Sony Ends PlayStation Now Service For Most Devices
For those that have been luxuriating in the wealth of games PlayStation Now provides, Sony has unfortunately announced that the service will no longer be offered come August 15th 2017 on the PS3, PS Vita, PS TV, all Sony Bravia TV models, all Sony Blu-ray player models, and all Samsung TV models.
However, the PS4 and PC will still allow you to use it, and the Cloud saves will show up there, so you won’t lose any progress you made on the other devices.
Sony urges those with the affected devices to keep in mind that if you’d like to cancel your subscription, to do so now and
“remember to disable auto-renewal in your account settings before 15th July so that your subscription ends before 15th August 2017 (or before 15th April if you want your subscription to end before 15th May, the date the service ceases on the initial set of select 2016 Sony Bravia TVs).”
And for those that want to get in all their gameplay before the service quits, you will not be able to sign up for PS Now after March 15th 2017.
As to the reason why, SIEE junior product manager Ben Thorpe states that
“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. This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further.”
