PlayStation Now beta adds rental options

New batch of games also made available through Sony's streaming service

The PlayStation Now beta has been updated to include game rental options, IGN reports.

As previously rumoured, the service will let users stream rented titles for one, seven or 30 days, although prices have yet to be confirmed. Alternatively, users will be able to pay for full PS Now library access via a yet to be revealed subscription fee.


The following games have also been added to the PS Now beta:

  • Ben Omniverse 2
  • Contrast
  • Eat Them!
  • Fuel
  • Grid
  • Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear
  • Lumines Supernova
  • Nights Into Dreams
  • PixelJump Racers 2nd Lap
  • PixelJunk Shooter 2
  • Puppeteer
  • Retro/Grade
  • Sniper Elite V2

Revealed at CES in January, PS Now will initially stream PS3 games (other platforms to follow) to PlayStation systems, 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.

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