How it works

PlayStation Now streams PS3 games directly to your device in a matter of seconds, with no need to sit and wait for the game to download.


Supported Devices

The PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and select Bravia televisions support PlayStation Now. Click here for more information about PS Now on Bravia TV's. Additional devices to be added at a later date.

The PS4 supports both individual rentals and a subscription-based model. Individual game rentals are accessed via the PlayStation Store, while monthly-subsciption games are accessed through the PS Now app on the console. To learn more about PS Now subscriptions, watch this video.

While you must sign-up for the subscription service on the PS4, once you start a game on the PS4, you can play it on any other PS Now-enabled device; to do this make sure you have played the game at least once on the PS4, then on your other device go to [PS Now] > [My PS Now Games] > [Play History] and select the game from the list.

On the PS3 and PS Vita, you simply go to the PlayStation Store and choose the PlayStation Now menu option to rent and play individual games.
