PlayStation Now Will Begin Supporting 1080p Streaming This Week

Microsoft are making big leaps in cloud gaming lately. Having recently launched a beta for iOS and Windows 10 PC's, it's left Sony playing catch up. As part of their PlayStation Now service, Sony has just confirmed they'll be updating this service across Europe, US, Canada, and Japan, letting us stream at 1080p for the first time.
