PlayStation Now open beta hits UK, 2.99 to 7.99 for streaming rentals

Sony's game-streaming PlayStation Now service has finally reached open beta in the UK, with prices from £2.99 to £7.99 for 2 to 30 day rentals. Sony plans to bring its all-you-can-play subscription plans for PlayStation Now over to the UK later this summer.

Until then, the à la carte selection of PlayStation Now games includes Bioshock Infinite, Dead Space, Final Fantasy 13, Mirror’s Edge, Tomb Raider Underworld, and Ultra Street Fighter IV. You'll need a PS4 (or a compatible Sony Bravia TV or Blu-ray player), a DualShock 3 or 4 controller, and a broadband internet connection to play - Sony recommends a connection speed of at least 5 mbps for the best experience.
