An open beta of the streaming game service will launch on PS4 in mainland US and parts of Canada on July 31, before expanding to PS3 from September, followed by Vita and PlayStation TV by the end of this year.


Over 100 games will be available at launch, initially for rental, with subscription options planned in the future.

Sony said: "SCE will work with its publishing partners to test various rental periods and prices, depending on how and when players would like to game.

"For example, there will be shorter rental periods priced as low as US$2.99, and most titles will be between US$2.99 and US$19.99.

"As with all content published on PlayStation platforms, publishers and developers will ultimately decide their game price points."

It has been reported that the PS Now European launch won't occur until the first quarter of 2015.

Sony said on Monday that it "will continue to prepare for the delivery of the PS Now service in Europe and Japan".
