Sony has announced that its PlayStation Now streaming service will be receiving an update to allow for PlayStation 4 software support.
Currently, the subscription service offers over 480 PlayStation 3 games in certain regions (it’s not available in Australia and many parts of Europe), but will be upgraded to let users stream PS4 games. Sony made the announcement on the PlayStation Blog, revealing that a private test for PS4 games on PlayStation Now will begin in the next few weeks.
This news follows recent big changes to PlayStation Now, as Sony announced last month that support for the service is being dropped on PlayStation 3, Vita, and TVs, and that going forward it will only be accessible on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
Microsoft recently announced its own PlayStation Now competition in the form of Xbox Games Pass which, in exchange for £7.99 / $9.99 a month, will allow users to download over 100 different Xbox One and Xbox 360 games.Photo: Sony
