If you’ve gone ahead and purchased one of Sony’s new 4k Ultra HD Bravia televisions, as well as some select 1080P HDTV’s you’ll be able to gain access to the beta for Sony’s new game streaming feature, PlayStation Now, starting June 30th.
PlayStation Now is a service that has a selection of PlayStation 3 (and soon to be PlayStation 2 and Vita) games that will be able to be rented for various prices and rental times ranging from just a few hours to a 90 days. The service will run directly from these Bravia televisions and only require a DualShock 3 controller, the same controller used for the PlayStation 3. This service will also be available to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita consoles.
While there have already been complaints about the pricing of these rentals for some of the PlayStation 3 titles it is expected that these will change to give a bit better value. The PlayStation Now closed Beta invites started rolling out in January shortly after the announcement during the latest Consumer Electronics Show.
