PlayStation Now: PS4 Private Beta Starts Tomorrow

Peter Jamshidi's Avatar + Posted by Peter Jamshidi on May 19, 2014 // Director of Marketing, PlayStation Now

Update: With both PS3 and PS4 Private Beta’s now in effect, we sent out codes for both systems on May 20 as planned. We’re aware that some PS4 owners may have received a beta code for PS3 but don’t currently own that console. We’re working to send PS4 vouchers to everyone in the beta that received a PS3 voucher since January. These will be sent out in batches over the next week or so, please be patient. If you haven’t already registered and plan to, please make sure to tick off what console you own in the appropriate check box.

Hi all, since January, a growing number of PlayStation fans have been enjoying the Private Beta program for PlayStation Now, our streaming game service launching this summer.

Up until this point, our Private Beta for PS Now has been available on PlayStation 3 systems. We’re pleased to announce that the Private Beta program is expanding and will make its debut on PlayStation 4 systems on May 20. If you’ve registered for the PS Now Private Beta, keep an eye on your mailbox for a voucher code.

PS Now gives you the freedom to play select PS3 games like you already stream movies, TV, shows, and music – directly to your favorite PS Now compatible devices without any discs or downloads. The first supported devices launching in 2014 are PS4, PS3, select 2014 Bravia TVs, and PlayStation Vita, with more devices down the road.

The Private Beta program has been going great so far, and we want to give thanks to the testers that have participated – your valuable feedback is helping us make the service even better. Thus far, Private Beta testers have logged more than 50,000 gameplay hours discovering new games, rediscovering favorites and racking up Trophies!

We are also happy to announce that access to the PS3 Private Beta program will expand to a broader audience in the near future. If you aren’t a member of our Private Beta community yet, click here to register your interest. Please be patient if you’ve already registered but haven’t received an invitation yet. We are inviting more Private Beta testers on a regular basis.

We’re eager to launch PS Now more widely – stay tuned to this blog for more details. And remember, if you’re already in the PS Now Private Beta, we want to hear from you so post feedback / impressions in our private forums.

More coming soon!

So I got an email probably a month and a half ago saying I was invited in the closed beta. All I had to do was to to the Playstation.com website and fill out a really short survey of sorts and my code would be emailed which I did. However I have yet to see a code or anything resembling one.

An interesting question: Why not give out the PS4 Beta Codes to those participating in the PS3 Beta first?

Those currently participating, have a better understanding of the program & have already proven their worth.

I received an invite for the PS3 PS NOW beta on 04/21. I quickly accepted the invite and Sony said they’d send me an email with the Beta voucher. Well, it’s almost a month later now, and I still do not have that Beta voucher. I’ve been scouring my junk email as well to see if it’s in there. It’s not.

When will I be able to test PS Now on my PS3?

I got an email April 29th saying I was invited to participate in the PS3 Playstation Now Beta. It said I should expect an email with a voucher in “the coming days”.

I still haven’t received that email. My email hasn’t changed or anything.

How long does it typically take to receive the voucher?

I’m thinking about pre-ordering Wolfenstein on the PS4, will I be able to download it now and start playing at midnight, or will I have to wait until the store updates tomorrow? And if I do have to wait, what time does the store update?
