Oddly enough, the handheld may be the service's best platform.
Today, Sony announced a line-up of new titles coming to the PlayStation Now game-streaming service. ('God of War III' may be the biggest name, but it is 'The Last Guy' that I'm pleased to find getting a new lease on life.) While Sony is ever adding games to the service (full list here), today's announcement comes some very notable news for fans of the Vita platform, both the Vita and PlayStation TV will now offer PlayStation Now.
That means being able to rent PS3 games via the service for play on Sony's smallest platforms. Although the Vita might seem to be ill-suited for the service on account of its wireless only design, the small screen is also less demanding. Anyone interested should check out the free 7 day trial (be careful of auto renew, see here) once Vita support has been enabled, which should be this week. PlayStation Now offers unlimited game-streaming rentals for $19.99 per month or $44.99 for three months. (A 5Mbs hardwire connection is recommend for PS4 & PS3 use.)
