PS Now dropping PS3, Vita, and other devices to focus on PS4 and PC

PS Now PS4 PS Vita PS3

If you're a PS Now subscriber, you're about to have a lot less ways to access the service in the near future.

Sony announced today that on August 15, 2017, PS Now will be discontinued on every device except for PS4 and PC. This includes:
  • PlayStation 3
  • PlayStation Vita
  • PlayStation TV
  • All 2013, 2014, 2015 Sony Bravia TV models
  • All Sony Blu-ray player models
  • All Samsung TV models
Additionally, all 2016 models of Sony Bravia TVs will be discontinued on April 1, 2017. It's currently unclear why those models are being discontinued before earlier ones.

The move to drop support for these devices is due to Sony wanting to focus their efforts to further develop and improve the user experience on PS4 and PC, which they believe will put them in the best position to grow the service further.

Also of note -- PS Now cloud game saves can be accessed on PS4 and PC, in case you were previously using one of the devices being discontinued, so that's good to hear.
