PlayStation Now beta launches on select Sony TVs next week

Sony's 4K Ultra HD Bravia television sets with PlayStation Now capability and select 1080p HDTVs will receive access to the game streaming feature with the launch of the Private Pilot Service on June 30 in the U.S., the company announced on its blog.

A selection of PS3 game titles will be available for individual rental at various periods and prices will be offered during the Pilot. The feature allows users to stream and play PS3 titles with a DualShock 3 controller through their TV. The service is expected to stream PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PS3 games to PlayStation 4, PS3, PlayStation Vita and other non-PlayStation devices in the future.

The line of nine Bravia TV models from three different Bravia series are available now, Sony announced. Models range from 49 to 85 inches wide and are priced between $2,099 and $24,999.

The Gaikai-powered PlayStation Now service was showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. Beta invites for the feature began rolling out in January and entered private beta on PlayStation 4 May 20.
