Only PC and PS4 going forward

Starting this summer the PlayStation Now game streaming service will only be available on PlayStation 4 and PC. Today Sony announced that it will be discontinuing the service on a wide range of platforms, including the PS3, PS Vita, PlayStation TV, and all supported smart TVs and Blu-ray players. The discontinuation will go into effect as of August 15th, 2017.

“After thoughtful consideration, we decided to shift our focus and resources to PS4 and Windows PC to further develop and improve the user experience on these two devices,” Sony explained in a brief blog post. “This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further.” PlayStation Now made its debut on PS4 in 2014, and lets subscribers stream a selection of PS3 games for a fixed monthly price. It expanded to PC last August.
