by on13 January 2014 5654 times

In July last year, Sony has spilled some cash and bought a service for streaming of video games called Gaikai, after which was announced that  they have serious plans for it. Even then it was clear to almost everyone that Sony is preparing something big, and now we have got official confirmation.

Sony at this year's CES in Las Vegas announced PlayStation Now, a service that should be available to players in the US sometime this summer (information about availability in Europe still does not exist) and allow them to play older generation PlayStation games on their own devices - PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita and even selected TVs, tablets and smartphones.

Now PlayStation gamers will have an easy access to games they loved and that they can not play on the hardware they currently have. Access to the games will be available through subscription or individually. Last year's hits like The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls will be among the first games available on the service, which shows that Sony chose the provide players with both quality and interesting service. Beta testing of the services will begin later this month, and CES visitors had the opportunity to try it out this week.
