PS Now open beta coming to America in July

An open beta for gaming streaming service PlayStation Now will be launching in America and parts of Canada in July.

This will launch on July 31st for PS4 before coming to PS3 in September. By the end of the year the service will be on PS Vita and PlayStation TV, too.

Further to this the platform holder has said it will soon begin a pilot service for consumers who have a PS Now-compatible TV in America.

Over 100 games are to be available to rent at launch. The platform holder says that also plans to offer subscription options in the future.

Sony also says that the price of games will be as low as $3 and go up to around $20.

Prior to this the platform holder had been holding a private beta in America for PlayStation 4 owners.

"SCE will work with its publishing partners to test various rental periods and prices, depending on how and when players would like to game,” said Sony.

"For example, there will be shorter rental periods priced as low as $2.99, and most titles will be between $2.99 and $19.99."As with all content published on PlayStation platforms, publishers and developers will ultimately decide their game price points."
