PlayStation Now cloud streaming service announced

Gaikai adapted streaming service coming summer 2014.

PlayStation Now

Sony unveiled plans for PlayStation Now, its PlayStation streaming game service adapted from Gaikai, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today.

Due out this summer, the service leverages cloud-based technology in order to deliver a variety of popular PlayStation 3 game titles, first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles, and followed by PS Vita systems.

PlayStation 2 and original PlayStation titles are also planned.

In addition to PlayStation platforms, most 2014 U.S. models of Sony’s Bravia TV lineup will also support PlayStation Now. The service will eventually expand beyond PlayStation platforms and Sony devices, allowing users to stream PlayStation titles on numerous internet-connected devices.

Games can be rented by title, or users can choose a subscription that delivers added value with the ability to explore and play a large number of games across a variety of genres. The service will also support PlayStation Network features including multiplayer, trophies, and messages.

At CES, Sony is demonstrating PlayStation Now on Bravia TVs and PS Vita, streaming PlayStation 3 titles Beyond: Two Souls, God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, and Puppeteer to each platform.
