Sony Launches PlayStation Now Beta with Nine Games
While the full launch of the PlayStation Now service is hotly anticipated, the first wave of games in the beta may just cool expectations slightly. The closed beta invites for PS3 users went out last week and the early list of available games aren’t all the epic titles that people were hoping for.
Of the nine games that are available in the beta, three are first-party games and six are third-party games which should do a bit to quell concerns that third-party developers and publishers wouldn’t be on-board with PS Now.
From Sony Computer Entertainment, PS Now users can play Killzone 3, Puppeteer and Shadow of the Colossus. From third-party publishers, gamers can play Darksiders II, Disgaea 4, MX vs. ATV: Alive, Ninja Gaiden 3, Papo & Yo and Shatter. At CES in January, Sony also showed off The Last of Us, God of War: Ascension and Beyond: Two Souls but they aren’t currently on offer in the beta.
I haven’t seen any reports about the quality of the service in the wild yet but it was apparently very good at CES. The fact that Sony has a wide range of titles from a variety of publishers should also be taken as a good sign, even if PS Now doesn’t have scads of mega-popular triple-A titles on offer in the beta.
