PlayStation Now, the service that lets you stream games right to your console, is now available for PS4 users to download.

The service is subscription based and offers a 7-day trial before starting at $20/month to play 100+ PS3 games. PlayStation now finally brings PS3 games to the PS4, which doesn’t support backward compatibility directly.

Owners of the PS4 can download the app and start streaming games right now; it’s an all-you-can-eat subscription, meaning you can play as many games as you want without limitation.
