Sony’s PlayStation Now service, allowing the streaming of old PlayStation titles on a variety of platforms, will soon only be available on PlayStation 4 and PC, the company announced in a recent blog post. Come August 15, the following platforms will no longer be supported by the service:

  • PlayStation 3
  • PlayStation Vita
  • PlayStation TV
  • All 2013, 2014, 2015 Sony Bravia TV models
  • All Sony Blu-ray player models
  • All Samsung TV models

The post also mentions the discontinuation of 2016 models of Sony Bravia TVs on April 1.

The decision comes as a result of Sony’s desire to focus their attention on perfecting the service for PS4s and PCs. Sony also warned users to turn off their subscriptions’ auto-renewal option in case they do not wish to – or cannot – use the service after the change.

PlayStation Now can be quite a handy service, used to – as previously mentioned – stream a variety of PlayStation titles to your platform of choice. In practice, this means that you could basically be playing otherwise console-exclusive titles such as Shadow of the Colossus or God of War 3 – just to name a few – on your trusty old PC, should you have the necessary internet connection to do so. Which is, let’s be honest, pretty nifty.
