The future of gaming is Now, PlayStation Now. Sony’s cloud based gaming service PlayStation Now is that future according to Sony in any case. It may seem like pie in the sky stuff until you consider the recently released details.
Powering the Now cloud will be custom silicon that manages to cram 8 PS3’s onto a single sliver of silicon. Silicon that will not only be driving PS3 games to the latest generation PS4 but will also see PS3 games delivered to Bravia TV’s, PS Vita, tablets and other partner devices.
With silicon at the ready Sony Now is in testing, the services beta period is expected to last through the first quarter of 2014.
