PlayStation Now has only supported a couple dozen games at best during closed testing, as best we can make out, but Sony expects it to launch with a much more extensive catalogue.

Sony?s Todd Liss told IGN that PlayStation Now will support ?hundreds of titles? at launch.
 
At the closed-doors Sony event during which the boast was made, Sony showed Uncharted 3: Drake?s Deception being played on PS4, and Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus on Vita, via PlayStation Now. So that?s kind of cool.
 
Weirdly, the event seems to have coincided with a strange blip on the PlayStation Store. If you log into the North American storefront and check the ?Day-1 Digital? section, you cna now filter for PS3 games.
 
Confused? us too. You?ll get a couple of results ? Dead Island Riptide, Ben 10 Omniverse, and MX vs ATV Alive ? all of which are marked as free, and totally fail to do anything when you try to make them work.
 
Sony hasn?t yet said anything about this weirdness, but it?s almost certainly related to ongoing PlayStation Now testing ? although if it?s an impending sign of backwards-compatibility for digital PS3 titles I will first eat my hat and then throw a parade.
 
PlayStation Now is powered by Gaikai?s infrastructure, and allows users to play PlayStation games games via remote emulation on PS3, PS4, Vita, smart TVs and even handheld devices. The streaming games service is expected to go live in North America this summer.
 
That?s really all we know for sure about it, but there have been several alleged leaks from the closed beta testing. The current catalogue seems to be 19 PS3 games including Shadow of the Colossus, WipEout HD, Dead or Alive 5, Dead Island and Real Steel.
 
It looks like the service is improving, with reduced loading times; early leaks suggested loading was a bit tiresome.
 
Thanks, GameInformer.
 
 
Sad I have balls internet, as if this does work okay (latency) I'd much rather play my PS3 library with a PS4 controller. I know you can do it wired, but you miss out on rumble and... wires... meh.
 
Don't buy into the native emulation, not going to happen for CELL.

Well its a start. At some point, a service like this will probably be how we do most of our gaming.

Do the games have updated resolutions or do they play as they do on the PS3

More than likely they would play about the same.
