Sony are not committed? By the time this thing launches for Google with a handful of games PS NOW will have over 800. 

True but commitment would have been the full ps1t/m4 and psp/vita library

Maybe the ultimate commitment yes but just commitment absolutely not. After the ps1 classic rightfully bombed, I can see them focusing their ps1 efforts on the service now. It's basically in beta mode this gen. Sony will unleash their true vision for the ps5.

If it really delivers i can see it affecting the PS5 and mostly next xbox console. I can see the American market picking this idea up pretty smoothly if it works as well as they said but Sony and mostly Nintendo will still have their IPs and strong fanbase.

I do feel like if this is a success, it might be a little dangerous from Sony and Microsoft to only announce their next console several months later and launch it like a year after.
The whole thing seems really convenient for the grand public, let's just see now how well it works and the pricetag.



Shareholders who sold in response to Stadia must be the same people who'd believe what's written in the article. The alleged pressure from mobile gaming and whatever other nutjob reasoning is not factual at all, with both Nintendo and Sony's profits from console gaming being on the rise.

In any case, no reason to worry about anything here.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Everybody falls when a big player with big tons of money enters a market for a slice for the pie. Just look how many groceries are closing throughout US after Amazon decided to enter the business of local grocery supermarket by buying Whole Foods.

Jeff Bezos is an asshole.

Knee jerk reactions as usual, this really doesn't affect Nintendo and Sony as much as it does Microsoft because they have a wealth of exclusives that can only be on their platform, even if they do end up making streaming devices and services. This is in direct competition with first and foremost the xCloud.

I don't know how Google can compete with Nintendo exclusives.

I'm starting to not like Google now. -_-

Just now?

I used to tolerate Google until just now.

Yeah, we all fell a bit after the Stadia announcement...

What's that supposed to mean?



Some days I just blow up.

"What ? Google is launching a streaming service ? Sony is worthless now... even if they did a pretty good and functional service since 2014 and have a huge library of games"

Sony's stock has been falling for 6 months. They have no public road map for the future of PlayStation, and the rest of their business is either dead, dying, or flat. The stock will continue to fall as more and more competition goes after PlayStation. It will also continue to be hammered as long as they stick with Xperia.

At some point Sony will unveil what they have been working on for the last 2+ years, since they stopped supporting the PS4 and the current version of PSN. If it looks promising, they will gain all the losses back quickly. If they just show off PS5, with no improvements to PS Now/ PSN, no PS5 Phone, and no new Pub/Studio acquisitions, then they could be on a course that is irreversible. They have all the tools to succeed, and make sure they remain the dominate player in gaming, it is just a matter of whether they have the leadership that understands how to use them.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Just wait for when the PS5 is announced, lol.
Or The Last of Us Part II gets a release date.

LOL, pretty much.  I wouldn't be surprised if Sony has some new announcements for Now with the PS5 announcement.  At least, I have noticed that in the past few weeks they have really been pushing Now ads on Youtube.

Also, with Google announcing 10.7 Tflops "consoles," I'm more optimistic about the rumors of PS5 being 12-14 Tflops.

The thing is the consumer doesnt have to buy that 10.7 flops so instead of having to buy a ps5 pro halfway they get the upgrade for free

It's like that method have not been implemented before with Gaikai, on live or even PS now. Yeah Google has more server but it's just the same and will be the same. There will be more people who will buy a physical box to play games rather than streaming it even if there will be no more  lag in far future, stable speed  or people around the world already has minimum speed 100Mbs (which is possibly in another 100 years to wait) .
