GameStop stock drops following PlayStation Now announcement

Sony impressed by demoing its PlayStation Now cloud game streaming service at CES yesterday. The service will let a variety of Sony and non-Sony devices access PlayStation devices through a high-speed internet connection. Good news for Sony doesn't necessarily translate to good news for everyone else, though. GameStop was adversely affected by the announcement, with its stock falling as much as 8% yesterday.

PlayStation Now preview: hands-on with Sony's cloud game streaming

PlayStation Now preview: hands-on with Sony's cloud game streaming

Perhaps the biggest news from Sony's CES press conference this morning was the announcement of PlayStation Now. The end result of Sony's acquisition of Gaikai, the streaming service will initially let players access PS3 games on a variety of Sony devices, including PS3, PS4, Vita, and new Bravia televisions.

Being able to play God of War: Ascension on Vita was impressive, especially given how unreliable wi-fi can be at a conference as congested as CES. The novelty may have worn off for PS4 Remote Play users, but the ability to stream full console quality games to the handheld is nonetheless impressive.
