PlayStation Now Enters Open Beta on PlayStation 4 with a Total of 123 Games - Walkthrough Video Explains How to Access it

The Wait is finally over, as of July 31st, the open beta for Sony's PlayStation Now, the most anticipated Gaikai-based video game streaming service which provides access to PlayStation content on PlayStation consoles and Sony TVs, has gone live for all the PlayStation 4 users based in the US and Canada only, though the service will soon be made available in other regions too. The announcement was made on the official PlayStation Blog.

PlayStation Now has been in closed beta since January 2014, but now it has entered the open beta, allowing all users of the latest console to access games that were released on Sony's last-gen console. According to the Japanese platform holder, the service will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 console for now, but it will soon be coming to other PlayStation platforms as well such as PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV.

To guide you and help you get up to speed on everything, Sony has officially released a PlayStation Now walkthrough video, featuring commentary from Jack Buser, who is the senior director for this service. The concept of PlayStation Now is pretty simple, you can rent PlayStation 3 games for time periods ranging from 4 hours to 90 days, and stream them directly to your PlayStation 4 console for now, but after the full release, the streaming will be available on other PlayStation devices and selected Sony TVs as well.

Sony has stated that these prices can be subjected to change and that a $1.99 tier will be added in the future.
