Sony has announced that their PlayStation Now game streaming service is coming to PC, though no specific release date was given. PS Now allows players to stream older games, with the actual work being done on servers far away, with the video of the game being streamed to your device. Until now only PS4, and certain other Sony devices. Heading to PC now opens up the PS Now service to many more people, and makes previously PlayStation exclusive games available to millions more gamers.
Along with this came the announcement of a Dualshock 4 PC adapter. “This adaptor will let you connect a DualShock 4 to PC and Mac wirelessly, and will enable every feature of the controller you know and love: buttons, analog sticks, touch pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack – as long as the gaming application supports these features.” The Dualshock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor will retail for $24.99 and arrive in September.
With the shift to PC, PlayStation Now has a new set of system requirements. Your PC will need to be up to these specs or above: 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 and USB port.
