PlayStation Now Is Making Its Way To PC


PlayStation Now, the subscription service that allows PlayStation 3 game streaming to PlayStation 4, will be arriving to PCs later this fall.

In a blog post on PlayStation’s official website, it was announced that the service will be launching in Europe first with a debut in North America shortly after.

This will bring a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles to Windows PC for the very first time, including entries in the Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank franchises, as well as beloved PS3 games like The Last of Us and Journey. Current subscribers have a new way to access PS Now’s library of over 400 games, and the PC app provides a new way for even more gamers to discover and play the service.

With the addition of PlayStation Now on PC, Sony is also introducing a brand new device to make playing games a bit easier: the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adapter. The adapter, which will retail for $24.99, will allow DualShock 4’s to connect wirelessly to a PC or Mac with every feature that the controller has, including the light bar, vibration, analog sticks, and more. The DualShock 4 dongle isn’t just limited to PlayStation Now either, as you’ll also be able to use it for PlayStation 4 Remote Play on PC or Mac.

PlayStation Now on PC also comes with recommended specs for the machine, which will require Windows 7 or higher, 2GB of RAM or higher, and of course a USB port. The full list of specs and Internet speed requirements can be found here.
