Sony is bringing its PlayStation Now game streaming service to PC

Sony is bringing its PlayStation Now game streaming service to PC

August 23, 2016 | By Alex Wawro

More than a year after its official debut, Sony's PlayStation Now game streaming service is being prepped for launch on PC and Mac in the U.S. and Europe.

This is significant because it means a host of PlayStation games, many of which have heretofore been exclusive to the PlayStation hardware ecosystem, will soon be more easily (and legally) playable on personal computers.

In a post on Sony's PlayStation Blog today, PlayStation Network exec Eric Lempel announced that the company plans to roll out a PlayStation Now PC/Mac app in Europe "soon", with a North American launch due "shortly thereafter." Furthermore, the company plans to release a $25 USB wireless adaptor next month that syncs PlayStation 4 gamepads with a PC or Mac.

This follows on from Sony's initial efforts to make the PlayStation 4's Remote Play feature accessible on PC and Mac earlier this year, and matches up with competitor Microsoft's ongoing efforts to create a "complete gaming ecosystem" by (among other things) making Xbox games like Quantum Break playable on Windows 10.
