Sony has announced that it will be ending support for its cloud-based gaming service, PlayStation Now, for several of its devices.
In a statement published on Wednesday, the Japanese tech superpower said that it will be ceasing the service on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, as well as on all its Bravia TVs and Blu-ray players. Support for Samsung TVs will also come to an end.
PlayStation Now allows subscribers to stream selected PS3 games via an array of devices which do not necessarily have sufficient processing power to run the actual games.
The official date has been set as the 15th of August, while support for 2016 Bravia TVs will end far sooner, on the 1st of April.
“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,” it explains. “This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further.”
