The Sony PlayStation Now cloud-based gaming service lets you buy or rent previous-generation PlayStation games and play them on your PS3, PS4, or PlayStation Vita. If you’re a gaming geek, this is big news:
Quality likely won’t be at the level of playing a game locally because of time lags and image noise due to streaming. (Think about streaming a movie and watching one on Blu-ray.)
Sony isn’t the first company to give game streaming a go, but it is the highest-profile one to try it. As the streaming technology improves, gaming services such as the PlayStation Now could replace traditional game consoles entirely and change the course of gaming in the future.
Sony hasn’t announced pricing yet.
