Spread the love

PC gamers will soon be able to access PlayStation Now on their Windows PCs. In what can only be described as an odd move, Sony appears to be looking at additional ways of monetising its cache of cloud-based games and services.

So, technically, once it launches PC gamers will be able to play Unchartered 4, as well as a raft of other PlayStation Exclusive titles, on their gaming rigs.

Sony confirmed its plans to bring PlayStation Now to PCs via the Playstation Blog, where it confirmed the service would be initially launching in North America and parts of Europe to begin with.

“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,” said the blog post.

Sony is always releasing a $24 DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adapter, available from September, that will allow users to seamlessly link their DualShock 4 controllers to their PC rigs wirelessly. Users will then be able to use the controller just as you do when it is connected to a PS4 console.

You will also be able t use it for PS4 Remote Play on PC and Mac. Not heard of Remote Play? Well, you can download it RIGHT HERE.

Here are the recommended specs for running PS Now on your PC:

  • 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

Sony says you’ll need to use a wired internet connection for best results. It also lists 5Mbps as the minimum speed for which you can use the service, meaning those out in the sticks may have to wait for better internet before opting for the service.

Sony hasn’t said specifically when the new service will go live, but we’ll update you as soon as we know more.
