    Do you think PS Now will boost Vita Sales?

    As Playstation Now has just been announced and will have the ability to stream PS1, PS2 and PS3 games to Vita, do you think this will boost Vita sales?

    Seeing some of the hands on video's of The Last of Us being played on the Vita it would convince me to buy one if I already hadn't, but what do you guys think?

    With how the PS4 has boosted Vita sales with remote play I can definitely see PS Now having a similar effect. More content (PS1, 2 & 3 games) being available on devices will surely have a positive effect on hardware sales.
    Guys at work who have a PS4 have since gone out and bought a Vita for remote play since I showed them it on mine and PS Now can only further have a positive impact.
    Since PS4 I do not have my PS3 available so this is going to be right up my street as missed out on some quality gems giving up the PS3 in favour of the 4 so can't wait to try the likes of Beyond Two Souls, GT6 etc whether it be on PS4 or the Vita

    It may do yes, although I still think remote play will be the main draw.

    I am really excited about the prospect of playing ps3 games on the Vita, especially if trophy support is confirmed.

    Remote play pretty much sold me on the Vita so now this service is coming it's made it all the more worth buying!

    It'll boost sales but how much I have no idea. After reading that it's rental based with a subscription option it's definitely gonna be limited to digital only titles and anyone who has already bought these games is probably not gonna want to buy them again. I expected a subscription with access to pretty all your previously purchased titles on PSN so if the subscription they're talking about is that then sure but I don't think it will be.

    Plus they'll likely delay it up the ass for any country not USA, they're saying 2015 for Europe but look how long the Video Store took, and still has not arrived in many EU countries, not good considering most PS customers are in the PAL regions.

    If Sony markets it then yeah. Vita marketing has sucked so far.

    With all the ps4 they are selling maybe they can afford some real advertising. They're marketing department has sucked since the ps2 days.

    I think it will boost sales of the vita for a while, before slipping away back down to lower sales. Poeple are still skint...apart from those who get all their **** via their parents wallet.
