The Xbox Game Pass vs PlayStation Now battle is not really worthy of the name right now, but there are indications that Sony is at least working towards making it a fair fight. Probably also with the help of Microsoft.
The company that created PlayStation has confirmed the cloud streaming service, which provides access to hundreds of PS3 and PS4 era games, will eventually collide from 720p to 1080p.
Support will not come in all games, but will be available on “compatible” games from this week. UK gamers will also be able to enjoy the upgrade.
In a post on Twitter, Sony explains: “PlayStation will now begin rolling out support for streaming 1080p enabled games this week. The rollout will take place over the next several weeks in Europe, the US, Canada and Japan, where PlayStation Now is available. “
The announcement continues that Sony is working on a response to GamePass and its tremendous value proposition, further promoting cloud gaming coming to popular web browsers for PC gaming and iOS.
