Sony is at last ready to leverage Gaikai's streaming technology, with SCEI president Andrew House officially unveiling the PlayStation Now service at this week's CES event. PlayStation Now is intended to allow players to stream back catalogue PlayStation, PS2 and PS3 titles from that increasingly trendy cloud across a variety of Sony products including of course the PS4 and Vita. Other devices will include smartphones, tablets and even the televisions themselves.
Only Naughty Dog's The Last of Us and Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls for the PS3 will be demonstrated at the CES floor; Sony has yet to reveal a list of titles which will actually be supported by PS Now. The good news is that multiplayer and Trophies will still be supported over PS Now for any titles featuring these.
A beta test of PS Now will commence by the end of January for the US only, with an official launch planned for later this summer. Exact pricing details weren't revealed, but users will be able to rent titles individually or gain greater access to more titles via subscription.
