PlayStation Now Will Make Your Backlog Absolutely Enormous

Sony will stream hundreds of titles at launch
Sony’s super slick streaming service PlayStation Now will offer “hundreds of titles” at launch, reports IGN from a super secret pre-E3 event. Company spokesperson Todd Liss revealed the exciting tidbit in an interview with the aforementioned publication, reiterating that the Gaikai-powered on-demand gaming platform – which is currently in beta – will still launch this summer in North America.
The platform holder proved its commitment to the initiative by showing off two new games: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception on the PlayStation 4 and Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus on the Vita. The former was teased as part of a promotional image earlier in the year, which hinted that game rentals could cost between $4.99 and $5.99. Official pricing information is unavailable at this time.
We expect that to change at E3 next month, though, where a full rollout strategy is almost certain to be shared. Unfortunately, if you live in Europe, you may have to wait until at least next year before you can take advantage of the service, as the platform holder has suggested that it still has some infrastructural hurdles to overcome.
