In a blog post Sony has announced it will be discontinuing the PlayStation Now service for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and several TV models in North America and Europe.

PlayStation Now is a subscription service that allows players to access hundreds of games from a vault that could be streamed to their console and saved to the cloud. The company said, “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.”

The service will no longer be accessible on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 for the following devices:

  • PlayStation 3
  • PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV
  • All 2013, 2014, 2015 Sony Bravia TV models
  • All Sony Blu-ray player models
  • All Samsung TV models
  • 2016 models of Sony Bravia TVs (on April 1, 2017)

All of PS Now games saves stored in the cloud are still accessible on both PS4 and PC.
