The first round of beta invites for PlayStation Now, Sony's cloud-based game-streaming service, are being sent out to a limited number of PlayStation users, Sony confirmed with Polygon today.
Reports of the invites first surfaced when users on social networks and community forums were posting screenshots of the invites they received. According to the invite, chosen beta participants require a PlayStation 3 and a broadband connection with a minimum speed of 5Mbps. When approached for comment, Sony was unable to confirm at the time of writing how many users the initial beta will involve.
The Gaikai-powered service will allow streaming of PlayStation 3 games later this year, with support for original PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 4 games expected to follow. Earlier this month, Sony launched a website for users to register their interest to be the first to know about the service.
