As it was announced back in CES, PlayStation Now is the first-ever game streaming service that's available on the home console. It allows users to quickly access a growing library of PlayStation 3 games from the cloud servers. And now, the PS4 open beta will be available to all PS4 owners within US and Canada.

The PS Now cloud gaming service will have around 100 PS3 games that will be tested hands-on for the beta testers. Among the games that will be tested are Dead Space 3, God of War: Ascension, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, Ultra Street Fighter 4, and Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus.

PlayStation Now senior director Jack Bruser said, "As part of this Open Beta, PS4 users will see PS Now titles fully integrated into PlayStation Store, available to be streamed for various rental durations. Since we're still in Beta, and in the very early days of PS Now, we plan to continue to collect feedback during this Open Beta phase to make further refinements to the service, so please provide us feedback once you've experienced the service,".

The PS Now subscription costs from $2.99 to $14.99, and these may still go down to include 4-hour rentals for just $1.99.
