You can now register to beta test the PlayStation Now game streaming service in the UK

Sony has today confirmed that its streaming games service dubbed PlayStation Now (PS Now) will be available to some users in the UK this spring.

Initially, it will only be offered as a private trial to PS4 owners that register interest in taking part in the test. If you register interest but aren’t fortunate enough to be in the first wave, Sony said there will be later phases of the trial that you might well get into still.

For beta users, the service will be free and games like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, The Last of Us and God of War Ascension, Rayman Legends (Ubisoft), Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (Ubisoft), Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package (Koch Media), Just Cause 2 (Square Enix), The Walking Dead (Telltale) and Dirt 3 (Codemasters) will be available at launch.

All you’ll need is a PS4, Dualshock controller, a 5Mbps+ downstream connection and a little bit of luck.
