Back at CES in January Sony revealed its Gaikai-based game streaming service called PlayStation Now. The service when released will let gamers play titles from PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 on PS Vita and the PlayStation 4. A closed beta kicked off later that month and since then not much has been revealed about PlayStation Now. A leaked video has surfaced online which shows off the service in all its glory.
The video is nothing like one expects leaked videos to look like. The beta tester who filmed this walkthrough did it very well, in fact if it wasn’t so evidently recorded off the screen some might even mistake it for an official trailer. That being said it should be kept in mind that this is after all a beta product. What you see might not be what you get in the final version.
The leaked PlayStation Now video takes us through the launch process, its user interface is a lot similar to that of the PlayStation Store. Beta tester is kind enough to browse through the available games catalog and even load and play some. A connection test will tell gamers if their connection is healthy enough to stream games on.
Sony has still not confirmed when it will publicly roll out PlayStation Now. Back in January the company only said that a public release would take place over the summer. If that timeline is correct then we shouldn’t have to wait for more than a couple of months.
