Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation Now service is coming to PC very soon.
PC fans will soon have access to a vast library of classic PS3 games thanks to PlayStation Now. Sony’s game streaming service has launched in parts of Europe and will come to North America some time in the near future. This is the first time PC players will be able to access PlayStation exclusives on their preferred platform. While games like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, God of War, and The Last of Us will never be released on PC, PlayStation Now at least offers a way to play on PC.
Sony is also, finally, giving gamers a way to use a Dualshock 4 on PC and Mac. The Dualshock 4 USB Wireless Adapter launches early September and will set you back $24.99. The adapter makes it easy and simple to wirelessly connect your Dualshock 4 to a PC, and will enable every feature of the controller as long as the gaming application supports the feature. However, owning the adapter isn’t required to use a Dualshock 4 on PC or Mac. You can also connect via a USB cable, but you’ll have to play wired.
Here are the recommended specs for getting PlayStation Now up and running on 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
Also, you will need at least a 5Mbps connection to actually get it running. We’ll let you know a release date when Sony announces one.
