Sony announce Playstation Now US launch – how long until the UK can play too?

Sony has revealed that from the 13th January, American gamers will be able to play over 100 PS3 titles on their PS4 on a Netflix-style “Playstation Now” all-you-can-eat subscription service.

The service works using streaming technology – with Sony running the games in the cloud, and sending the images back to consoles, and button presses back to the cloud. For the player, it should be pretty much like playing a game normally.

Supported games on the service includes the likes of Unchartered, NHL14 and The Last of Us.

The launch comes many months after we first heard about it – it appears to be much later than planned too – so British gamers probably shouldn’t get their hopes up for a while yet.
