PSNow is not a world wide service. From what I believe PSNow runs off Gaikai which is only used in some parts of the world. From memory Gaikai cost Sony roughly $500m. Now if you put that into comparison with Azure, that cost MS $30b which is accessible world wide. Something I don't think Sony can afford unless they rent out Amazon or something. I will be curious to see how Nintendo and Sony imitate and implement this rumoured Xbox direction. Nintendo could possibly rent the servers out from MS and have there own access but I don't see Sony doing that as there relationship with MS isn't the same. 

Simple just build a system like Azure, SONY is not as rich like Microsoft but they can afford if it for making money.  Or the easiest one, work with Google, Oracle, or Amazon. 

It brings up the question of whether or not Sony should  do more to position itself in the tech space , this issue has become more  pertinent than ever. In today's world of Google , MS,Facebook , Amazon etal, old company structures no longer cut the mustard.
