I think Sony can make this big. I have high hopes for this. Netflix comes to mind, although i know games won't have the broad appeal of movies, it still can bring a nice cash flow into the company.

This is where Pachter is wrong about Playstation Now, the limitless potential it could have in the android market if done well. Sony's library of games is huge dating all the way back to their PSone days and the ability to open that library up to a new generation is huge.

Imagine games like Jumping Flash, Jet Moto, Wipeout and all those classics running on your phone. With the potential for PS4 games in the cards as well.

Pachter is skeptical of 3rd parties jumping on board but since Sony's library is so big when they see that if Sony's games are doing well they will join in.
