PlayStation Now, using Gaikai’s cloud-based technology, will allow users to stream and play “popular hits and classic games” from the PS3 library, first on PS3 and PS4, and followed by PS Vita. Since January, users have been able to experience PS Now in its Private Beta program for the PS3, but now the program is expanding and will become available for testing on the PS4 as well.

“We’re pleased to announce that the Private Beta program… will make its debut on PlayStation 4 systems May 20,” Director of Strategic Planning Peter Jamshidi announced on the PlayStation Blog. “PS Now gives you the freedom to play select PS3 games like you already stream movies, TV, shows, and music — directly to your favorite PS Now compatible devices without any discs or downloads.

“The Private Beta program has been going great so far, and we want to give thanks to the testers that have participated– your valuable feedback is helping us make the service even better. Thus far, Private Beta testers have logged more than 50,000 gameplay hours discovering new games, rediscovering favorites and racking up Trophies!”

People who haven’t registered for a chance to receive a voucher code can sign up here. PlayStation Now launches this summer.  The first supported devices launching in 2014 are PS3, PS4, PlayStation Vita, and select Bravia TVs.
