Sony has the collection of over 100 PS3 games that will be made available for its PlayStation 3 users from May 12 onwards. With this availability of long awaited feature, PS3 users can now start any game in one device with their PS Now account and continue playing or end it on other consoles, as long as they use the cloud account.
