Sony will start rolling out 1080p streaming for the PlayStation Now game streaming service this week for PlayStation with higher quality. Until now, there was a cap that did not go higher than the 720p quality. The rollout will take place in the coming weeks in Europe, among others.
PlayStation with higher quality
PlayStation lets you know in a tweet, which we have taken over below for completeness. As it now seems, this is a specific list of games that will soon be streamed in full HD. Unfortunately, it is not known at the time of writing which games are involved. Perhaps Sony will provide more clarity on this in the coming weeks.

When Sony will actually offer games in 1080p quality for PlayStation Now, the company will bring its range on par with some competitors. Amazon’s game streaming service, Luna, can also offer games in Full HD. In the meantime, Google has already taken a big step further: with a good internet connection and the right TV or monitor, you can stream in 4k quality with ease. Meanwhile, Microsoft is also testing streaming games in 1080p.
PlayStation Now is a great option for many people that gives you access to a wide range of (exclusive) PlayStation games. In addition to streaming games, it is now also possible download games to your hard drive. You will find the tweet here.
