The Playstation Now beta, previously available on the Playstation 3 since January 2014, expanded on May 20, 2014 into the Playstation 4. Players who registered for the PS Now Private Beta can keep an eye on their mailbox for a voucher code.

 

PS Now will launch in 2014 on the Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita and on select Bravia televisions. The service will later be released on more devices. PS Now provides a streaming service for the Playstation gaming library akin to apps that stream movies, television shows, and music but for video games. Additionally, PS Now provides the Playstation 4 with backwards compatibility, a feature that neither the Playstation 4 or Xbox One currently offers.

Playstation 3 owners who are interested in the PS Now Private Beta are encouraged to register because the testers are regularly increased. Players can register for the PS Now Private Beta here.

Accessibility Angle:

PS Now gives disabled players more options regarding both games and devices to play the games. More options are always a benefit to disabled gamers. Through PS now disabled players will be able to play games from previous Playstation console generations that may be more accessible as well as to access the Playstation gaming library without a console. However, disabled players should note that PS Now does require an internet connection capable of streaming content.
