The Super Nintendo may be among the most beloved videogame consoles of all time, but when it launched in the U.S. 25 years ago, it faced an uphill battle. The system had been a smash hit upon being released in Japan a year earlier, under the name Super Famicom, but the U.S. launch didn't go as well. Had Sega not been an option, it's likely the SNES launch would have gone more smoothly. But shelling out nearly $200 for a system that did not yet have a full library of games was a hard pill to swallow for many parents.Eventually, Nintendo the uphill battle for console dominations and the rest was history.

Microsoft has promised to bring future Xbox titles to Windows 10, and now Sony is making a similar offer. Soon, you won’t need to own a piece of PlayStation hardware in order to play PlayStation games. The PlayStation Now service came about after Sony paid $380 million to acquire streaming service Gaikai back in 2012. It did take them two years to convert it into PlayStation Now, but all that work means PS4 owners can enjoy playing streamed versions of PS3 titles for a monthly subscription. It’s not cheap though, costing $19.99 for a month or $44.99 for 3 months. However, soon you’ll be able to save some cash by not being forced to buy a console to access the service. Sony has announced that PlayStation Now is being made available on Windows PCs across Europe and North America. From wochit Tech.
