PlayStation Now game streaming is coming to PC

Get ready to play Uncharted on your computer: Sony has revealed that PlayStation Now game streaming is coming to PCs. The company says that PS Now will be available “overseas in parts of Europe soon and will come to North America shortly thereafter.” Sony recommends the following specs if you plan to partake in the service on your desktop:

  • 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

As part of the announcement, Sony also revealed a new wirelss USB adaptor to connect a DualShock 4 controller to a Mac or PC. It’ll be available next month for $24.99.

PS Now — which lets you stream hundreds of PS3 games for $19.99 a month — originally debuted on the PlayStation 4, before expanding to other platforms as well, including non-Sony hardware like Samsung smart TVs. PS Now currently features more than 400 games to stream, and while there’s some filler, that also includes big franchises like Ratchet & Clank, Resident Evil, God of War, and Uncharted.

Today’s news means that it’ll be the first time that the likes of Kratos and Nathan Drake grace a PC in playable form.
