Sony plans to launch PlayStation Now on Android and iOS
Just a few days ago, a report stated that Microsoft and Apple allegedly agreed to reach an agreement to introduce Xbox games to iOS as a separate application. Now, in another report, The Verge detailed that Sony is also trying to introduce its cloud game streaming service PlayStation Now to mobile phones.
The Verge report is based on “confidential documents” from the Epic v. Apple trial.
