PlayStation Now to launch with “hundreds of titles”

PlayStation 3 games start appearing on the PlayStation 4 Store.

PS3 Games on the PS4 Store

PlayStation Now, Sony’s PlayStation game streaming service, will launch this summer with “hundreds of titles,” Sony said.

That is, according to Sony Computer Entertainment’s Todd Liss, speaking with IGN during an invite-only PlayStation event today.

The service is currently in closed beta. The launch is planned for this summer on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, with PS Vita and other devices including TVs and tablets to follow.

Earlier today, some web-goers spotted PlayStation 3 games—including Dead Island: Riptide, The Last of Us, Far Cry 3, Grand Theft Auto V, Payday 2, Dead Space 3, and Diablo III—appearing on the PlayStation 4 PlayStation Store. Download options were not available, but we suspect they’re some of the titles you’ll be able to rent through PlayStation Now when it launches.
