CES: Sony Debuts Streaming Games

Sony Computer Entertainment is giving fans a first look at its new streaming game service at the Consumer Electronics Show this week in Las Vegas, Nev.

PlayStation Now, which leverages cloud-based technology to let users access a roster of games via Internet-connected devices, will launch in the U.S. this summer.

The service will not only allow players to play the same game on different devices, but will also let gamers rent titles or get their games through a subscription service.

At launch PS Now will offer games for PlayStation3 and PlayStation4 devices, followed by the PlayStationVita.

In addition to PlayStation platforms, most 2014 U.S. models of Sony's Bravia TV will also support the service, and Sony plans to eventually expand PS Now beyond Sony devices.

"We are thrilled to deliver entertainment experiences only possible from PlayStation through our new streaming game service," says Andrew House, president and group chief executive office, Sony Computer Entertainment. "PS Now will allow users to engage in the world of PlayStation, whether they're existing fans or have never owned a PlayStation platform."
