The site mentioned new invites to people not in the ps3 beta.

The way it was worded it seemed that being in the ps3 beta did not guarantee a code for the ps4

Does the email say ps4 or ps3? My email said ps3. I don't have a ps3 anymore so I guess I'll wait.

You are right, it is ps3.

Sony says the current codes, old and new, only work for the PS3. Everyone who is in on the PS3 beta will eventually get a PS4 code though.

The code works on PS4 though. If you put it in through the store, it redeems and shows the PS Now Beta, but the download box is grayed out.

I am mad they took off Catherine the day I got the code.

The non-disclosure form you agreed to doesn't allow comments on the beta outside of the official private forums. Speaking of which, there was an updated form we had to re-agree to yesterday.

I have a code for PS4 but don't have a PS4. Is it as easy as sending it to one of you?

Probably not. It is likely tied to your PSN account.

While I'm crossing my fingers for this service to be a disaster, if it does succeed, I hope Sony reconsiders the Vita TV. Its only chance in the West is if it's marketed primarily as a cheap Playstation streaming box.

Serving as a PS4 extender, its video streaming capabilities, and Playstation Now is its best chance of being viable after failing overseas since there's not much of a market for playing a limited selection of Vita software and PSP downloads on your tv in the West.

While I'm personally unimpressed with the Vita's offerings and imagine any reasonable gamer familiar with the situation would agree, that was more in reference to Vita games specifically having to support the Vita TV.

PS4 beta installed... was hoping for some bigger PS3 games to try out (like maybe an Uncharted, GoW or TLoU).

I got in on this beta yesterday, but am still unable to access the forums for it. I verified the SEN ID and I thought a message popped up that said I would receive another email that would allow me access. Does that sound about right regarding how the process works? Does anyone one recall the steps on getting into the forums? Thanks!

I got my beat access code last night as well. Played one game for a few minutes and the service seems to work. Wish we could talk about the service here because I have no interest in using the Sony forums.

Sony's lost me as a beta tester, I'm not paying real money for a beta.

The prices are not that bad and I'd love to see something like this come to all games in the PSN Store. It would be great to have the option to rent or buy the digital version of games like Watch Dogs or The Show and I think it would entice many people to move from disc to digital. If I could rent the digital version of games for around $15 for 30 days, I'd be tempted to drop GameFly.

The problem I have with them implementing the pricing now is because a beta is meant to test the software for bugs, not to start turning a profit from testers. Money is already really tight for my family so, I wouldn't be able to afford to test many games. Sony has essentially priced me out of the beta but, even if I could afford to rent many games, I have no interest in paying for a beta... ever.

Do you know, if you can use PSN cash to pay for the rentals?
