This week Sony announced that they will be ending support for its PlayStation Now game streaming service on all legacy Sony devices, including the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation Vita, the PlayStation TV, and a number of other devices.
They revealed this in an official blog post that they posted this week, stating that they have reduced the amount of supported devices in order to concentrate on other platforms, specifically the PC and PS4.
Here’s the full list of devices that will be losing support:
- PlayStation 3
- PlayStation Vita
- PlayStation TV
- All 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 Sony Bravia TV models
- All Sony Blu-ray player models
- All Samsung TV models
PS Now support will end for the 2016 Bravia TVs first on April 1st, after which support will end for all of the other devices that we mentioned from August 15th.
In case you don’t already know, PlayStation Now is a service that allows its users to stream over 450 PS3 games on their modern devices without the need for a game disc.
It’s basically Sony’s attempt at bringing backwards compatibility to the PlayStation games console.
After the service has been discontinued, Sony has said that any current saved data will be accessible from the cloud on both the PS4 and the PC (which will be the only remaining devices), allowing you to continue where you left off.
