PS now just became more obsolete than it already is
I'm not a fan of PSNow, but how does your comment make any sense? There is a ton of games on PSNow that can't be played on any other service...
I used PSNow for like a month when it first game out. At the time the little latency it did have was to much for me in the games I wanted to play so I let it lapse. That being said, I have no doubt, to include some user reviews I've read over time that it has improved. Not to mention, it's clearly doing well enough, or making Sony enough money anyway, to keep it going. I guarantee they've been working on it as a future model, ironing out issues, and preparing for when competitors launched something like GeForce Now, or Blade Shadow (Google) it, before they push out major updates of their own, or simply lower the price to compete with new stuff. Lastly, as Bluefox755 pointed out, Sony has great games that can't be played on any other service sitting on PSNow. Maybe not your cup of tea, nor mine, but its an OPTION for some people, and hardly obsolete.
It cost too much money to kill off. They wont see a ROI on it in this decade. If ever...
@CurbStompin That may be the case, but I haven't seen any financial reports that say that, and a lot of business operate that way. It's called an investment, and that may take time to come to fruition. Either way, its an option that you AREN'T REQUIRED to buy, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with options.
You can only get PS games on PS Now. It's not obsolete.
