Playstation Now Open Beta coming to Playstation TV, Vita on October 14


Sony is taking its cloud-based gaming service PlayStation Now to the next level. Sony made this announcement in a comprehensive FAQ about PS TV on the PlayStation blog.

The streaming game service will be extended to PlayStation TV and PlayStation Vita on October 14. Like the PlayStation 4, the PS TV will be providing the users with more than 150 titles to try out on both devices.

The PS TV launches in America on October 14. The microconsole will be priced at $99, though you can also buy a $140 premium pack that includes the system, a memory card, a DualShock 3 controller, and your choice of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time or Lego The Movie Video Game. Those who purchase the gadget will not only have access to the PlayStation Now Catalogue, but will also be able to play nearly 700 games that are compatible with the handheld.

To use the streaming game service, you need to have access to an Internet speed of at least 5Mbps speed as well as Dualshock 3 or 4 controllers.
