Sony ending Playstation Now Support for PS3 and Vita

If you’ve been enjoying streaming PS3 titles from the Playstation Now service, and haven’t been using a PS4 or PC to do so, you might want to start doing so as Sony will be cancelling the service for older Playstation Generations and devices in the near future.

Sony has confirmed today that they will be scaling back the streaming service, limiting it to PS4 and PC. “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.”

After April 15th 2017, Playstation Now will no longer be available on PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, Sony Blu-ray players and a variety of smart TVs. “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, noting that PlayStation Now customers can access their cloud-based save files on any platform.

The service was first introduced in January 2015, and was brought PS3 in May of that year. Sony allowed the service though PC just last summer.
