Sony rocked the boat this week with the unveiling of PlayStation Now, its new Gaikai-powered, subscription-based cloud gaming service. Due for launch in US this summer, PS Now will let you stream PS3 games (similarly to OnLive) for play on Vita, PS3, PS4 and even Sony Bravia TVs on a per-game rental basis or for an all-access monthly subscription.
But that’s only the beginning. The service will later support PS1, PS2 and eventually PS4 games. Even more shocking is Sony’s promise to expand the service to non-Sony devices including smartphones and tablets. In time, then, you will be able to play PlayStation games without even owning a PlayStation. Is this the future?
