Who would have thought 20 years ago that one day down the road, one’s favorite video game could eventually end up being streamed from a server somewhere halfway across the world? I certainly did not see this coming, and always figured out that cartridges and CDs were the next best thing since sliced bread.
According to the email, the beta includes “exclusive access to test PlayStation’s game streaming service before its full launch and the opportunity to provide your regular feedback to the PlayStation Now team.” Sony recommends a wired internet connection and “a 5Mbps or higher speed broadband connection” in order to participate. After accepting, invited users will receive a beta voucher and instructions “in the coming days.” Beta sign-ups first opened earlier this month following the service’s surprise reveal during CES.
