If you are a gamer who uses Sony’s PlayStation Now services, you might be interested to learn that the company has recently made an announcement in which it seems that they will be ending support for older PlayStation devices, as well as other previously-compatible Sony and non-Sony devices.
According to Sony, starting from the 15th of August, 2017, PlayStation Now will be discontinued on devices such as the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, 2013-2015 Sony Bravia TV models, all Sony Blu-ray players, and all Samsung TV models. Instead it seems that Sony has decided that they will only keep supporting the PS4 and Windows PCs moving forward.
Sony’s blog post reads, “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.”
Sony has also reminded gamers that they should cancel their subscription if they do not intended to continue using the service. If you have no plans of upgrading to a PS4 or using PlayStation Now on your PC, then you’ll want to turn off the auto-renewal feature.
