Gamescom to Feature PS Now?

Until now, the PlayStation Now is enjoying beta mode, but it seems that Gamescom may bring in more announcements about Sony's upcoming cloud-based streaming service.

Gamereactor reports that in an exclusive chat with SCE's Jim Ryan, he had teased something that is cooking up with the PlayStation Now that involves Europe.

"We are working on the introduction in Europe... I suggest that you come to Gamescom, we might possibly, possibly have something to say about PlayStation Now," said Ryan to Gamereactor.

While no other detail was teased, there have been previous reports circulating about the PlayStation Now, specifically one involving the recently leaked rental prices for the service.

'Destiny' Won't Be Open to All with PS Plus

The PS4 and PS3 consoles have a timed edge over the Xbox One and Xbox 360 when it comes to Bungie's "Destiny," as there will be a beta run starting July.

And this fact already has PS4 and PS3 gamers excited, though there is an error in a previous announcement by PlayStation. While the announcement has stated that any PlayStation Plus member "will be able to fully experience Destiny and its incredible multiplayer," PlayStation Universe reports that community manager Chris Owen has already taken the initiative to correct the mistake via Twitter.

"Update: The Destiny Beta will be available via pre-order only. The blog post is worded incorrectly and will be amended."

The official launch date of "Destiny" remains September 9 across all platforms with PS4 and PS3 getting exclusive content and even an offered bundle for the title.
