Right after Sony detailed PlayStation Now at the Consumer Electronics Show, shares in the GameSpot claim plummeted around 9 percent. Sony intends to to stream back-catalogue games from the cloud to customers either as individual digital rentals, or through a subscription service.
A beta for the service launches this month, starting with Sony's PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles. Support for PSVita, Bravia TVs and other devices will come later.
"GameStop has built a $600MM digital business, with most of the digital games sold through our stores. Similar to how we worked closely with our partner Sony to successfully sell the PlayStation Plus service, we are looking forward to working with them on including the new PlayStation Now service as part of our portfolio of gaming products we offer our customers," a representative for the company told GameSpot.
