Final Fantasy on your 4K

PlayStation Now will be available on Sony 4K TVs, and certain 1080p models beginning June 30th.
As announced on Sony’s blog, owners of those TVs will only need a Dualshock 3 controller to play the PlayStation 3 titles offered on Sony’s streaming game service – no console required. Sony is calling this their Private Pilot Service.
PlayStation Now has been in a closed beta, with a handful of games offered with several pricing tiers, depending on the length of the rental. Sony says there will be an open beta for PlayStation 4 on July 31st. The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita will also get an open beta, though no date has yet been announced.
IGN recently went hands-on with PlayStation Now. Though it’s still a work in progress, we found it promising.
