This means that you won’t be able to stream gameplay to Ustream via the share button, and you’ll no longer be able to watch Ustream, er, streams via the Live from PlayStation app. The latter applies to the Vita version of the app, too.
All game titles that will come out starting October 2016 are required by Sony to be compatible with both PS4 and PS4 Neo.
Currently, the game is on closed beta testing, but more gamers will be able to play it through limited access.
Alternatives will remain on the PlayStation 4, however.
Looking at the numbers of every current-gen system, only the PS4 holds the potential to overthrow the PS2 and claim number one spot in lifetime sales.
A specific release date has yet to be confirmed.
In an investor relations report released today, Sony said PlayStation Plus has an impressive 20.8m paid subscribers.
Sony Corporation believed that it’s too early to officially unveil the “PlayStation Neo”, in which it should include showing the applications and the edges of the console.
Interestingly enough, it’s not stated why Sony is opting to drop the streaming service support for Ustream.
“They’ve been making consumer electronics for 70 years”. In the meantime we’ll see where Sony goes with streaming after this. He expects the console to launch sometime in April – June 2017.
At this rate, with other factors assumed as constant, the PS4 would occupy the highest perch among all consoles by the time it’s discontinued – assuming that it lasts for 13 years as well.
