But with so many cloud-based gaming services coming online in the coming weeks and months, that is surely a temporary condition.
Ryan didn't have anything specific about how Sony's hoping to buck that trend with the creation of PS5, though he did talk about how the company's changing its approach to the PlayStation Now games streaming service. In the United States it's now $9.99 per month, $24.99 per quarter, or $59.99 per year.
Starting today, PS Now's U.S. price will be $9.99 a month, $24.99 for three months, or $59.99 per year - that's down from $19.99, $49.99, and $99.99 respectively before.
Moving forward, Sony will add a new selection of marquee titles each month that'll be available for a limited time.
PlayStation Now originally launched with a fairly steep price tag. Which games would you like to see get the feature after Modern Warfare? If you have a good internet connection and want to play some great games that were on older Sony hardware and the PS4 gems available, this makes the service a no-brainer. The price for three months and a full year remains at $24.99 and $59.99, respectively.
One of Sony's first steps in garnering a larger audience is in the launch of the service's first TV spot.
With PlayStation Now streaming service, PS2, PS3, and PS4 games can be streamed to PlayStation 4 or PC. Considering that the biggest competitor, Xbox Game Pass, is only $9.99 and it features Xbox 360 titles for download, PlayStation Now still had a lot to live up to.
Ubisoft also disclosed plans to next year join a Stadia streaming game platform.
At times, it can be easy to forget that PlayStation Now exists. According to Wired, in an extensive interview about PlayStation Now with Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Jim Ryan, Cross play is now out of beta and any developer who wishes to use the functionality may do so.
