Sony has confirmed that its PlayStation Now service will be limited to PS4 and PC from later this year. This means anyone who was using the PlayStation Now service on their PS Vita, PS TV, PS3, Sony Blu-ray players or even Bravia and Samsung TVs won’t be able to play games from August, 15th to be precise. The discontinuation for 2016 Bravia models will come in early from April 1.
Sony’s decision is surprising, to be honest, but they claim that it will allow them to “focus” and devote their resources to PS4 and Windows PC “to further develop and improve the user experience on these two devices”. What the exact plan is uncertain but it better be good as many customers are unhappy with the move.
PlayStation Now is a game streaming service that allows users to play PS3 games even if they do not own a console. All the user needs is a controller and a high-speed internet connection as all the rendering is handled by the console sitting hundreds of miles away.
The service is available in the United States and few other markets.
