Folks in the United States have had open access to PlayStation Now beta for a few months now and today it’s being extended to users in the United Kingdom. PlayStation Now is a game streaming service from Sony that lets users stream PlayStation 3 games over the internet on various PlayStation devices as well as smart TVs from Sony and even Samsung. The service is now in open beta for users located in the United Kingdom.
While PS Now subscribers in the U.S. have access to a subscription service which lets them stream as many games as they want for a set charge, initially during the open beta in the UK games will only be offered for rental individually but Sony does say that a subscription service will go live later this summer.
The company is also working to bring PlayStation Now to other devices such as the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV later this year.
A wide variety of games will be available to PS Now users covering a host of publishers and genres, they will be available for two or 30 day rentals initially for £2.99 to £7.99, prices will vary according to the title.
PlayStation 4 owners across the pond can now find PlayStation Now on the PS4 console Store.
