PlayStation Now to stream PS4 games later this year

This will change later this year as Sony has announced that users will be able to stream PS4 games to their PS4 and PC.

At the moment, there's 483 PlayStation 3 games in the PlayStation Now catalog. Sony has yet to specify which PS4 games will be included in PlayStation Now's first wave - or when the feature will launch to all users - although the service currently offers a wide array of titles for the console's predecessor.

Besides the PlayStation VR unit itself and the PlayStation Camera, all you'll need is a PS4 (the recently released Slim version, the three-year-old original or the ultra-powerful PS4 Pro will do), a PS4 DualShock 4 controller and a 6-foot by 10-foot play space that's well lit, but not too bright. While we can only speculate on the timing, it is likely Sony will wait a certain amount of time before it puts certain PS4 games on PS Now. Sony says more information will be coming around the bend as we get closer to launch, but in the next few weeks, it will be kicking off a private test for some PS Now subscribers.

If you have been one of the many folks who is deliberating over picking up the Sony PlayStation VR, now could probably the ideal time for you to finally make up your mind and make that purchase. As for the former, it means PC gamers could see greater value in PlayStation Now depending on how this is implemented.
