PlayStation Now isn’t dead yet—Sony’s just added 105 new games to the expensive streaming service, including a ton from Capcom (Resident Evil, Lost Planet, etc.) among other publishers.
PlayStation Now, the exorbitantly expensive service that allows people to rent and play PS3 games on their PlayStation 4s, is finally taking steps to be... well, actually usable.
Starting today, PS3 owners will get the chance to try out the open beta of PlayStation Now streaming service. God of War: Ascension, inFAMOUS, and the recently released Ultra Street Fighter IV will be joining the 150 or so games currently in the PlayStation now catalog.

PlayStation Now went into an open beta earlier this week in the U.S. and Canada. So now that the PlayStation 4-owning public has had a chance to try out Sony's new game-streaming service, we want to hear about it from all you wonderful netizens.
Right now, on your PlayStation 4, you can enjoy 90 days of the PS3 racing game F1 2013 for the low, low price of $49.99.

Way back in February 2013, when Sony first announced the PlayStation 4, they talked a bit about their partnership with the streaming company Gaikai. With the power of the cloud, Sony said, we'd all be able to stream PS1, PS2, and PS3 games.
Sony has added prices to the beta for their PlayStation Now streaming service, and though these are experimental numbers—it's a beta, after all—the current prices are insane.
Back in January, Sony announced Playstation Now, a system that lets you stream older Playstation games. It's in beta now, so you can finally watch it in action.
Starting next month, PlayStation owners will be able to play Sony's first-party back catalog via the PlayStation Now service.
Announced earlier this week, Sony's PlayStation Now service will stream cloud-based games to Sony consoles, handhelds, TVs and more. PlayStation Access put together this lovely little primer covering the how, what and whens of PlayStation Now.
Look, Sony, all I want is to play Mark of Kri again. On my Vita this time. Whenever I want.
