PlayStation Now streaming game service now available in beta

The highly-anticipated public beta of the PlayStation Now game streaming service is now available to gamers in North America.
Currently, the beta is only for PlayStation 4 users, although Sony confirmed that it will reach the PS3, PS Vita and PS TV in the coming months.

At launch, there are over 100 titles available to rent, and Sony says the prices will be based on how long your rental is for. A speedy 4-hour rental will cost $2.99, a week rental will cost $5.99, a month rental costs $7.99 and a three-month rental will set you back $14.99.

After reading numerous complaints and feedbacks, the company is also considering an unlimited subscription plan. "We've heard you loud and clear for an update on a PS Now subscription option and want to reassure you that we are working on it," said Jack Buser, Senior Director for PlayStation Now.

The full catalog will be PlayStation 3 games, and it is unclear if older titles will ever be added.

Unlimited subscription plan?... don't hold your breath. They seem keen on a per game payment to me.

This kind of makes the Playstation redundant hey? haha
