In an official blog post, Sony announced PlayStation Now is making the leap to Windows PC via an app. This means that a lot of PlayStation exclusive titles will be available to play on the PC. The game selection includes some of the games in the Uncharted, God of War, and Rachet & Clank series, and PS3 games like The Last of Us and Journey.
To make playing the games on the PC even easier, Sony is releasing a DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor. The adapter will hit shelves in early September and sell for $24.99. It lets you connect your controller to both Mac and PC computers and will enable all the features on the controller including vibration and the stereo headset jack. The wireless adapter isn’t required, because you can simply connect your controller to your computer via a USB cable.
If you’re interested in running PS Now on your PC, Sony released these recommended specs:
- 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
- Minimum 5Mbps connection
The PS Now PC app will launch first in parts of Europe and will come to North America shortly after that. PlayStation Now is a video game streaming subscription service that lets players stream hundreds of PS3 games.
