I only saw this posted in a reply to the Free PSN stuff thread, but seeing as it is limited I thought it might deserve some attention here.

 

By downloading and using the E3 app on your PS4, you can get access to the Playstation Now Closed Beta.

 

Right now the supply is depleted, but there's a message that says there will be more today at 12:00 PM PDT / 3:00 PM EDT.

 

I claimed mine yesterday but haven't had time to try it out, but the games available to play through it are:

 

PixelJunk Eden

All Zombies Must Die!

Ben 10 Omniverse

Big Sky Infinity

Choplifter HD

Dead Island Riptide

Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2

Hunter's Trophy 2 - America

Legasista

Mercury Hg

MX vs ATV: Alive

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD

Overlord: Raising Hell

Pacific Rim

Papo & Yo

Poker Night 2

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken

Tales from Space: About a Blob

Way of the Samurai 3

 

All games are free, and since the open beta doesn't start for over a month I assume you will be able to access these at least until then.

Worth mentioning that there's a pretty comprehensive NDA on the beta. No idea if the E3 app route is subject to that, but I wouldn't have felt comfortable posting a game list.

Here is a link to the same list the OP posted if he is worried about violating the NDA he can edit his post.  I am currently not under a NDA since I failed to click on the right option in the PS4 E3 app today.  Will try one more time tomorrow if I remember.

Yeah other then Dead Island Riptide (which I am only slightly interested in) there isn't much I would even want to play.

lol, seems like a lot of people aren't paying attention to the NDA, unfortunately. Maybe it's changed since they're letting lots more people in? Anyway it opens to everyone on July 31st, so don't fret if you can't get in now. I don't know why they'd give away codes in the middle of the day.

I mean, the list is posted several places online. I knew every game before I even tried the thing out. I doubt someone posting the list in a forum for videogame nerds would raise many eyebrows. They'd be more worried about the easily accessible websites who currently supply the information to the masses. I don't blame them for the NDA though, I'd want to keep this list under wraps as well.

And just a tip for those who actually work 9-5 type hours and can't be home at noon PST...

 

If you have a Vita you can use remote play to access your PS4 from work (assuming you can get on a decent wifi connection or AT&T 3G).  I did this today but was clicking on the video and not the option just below that for apps.

Lolwat. Its 4 and a half hours after they started giving them out, were they supposed to hold a code specifically for you?
 

You have atleast one more day to get in (Though I could have sworn this deal was going for like another week).

Ha, didn't even realize there was an NDA. Going through the E3 app just brought up a page to download the PS Now beta through a page similar to the Store, and when I started it the first time I agreed to something, didn't pay attention to what it said though. I'm not too concerned about posting the list, hopefully nothing bad will come from it.

The FBI is on their way to your house.

I told them you were apart of Anonymous.

Yeah, it's pretty shitty that they're releasing keys at noon. No chance for the working crowd.
