Sony’s full game streaming service ‘PS Now’ is on it’s way out the door as Sony look to push more time to the PS4 and Windows PC. the company announced yesterday.
“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,” said Brian Dunn, senior marketing manager for PlayStation Now. “This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further.”
Sony launched the PS Now service in January 2015 on the PS4 which brought streamed games from a back catalogue from PS1, PS2 and PS3. The service was then brought to the PS3 in may 2015 and then added support for the PC using a PS4 controller with a USB dongle.
PS Now is also available on PS Vita, PS TV, Sony Blu-ray players and some smart TVs. But after August 15, 2017, the following devices will no longer be able to support PS Now:
- PlayStation 3
- PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV
- All 2013, 2014, 2015 Sony Bravia TV models
- All Sony Blu-ray player models
- All Samsung TV models
“If you use any of the above devices, we want to give our heartfelt thanks for your support, and we hope you’ll continue with us,” said Dunn who then went on to add that subscribers should adjust there accounts to stop any charges after the service expires.
For us its a shame but onwards and upwards.
