PC gamers will finally be able to play Sony exclusives likes Uncharted and The Last of Us.
PlayStation Now, Sony's streaming service that allows PS4 gamers to play old PS3 titles, is making it's way to PC alongside a special DualShock 4 wireless dongle. That means that PS3 titles that were previously exclusive to Sony gamers like The Last of Us and Journey can now be enjoyed by PC gamers. Rejoice!
Current PlayStation Now subscribers will be able to play the entire library on either their PS4 or PC, while new PC subscribers will instantly get access to the full 400 game catalog currently available. Sony didn't give us an exact time frame but did say that the service would launch "in parts of Europe soon and will come to North America shortly thereafter."
Additionally, the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adapter launches in early September for $24.99. Anyone who has ever tried to connect a PS3 or PS4 controller to their PC will know that unlike the various Xbox controllers, it's a bit of a hassle. The adapter solves these hassles by letting you connect a DualShock 4 to PC and Mac wirelessly, and will enable every feature of the controller including vibration and motion sensors.
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 hard disk space; 2 GB or more of RAM
