The cloud-based gaming platform is currently available on the PlayStation 4 and offers streaming of games from multiple PlayStation platforms.
That means users will get around 150 PS3 games available to stream right out of the box, alongside all of that PSP, and PSOne content available through Sony’s digital platforms.
“PlayStation Now’s Open Beta for PS TV is scheduled to launch on October 14, 2014 to consumers in North America. It is also scheduled be available on PS Vita at this time,” Sony wrote in an extensive blog on its PlayStation US blog. “The Open Beta will launch with over 150 PS3 titles.”
The company says users will need a “steady broadband internet connection ranging between 5-12Mbps,” a Sony Entertainment Network account and a DualShock 3/4 controller.
The PS TV set-top box will arrive in Europe on November 14, exactly a month after it hits the United States, but Sony is yet to reveal exactly when PlayStation Now will be trailed outside of the US.
Back in August, Sony claimed it’ll be arriving in Europe at some point during 2015, with UK gamers getting first dibs.
“We’ve always said that we won’t introduce PlayStation Now in Europe until it can offer PlayStation quality,” explained Sony during a press conference at GamesCom 2014.
