Sony opens PlayStation Now sign-up page

But it does not guarantee access to upcoming beta.

No Caption Provided

Sony has launched a website for users interested in getting the latest information about the company's just-announced cloud-based streaming service PlayStation Now.

Leaving your name, email, address, and PlayStation Network ID will allow you to receive "exclusive information" about PlayStation Now, but no other details are available.

Sony will offer a beta for PlayStation Now starting at the end of the month, but it's not clear how the company will choose participants. Signing up at this website does not guarantee you access.

PlayStation Now is Sony's Gaikai-powered streaming game service that will allow users to rent back-catalog games individually (or through a subscription package) and play them instantly via the cloud. The service launches in full this summer in the United States on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Support for PlayStation Vita, Bravia TVs, other Sony devices, as well as non-Sony devices like iPads, iPhones, and other Android devices will come later. We tried the service last night in Las Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show and will have more coverage ahead.
