Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: PS Now
Sony has announced that they will be expanding the PlayStation 4 line with a Destiny bundle that comes with a new Glacier White model. The pack will launch this fall and come with the system, a 30-day membership to PS Plus, and a copy of Destiny for $449. Alongside the model, Sony will also be releasing white peripherals, including a Dual Shock 4 and vertical stand. Several features were also announced, including greater Youtube integration, which will allow users to share, view, and upload videos. Another feature will allow PS3 and PS4 owners to invite PSN friends to join multiplayer sessions in titles they don’t own, with support announced for Far Cry 4.
Sony has announced PlayStation Now, the Gaiki-powered streaming service that will use cloud technology to allow players access to PS3 games on their PS3, PS4, PS Vita, and Bravia TVs. The service is scheduled to go live first for PS4 this summer and later for the rest of the Sony family, including eight models of the 2014 Bravia TV line (KDL-R400B is the exception). Sony plans to eventually expand the service further to include non-Sony products, allowing gamers to “enjoy instant access to a game wherever there’s Wi-Fi connectivity” along with seamless transition between devices. The service will feature the ability to rent specific titles or subscribe for access to the library. There will be online multiplayer and trophy support. For those curious about the system’s integration with the current setup, the PS Blog responded to a community question that the PS Store will continue to offer downloadable titles in addition to PS Now’s streaming services.
