PSNow could play PS5 games on any display with internet if Sony so much develop it that way. But sure let's wait for an announcement.

PC, duh.

PC market isnt that big.
Even if a "hit game" on PS does like 20m+ sales... chances of it matching that on PC side? slim.
So at most your gonna go to like 40m sales.

Hitting 100m+ sales, will require something else than just porting things to pc (and allowing it everywhere there).

maybe if Sony grows PSnow base (we're talking like 50m+ users)? and puts games on there, it could go abit closer to hitting that 100m+ base.
To be profitable, it has to be after PS, and at most, same ish time as PC port. Also they will likely have to go the xbox route, of adding ingame purchases, to make such a model profitable (much like gamepass).

Supposedly back in 2020, god of war went past 20m sales.
With the PS5 patch, and new upcomeing God of War, linked to the PS4 game (story wise), it could likely see a boost, on PS5, with new users.
Its not inconceivable that it reaches 30m or more (on ps4+5) at some point. Maybe it does 10m on pc? at some point.
Still a long way off hitting 100m.

Well if PSNow was a solution, Sony would never be talking to Microsoft about Azure server. I don't know why you keeping bringing up PSNow.

PSNow does not have full world coverage. Gaikai's ($500m) network only covers europe and the US. Azure ($30b) is a world wide network which is capable of Cloud Processing and plenty of other features not available on Gaikai.

PSNow + Azure = Massive growth.

It's simple Sony has bought Take Two and they told Jim to make the announcement and this talk of 100 million is his way of telling us they now own GTA V, but don't worry Sony will quickly move to have Herman Hulst deliver a press conference confirming all this and unlike anything Jim says, it will be coherent and Herman won't have to admit that he was wrong a few weeks later.

Azure basically only would provide coverage and perhaps an upgrade on processing power over the infraestructure Sony have, so I have no Idea what you think would change for PSNow because of that in any mysterious way.

PSNow had been working on PC and Smartphones in the past if I'm not wrong, so yes Sony can upgrade it instead of creating a new service (PSNow allows both streaming, downloading, ownership of the games or playing some that are made "free" for subscribers last I checked), but sure they can create a new one.
