codes to new players as well as people who were already in the ps3 beta but not everyone.
Helpful bubble to you!

If you are in this boat, be patient, and look for a code coming to your email inbox over the next week or so.
Helpful bubble to you, as well. :)
Signed up for the Beta a while ago for PS3, hope I can get in for PS4, that'd be awesome.
im cautiously optimistic about this service. i really don't want it to be expensive and i really want it to be better than OnLive. Hopefully those qualifying for the beta will keep those of us who aren't in the loop.
And I still HAVENT gotten my code... Wtf Sony why u gotta tease me like that... Sending an invitation but never the code :((
From the feedback so far it is a great service and it works well. Can't wait for this!
I'm just glad I can already play the games that I have rather than having to rely on a crappy service that deals with streaming the games at low quality with input lag.
I'm in the beta and I'll be the first to tell you I had absolutely no input lag when playing games. I had minor screen tearing but the went away after a few seconds.
Great service, that works well in both single and multiplayer (down 10mbps/up 1mbps). It has lots of potential. Can't wait to have access to those 20 games on my ps4.
not for Canada I guess :(
Microsoft tires to remove resale = OMG it's the end of the world. Sony tries to remove resale = OMG we love you Sony! Onlive tries to offer game streaming = OMG we hate you go die in a fire. Sony offers game streaming = OMG we love you Sony!
The whining from from Xbox fanboys about PS fanboy's hypocrisy is getting more annoying than the hypocrisy itself.
LOL did you call me an xbox fanboy haha I DARE you to read some of my other comments.
Lots of rallies for sony. I hope you guys buy a lot of accounts so sony can start offering contract super computer consoles if we are going to be about power. I need to ask sony what the business plan is or the rip for the revenue split. If they put indie games on this it would be worth it.
Just signed up now
Know people were waiting on this. I am still waiting on my PS3 invite.
Just got my ps3 code
