PlayStation Now UK Closed Beta Begins this Spring


May 4, 2013
Sony has opened registration for private beta tests of its PlayStation Now service in the UK.

Those with a PlayStation 4 and a PlayStation Plus subscription can register their interest to take part through the link here. Those who do not have a PS4, or those who are not currently subscribed to PS Plus, can still register their interest and receive further instructions at a later date.

While the private beta is free of charge, Sony UK says it will only be available to certain customers, likely based on what region they are based in. A broadband connection with a minimum 5MB speed is required.

Beta tests for PlayStation Now will commence this spring, Sony added. During this period, there will be a wide selection of games on offer, such as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, The Last of Us, God of War Ascension, Rayman Legends, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package, Just Cause 2, The Walking Dead, and Dirt 3.

PlayStation Now is an experimental service that can stream gameplay content to consoles via remote servers, eliminating the requirement to download and wait for games. In the US, players can either rent individual titles, or subscribe to an all-access library for $20 per month.
