Sony has announced that PlayStation Now will launch on PlayStation 3 on May 12, 2015.
PlayStation Now is a cloud streaming service; PS Now allows PlayStation 4 users, and soon to be PS3 users to stream PS3 games to their console. You can either rent out the games individually (at various prices), or buy a subscription ($19.99 for 1 month or $44.99 for 3 months).
New games are added to PS Now each month, for example this month the new additions are: Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce, F1 2014, Farming Simulator, Fat Princess, and Sanctum 2. You can read the full list of PS Now titles here.
Personally, if I still owned a PS3, I wouldn’t be using PS Now on it, though I am a big fan of owning my games physically. The only people I’d think this would be for are people who want to try lots of different games they haven’t played yet by getting a PS Now subscription. Nevertheless, I feel like PS Now is a much better fit on PS4 and I don’t see many PS3 users using it.
