PlayStation Now Update Cuts Support for the PS3, PS Vita, and PlayStation TV

Sony has officially announced the discontinuation of the PlayStation Now streaming service on the PlayStation 3 console, and the PlayStation Vita handheld. The announcement arrived in place as the PlayStation Now application update is now live, and the discontinued support will go in effect immediately. Along with the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, older models of the Sony Bravia TV (2013-2015), Samsung TV models , and all Sony Blu-ray players will also lose PlayStation Now support. Below is an excerpt from Senior Marketing Manager of PlayStation Now, Brian Dunn, on the current focus of the PlayStation Now:

“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.”
