Sony has finally revealed what Gaikai has been doing all this time. It is above and beyond (BEYOND!) what everyone was expecting. Not only will Playstation.Now bring PS3 games to PS4 but PSVita, Sony tablets, smartphones and some Sony TVs. But the best part is sony does not have to stop there. They have said eventually Playstation.Now might come to apple tablets and possibly other platforms as well. Think about it, you could be sitting at home playing The Last of Us on your PS4 because it is a great game. Then you decide to ride a bus over to your friends house. On the bus you continue to play TLOU on your tablet then when you arrive you finish it on your friend’s Sony TV. If that doesn’t sound next gen I don’t know what does. Playstation.Now ensures the Playstation brand will last long after consoles. In the future you won’t have own multiple Playstation devices because all of the games are playable on any of them. This blurs the line of exclusivity, is it still Playstation exclusive if I play Uncharted on the Playstation program on my PC? I am not saying that would happen but it would not surprise me. It seems to me Playstation.Now is Sony making a true investment in the future of gaming by freeing up their games to be playable anywhere.
