SO, DOES SONY PLAN TO BRING PS NOW TO PHONES?

It’s possible that Apple was aware of the strategy in advance.

Microsoft wasn’t the only major console manufacturer hoping to bring its games to smartphones. The Verge said that it had obtained a document from Epic Games’ lawsuit against Apple, which revealed that the iPhone maker had known that Sony was planning a “mobile extension” of PlayStation Now for release in 2017. At launch, the service would broadcast over 450 PlayStation 3 games, with further PS4 titles to follow.

Apple addressed the PlayStation Now expansion while it was in the early phases of building Apple Arcade, which would be its answer to Sony’s service as well as Xbox Game Pass, according to a report. Despite the fact that Arcade won’t be available until 2019 and doesn’t yet offer streaming, Apple interpreted PlayStation Now as a sign of a broader move toward gaming subscriptions.

Providing Apple’s report is correct, it’s unclear why Sony isn’t delivering games to smartphone consumers through a streaming service. A mix of PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus is rumored to launch in spring 2022, but the specific rumor did not include the availability of mobile access to content. Sony has already stated that it will not comment.

There could have been a number of things at play. Sony may not have wanted to test Apple restrictions that basically prevented cloud gaming apps from being used – Microsoft had to use the internet to get past this restriction. There are also some well-known technological issues, such as converting gamepad-focused titles to touchscreens or ensuring that streams remain reliable over cellular connections, to contend with. In any case, this shows that Sony was at least exploring a more ambitious version of PlayStation Now than the service that you currently have access to.
