    This is just wild news to me. I didn’t think they’d hedge their bets with Microsoft again especially when learning that Titanfall 2 would be multi-platform, so I was pretty surprised to learn this.

    • Crazy, right? Sony actually turned them down. I guess they felt it would compete with Playstation Now.
