PlayStation Now is a great way to play hundreds of PS3 games by streaming them right to your PS4 or your PC. Today Sony says that soon the catalog will be extended to include PlayStation 4 titles.

We're excited to announce that PS Now's catalog is set to grow even further, as we'll be expanding to include a new platform: PlayStation 4 games. All of the games in the service, including PS4 games, will be included with a single PS Now subscription. We'll share more information as we get closer to launch, so stay tuned.

There's no date attached saying when this is going to start, but Sony says that private testing will begin in the next few weeks. If you're a PS Now subscriber, keep and eye on your email to see if you are selected as part of the test group.

If you haven't tried PlayStation Now you can hit Sony up for a free seven-day trial and check it out.

  • Can I just play the damn PSOne classics I already have on my PS4, forget Now! It's good for PC ppl who don't own a PS4/PS3 to play those games but I'd suggest buying those games for cheap and owning them along with a PS3 vs Now any day.
  • Probably been addressed here before, but why are there PlayStation reports on here but not Xbox? I don't really care, just wondering if one relates to Android more than the other.
  • I believe it's since Sony has Android smartphones and PlayStation Android apps they are trying to relate them to one another.
  • I'll add to the Android related tidbit in that I have used PS4 Remote Play when I owned my Z5 and it's great. It streams at 720p(you can set to lower resolution if you want), and it works surprisingly well.
  • We have an entire website for the Xbox! Trust me, you need to hit Windows Central if you're an Xbox fan. Jez is a monster and is all over anything xbox.
  • Awesome, got it downloaded. Thanks!
  • I wish PS now would work on Android. Or at least the popular phones. It would be nice if you owned a game digitally then it would be in the library for PS now would be even better. But I guess that's just dreaming.
  • Maybe one day......
    This news is huge for the pc community
  • Oh wow... Great Android news.... WTH.. Trying to push ps on your readers much???
