Much like how GameStop worked with Sony to dole out subscriptions of the PS Plus for the PS4, a representative from the company said that GameStop wishes to also help move the new PS Now product.

“GameStop has built a $600 million 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," the GameStop representative said.

Sony announced the service during CES 2014 this week in Las Vegas, and PS Now will give PS3, PS4, PS Vita, and some Sony television owners a crack at streaming games from as far back as the original PlayStation.
