Playstation Now has been a neat take on giving users the chance to stream games on their PS4 and PS3 systems. While it's had some ups and downs since launch with its price points and lack of first party offerings, it has started to ramp things up and reform itself in the past few weeks. Now Sony has just announced that the streaming service will not only be hitting PSTV, which launches in America on 10/14, but will ALSO be hitting the Playstation Vita on the same day!

Unfortunately at this time, Sony has offered no real information other than the following quote from their PSTV Ultimate FAQ.

Oddly enough, it would appear most games available for streaming on PSTV will be VITA, PSP, PSONE Classics, and Minis. No word or insight has been given on what types of games will be available for the Vita to stream, though it can be assumed it will be the same demo list PS3 users had during the open Beta, or the current PS3 offerings available for PS4 NOW streaming.

It's also an odd move for Sony to be adding most of the Vita's library for streaming on the Playstation TV and not other platforms. It can be assumed they may come to PS4 at a later date, however this still means that they are actively offering a cheaper product that can play Vita games, which could only serve to push people away from purchasing a Playstation Vita.

What's everyone else's opinion on this? Does the Playstation TV entice you enough to purchase one, knowing you can stream a large amount of content to it for play now?

Driveclub is a driving game/graphical showcase for the PS4... or should I say, will be. The game's been continously delayed; what was supposed to be a launch title has been pushed back again and again.

And, again... again.

Not everybody has made the jump to current gen yet, and Activision seems to understand that perfectly well. They're taking it so well in fact, that they're giving you a free upgrade to the current gen copy (PS4/XBOX ONE) of the title if you choose to download it on PS3/360!

Keep in mind, that Sony's Crossplay offer does apply here. If you decide to download the game on PS4, it will be available on ps3, and vice-versa. However, if you Buy the Xbox One version first, you will not have access to it on your 360. It will only go one way, by buying and downloading the game on your 360, and then upgrading to the Xbox One version.

This is a fantastic offer to entice people that are still waiting to buy a current gen console to still pick up the game on their ps3/360 and upgrade later, especially with the Holidays being so close. No word yet on if this will be a timed exclusive deal, much like last year's Call of Duty: Ghosts offer.

And again, another "u wut" story, Myst, the adventure/puzzle game and one of the best selling PC games, is getting it's own TV series. Yeah, it's own TV series.

First Tetris, and now Myst. It looks like people are looking to video games as a base for stories and shows. A good thing? Or will it suffer the plague of other video game movies/TV shows?
