For some time now the PlayStation Now service has been in a closed beta for PlayStation users, and now it is open to everything thanks to Playstation opening up the service to all PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 owners.

PlayStation will also be allowing some Sony Bravia TVs and Blu-ray players to access the service.

In case you don’t know what it is, PlayStation Now is a cloud streaming platform from Sony that allows the user to stream games live from Sony’s servers and play it as if it was actually installed on your machine.

Saves from the games that you rent will also be stored on the Sony service.

To do this your console, TV and Blu-ray player will receive 720p video, whilst Sony’s servers will receive your controller codes.

To play games you are required to have a DualShock 3 or DualShock 4 controller, and Sony recommends that you have a minimum broadband connection of 5Mbps. Sony will also be allowing owners of select Sony Bravia TVs that can run PS Now to grab a free DualShock 4 until August 31st.

At the moment you can play games including Uncharted 3, Bioshock Infinitie and Mirror’s Edge, all of which are available to rent for between £2.99 and £7.99 depending on the length of rental, which can range from 48 hours to 30 days.

At the moment there is no subscription package.

You should be able to find the PlayStation Now service as one of the options on the PS Store on your console, or as an app on other devices from today in the UK.
