PlayStation to end support for all devices
Sony took its official website to announce that they will be discontinuing the PlayStation Now streaming service for all devices except for the PS4 and PC. In other words, users who previously made use of the PlayStation Now service on their TVs, will no longer be able to do so.
Senior marketing manager Brian Dunn listed out all the devices that would no longer be able to utilise PlayStation Now, starting April 1: PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, all 2013, 2014, 2015 Sony Bravia TV models, Sony Blu-ray player models, all Samsung TV models. In the post, Dunn said that the company will only be focusing on supporting the 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. This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further. 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. Remember that all of your PS Now cloud game saves can easily be accessed on both PS4 and Windows PC,” the post read.
The PlayStation Now service was originally started back in 22014 for PS3 users. Eventually, the company made the service available for more devices the following year. The service essentially allowed users to play games from older consoles and important older titles through their PlayStation Network ID.
Those users who do not wish to continue their subscription are required to disable auto-renewal in their respective account settings so that their subscription ends by April 1, 2017.
