Revealed on PlayStation Blog Sony plans to add PS4 games to the streaming service, with a beta planned in the upcoming weeks. PlayStation Now subscribers can partake in the beta and should keep their eyes out for an invitation via email.
Sony hasn't given a date but plans to release the update in 2017, most likely before the holiday season.
“We’re excited to announce that PS Now’s catalog is set to grow even further, as we’ll be expanding to include a new platform: PlayStation 4 games,” said Brian Dunn, Senior Marketing Manager at PlayStation Now. “All of the games in the service, including PS4 games, will be included with a single PS Now subscription.
