GRONINGEN – Sony has announced via its official Twitter account that the streaming resolution of PlayStation Now will be increased to 1080p.
Today there are all kinds of streaming services for movies and series, such as Netflix, Disney +, and Videoland. But nowadays, it is also normal for music and podcasts to be streamed through services like Spotify or iTunes. The advantage of streaming is that you no longer have to store files on your own computer or phone, so you can listen to the latest songs or watch movies in seconds. But games are also increasingly distributed in the field of games.
Over 750 games
An example of a computer game streaming service is Playstation now, a service that allows subscribers to stream (and / or download) more than 750 games. The subscription costs 10 euros per month or 60 euros per year, but you can also try the service for free for seven days. Those who wish to play games through PlayStation Now can choose from games designed for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Additionally, new games are added on a monthly basis.
720p to 1080p
Resolution is very important when playing games. This is why Sony recently announced to increase the resolution of PlayStation Now from 720p to 1080p (pixels). According to Tweeter from Sony, game streaming resolution will be rolled out in phases. Players from Europe, Canada, Japan and the United States can expect the update “in the coming weeks”. These are all the regions of the world in which Sony is currently active. It is not yet known for which games the increased resolution will work.
In addition to streaming games, Sony is also testing a new video streaming service. The company confirms this in an interview with the Polish magazine Spider web. The test will take place in Poland and PlayStation Plus subscribers will have access to movies and series there. At the moment, more than 20 films and series can be broadcast, but the range will be further expanded in the coming months. Sony is therefore not only in full competition with parties such as Microsoft and Nintendo, but also with Netflix, Disney + and Amazon Prime Video.
