PlayStation Now Comes to PC Today

Sony streaming service, PlayStation Now is headed to the PC, it was announced recently on the PlayStation Blog.

The Windows app launches today in the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands, with release in North America following “shortly thereafter”.

For £12.99 per month, the app will allow users to stream PlayStation exclusives to their PC for the very first time, giving current subscribers a whole new way to access the service’s library of over 400 games.

PS Now USB

In addition to the PC launch, Sony is releasing a USB wireless adaptor for the DualShock 4 for $24.99, allowing PC and Mac users to connect their controller wirelessly. All the DualShock’s features are supported, so you’ll be able to play exactly as you would through your PS3 or PS4.

While the USB isn’t required to play any of the service’s games, it’ll certainly come in handy if you don’t want to be tethered to your PC via a cable. It’ll be available in early September.

The adaptor will also be compatible with PS4 Remote Play on PC and Mac, the app for which is available to download here.

To run PS Now on your PC, the following specs are recommended:

  • Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10
  • 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
  • 300 MB or more; 2 GB or more of RAM
  • Sound card; USB port

A minimum of 5Mbps is required, with Sony suggesting a wired connection for “the optimal experience.”

Charlie is a platforming romantic from England, that still speaks in a fashion that died with the Elizabethan era. Having been gaming since the days of Crash Bandicoot, he champions the Playstation, and is only a little bit embarassed that Super Mario Land keeps spelling his defeat.
