Revealed at CES in January, PS Now will initially stream PS3 games (other platforms to follow) to PlayStation systems, Sony Bravia TVs and, in the future, other Sony and non-Sony devices.

Sony will launch the service in North America this summer. It has been reported that the PS Now European launch won't occur until the first quarter of 2015.

PS Now will enable customers to rent individual games or pay for full library access via a yet to be confirmed subscription fee. In mid-March, game rental options were spotted on the US PS Store, seemingly confirming that the service will let users stream rented titles for one, seven or 30 days.

For a "low latency, high-quality gaming experience", Sony recommends that PS Now users have at least a 5Mbps connection.
