How Do You Apply for the PlayStation Now Beta in North America?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Sign up for Sony's new service

Speculation suggested that Sony was brewing up a storm for CES 2014 this week, and while we didn’t get a look at the Japanese giant’s oft-rumoured virtual reality sensor, the platform holder at least poured down a veritable hail storm of information regarding its cloud streaming service PlayStation Now. Among some of the nuggets outlined, the organisation hinted that the online innovation’s set to enter open beta in North America later this month. So, how do you sign up?

Well, the firm’s yet to confirm anything official, but a website allowing you to register for more details pertaining to the platform certainly looks promising. You’ll need to enter your name, address, email information, and PlayStation Network account details – more than you’d ordinarily need for a bog-standard newsletter. It’s probably important to be honest here, as the organisation will no doubt want to test the service nationwide.

It’s also worth pointing out that the page doesn’t explicitly mention that applicants will obtain access to the beta, but you can’t do any harm by registering. At the very least, entering your details will ensure that you’re contacted with regular information regarding the sign-up process. And you just never know – you may end up with a code in your inbox at the end of the month. Are you hoping to participate in the PlayStation Now test?

Thanks, signed up just in case. I got a cool black PS t-shirt in the mail after Sony Rewards (or whatever it was called) folded after a few months. My 1,002 trophies probably don't merit a beta test though.

@WickedKnightAl I know how sad!!! I tried to sign up but once it asked for zip code and couldn't put in a letter, I kinda got the hint it was only for US citizens.
PushSquare can change it to USA in the title instead of North America this time, thank for thinking of us Canadians, though

Thanks for the reminder. I tried to sign up earlier but kept getting an error, It worked this time.

Stupid website, requiring first names to be at least 3 characters long. Ended up having to type in my middle initial.

I used to be apart of online during the beta phase. I wonder how the latency with Playstation Now compares to online.
