Sony Announces PlayStation Now; Open Beta Starting This Month

During Sony’s keynote at CES 2014 in Las Vegas Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House announced that Gaikai’s streaming service will henceforth be called PlayStation Now.

The service will work on a broad range of devices like PS4, PS Vita and Bravia TVs, streaming a wide library of games including the critically acclaimed The Last of Us (that is already showcased at CES).

A beta testing phase in the United States has been announced for the end of January, while plans for Europe have not been revealed. The service itself is scheduled to go live in North America this summer.
