Sony is giving its own game streaming service PlayStation Now a major update. As a result, games should be shown much more opulent in the future via streaming.
In 2014, Sony launched its game streaming service PlayStation Now for the first time and has since continued to improve it, expanding its range of games and opening up new regions around the world. However, the service recently suffered from one fact: with a resolution of 720p, games were no longer necessarily displayed in a contemporary way. But Sony is now providing a remedy here.
As has now been officially confirmed, a major update these days ensures that the resolution is noticeably increased. Instead of 720p, streamed titles on PS Now will in future be displayed in Full HD 1080p resolution, provided the games support it. The feature is to be implemented in the USA, Canada, Japan and also in Europe.
First, 1080p-capable games will be made available on PS Now before the graphics of already available games in the library are upgraded. Sony has not yet confirmed which the first 1080p-capable games will be on the service. Over time, however, the number of games that support the feature should grow noticeably.
While a competitor with Stadia is already making 4K resolutions possible, Amazon with Luna and Microsoft other competitors are currently experimenting with streaming in 1080p. The rollout at PS Now is scheduled to begin later this week.
PS Now is available on PC, PS4, and PS5.
