Over past months, Sony has successfully taken many meaningful turns, making its latest PlayStation 4 console the forerunner of the eighth generation of video game consoles. However, there are some things that Sony has to answer for, as they were promised way back, but now they are nowhere to be seen. One of these things is the availability of PS1 and PS2 games, as Sony assured its fans that they will be able to enjoy retro games with the power of cloud, but now, the company’s Gaikai-based video game streaming service, PlayStation Now, only allows access to PS3 titles, and it looks like Sony currently has no plans to add PS1 and PS2 titles to the catalog as well.
Sony Has Nothing to Say About Bringing PS1 and PS2 Games Back to Life With PlayStation Now
When Sony first announced the PlayStation 4 console back in February 2013, they left a little hope in hearts of PlayStation gamers by talking about their partnership with Gaikai, a company which provides high-end technology for streaming video games, and how the power of cloud would allow gamers to stream PS1, PS2 and PS3 games smoothly. Well, with the passage of time, things changed, and now we have PlayStation Now.
Giving a shape to its vague plans, Sony announced PlayStation Now at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, a Gaikai-based video game streaming service which provides access to PlayStation gaming content on PS4, PS Vita PS3 and Sony TVs. Promising a bright future for PlayStation, this announcement cheered up almost every loyal fan. However, there’s one thing that seems kind of inappropriate, PlayStation Now lets you play PS3 games only.
