Original article: At the moment, the PlayStation Now beta is currently taking place. Select gamers within the PS4 fanboy camp have been selected to play-test Sony's new use of the Gaikai cloud service to allow users to stream games to their PS4 as quasi-emulation for games from the PS3's library.

DualShockers rolled out an updated list of supported games for the PS4's PS Now library, which you can check out below.

· Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear
· LUMINES: Supernova
· NIGHTS Into Dreams…
· Retro/Grade
· Sacred Citadel
· Saints Row: The Third
· Skullgirls Encore
· Sniper Elite V2
· Puppeteer
· Eat Them!
· PixelJump Racers 2nd Lap
· PixelJunk Shooter 2
· BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
· Ben 10 Omniverse 2
· Contrast
· Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness
· Catherine
· El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron
· FUEL
· GRID

Those are some pretty slick games and a huge upgrade over the nine games that were originally available during the early days of beta testing. As you can see, it's not just the AAA titles from the PlayStation 3's library get the cloud treatment. Titles like Ben 10 and El Shaddai show that Sony is also aiming to introduce the mainstream crowd to some titles that may have flown (or rather, did fly) heavy under the radar for most audiences.

For some titles, Sony is bypassing the need for PlayStation Now and simply re-releasing them as remastered versions, such as The Last of Us, which is due for release this summer on the PS4.

For other games that either didn't sell well enough to warrant a “remastered” version or weren't popular enough to get an HD collection re-release, they'll likely only be available in the form of backwards compatibility for the PS4 via PS Now.

An interesting note in the article on DualShockers is that some of these games may be available for brief renting periods...
“Basically when you decide to play a game in the beta you can select to do so for 30 days, 14 days or 7 days. It pretty much works like a rental.”

Pricing has yet to be unveiled for the service, but Sony is treading on thin ice, as a lot of gamers would be pretty peeved to have to pay a hefty price to replay some of the PS3 games they already own on the PS4.

Allegedly, local backwards compatibility is inbound for PSX and PS2 games via brute-force emulation. So those of you with the original console discs will be able to play them on the PS4 via a firmware update. Of course, there's no official word on if or when this feature will roll out, but if I followed the knot in my gut that wasn't a bad burrito sandwich, I would say that we'll get more details come E3.
