PlayStation Now beta 2.0 released with next game wave

The PlayStation Now beta 2.0 has been released with the next wave of games available to the testers.

Currently only available in the US to select testing groups, the second beta update to the PlayStation Now streaming service has been made available.

According to information received by DualShockers from an anonymous tipster, the recent 2.0 update was only 42MB but made some changes to the service including the game line-up.

A total of 19 games are now available via the PlayStation Now beta, with the full list looking something like this:

  • Alien Rage
  • Critter Crunch
  • Dead Island
  • Dead Nation
  • Dead or Alive 5
  • Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten
  • Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
  • Guacamelee!
  • Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond
  • Order Up!!
  • PAYDAY: The Heist
  • PixelJunk Monsters
  • Puzzle Quest: Galactrix
  • Real Steel
  • Rise of the Guardians: The Video Game
  • Shadow of the Colossus
  • Shatter
  • WipEout HD
  • Zeno Clash 2

Previously, games like Killzone 3, MX vs ATV: Alive and Ninja Gaiden 3 all made the PlayStation Now beta list, but have since been removed with the update.

However, the initial beta game list only included 9 titles, so it’s interesting to see how PlayStation is developing the offering.

PlayStation Now was announced in January as a Gaikai-based game streaming service, which will eventually offer the ability to stream PlayStation titles from the original PlayStation all the way up to PS4 games.

You’ll only be able to stream titles to the PS4 and PS3 initially along with the majority of Sony Bravia TV 2014 models, but Sony plans to add PS Vita compatibility at a later date.

There is no information as to when PlayStation Now will be made available in the UK, but speaking to TrustedReviews PlayStation UK head Fergal Gara teased the UK launch is a priority.

“Why wouldn’t we do our best to bring new experiences to the UK as quickly as we can. I don’t know, but I am certainly hungry to bring every strong PlayStation experience to our gamers as quick as I can.”

The full launch in the US will start in the summer.
