Shawn Layden, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, announced at the Sony E3 2014 press briefing that PlayStation Now will be available as an open beta for PlayStation 4 owners in North America on July 31.

Access to the open beta will then be available to PS3 and Vita owners shortly thereafter. By the end of the year, newer Sony Bravia TV models will also have access to PlayStation Now with the use of a DualShock 3 controller.

PlayStation Now, Sony's streaming game service, will have over 100+ PS3 games available to users including Dead Space 3, God of War: Ascension, Ratchet and Clank Into the Nexus and Ultra Street Fighter IV.

The beta will continue to be free, but no word has been released yet as to what the price will be or how long rentals will be available when the service goes live.
