PlayStation Now, Sony’s streaming game service for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Vita, and other devices, will be discontinued on a number of devices later this year. In a blog post, the company mentioned that they have decided to focus on bringing a better PlayStation Now experience to the PlayStation 4 and Windows PCs and as a result will be dropping the service from other devices on August 15, 2017.
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 discontinued devices include:
- PlayStation 3
- PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV
- All 2013, 2014, 2015 Sony Bravia TV models
- All Sony Blu-ray player models
- All Samsung TV models
The company also noted that PlayStation Now will cease to work on 2016 model year Sony Bravia TVs as well. If you are a current PlayStation Now subscriber, Sony recommends that you disable auto-renew in your account settings so that your subscription doesn’t renew if you are using one of the discontinued devices.
