With tablets and smartphones are getting ever more popular, you think the demand for online games should be robust. But it appears that many still prefer to select and play games from a library rather than participating in a live streaming. Sony thinks that it can change this thinking.

It is expected to beam catalog game service not only to its PS One, PS2, PS3, and the Vita gamers but also on Sony branded TVs and mobile devices. Some are still skeptical about the process. Many feels that hardware is so advanced that anyone can use to enjoy a gaming experience without any hick ups. Trying a new way of playing games will be sure to pick up slowly.
