Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Sony pulls PlayStation Now from Vita screens

Did you like playing PS3 games on your Vita via the subscription service PlayStation Now? No, me neither, I tried the free trial, enjoyed it a bit (review) but wouldn't pay whatever the over-priced charge was for it.

If you happened to enjoy the cloud game streaming service, the tough, as Sony is pulling it from PS3, Vita, Blu-ray players and smart TVs, presumably only leaving PS4 and PC as the ways to play.

There's a blog post with the details, but I can't see this coming as a loss to too many gamers. Anyone want to guess how long Remote Play will last? Although at least that doesn't consume any of Sony's valuable cloud services.
