PlayStation Now PS Vita & PlayStation TV Open Beta Starts Next Week in US, Canada

With PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 owners already able to access the PlayStation Now open beta, it will only be a little while longer until the beta becomes available on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV.

As part of the big PlayStation TV FAQ on the PlayStation Blog, Sony confirmed the open beta extends to PS Vita and PS TV on October 14 in the United States and Canada, but as it is a beta, it’s “not available in all areas.”

Here’s what you need to play PlayStation Now on PS TV:

Users will need a steady broadband internet connection ranging between 5-12 Mbps and a SEN Account and a DualShock 3 or DualShock 4 controller.

A few other pieces of information about PS Now on PS TV revealed that “couch co-op and online multiplayer features are playable on PS Now as long as these features are supported by the game,” while “your game saves are stored indefinitely in our cloud storage system, allowing you to pick up where you last saved.”

PlayStation TV launches on October 14 in North America and November 14 in Europe.
