Even more places for PlayStation.

Sony’s streaming game service will soon bring its sizeable library to PC, the company announced today via the PlayStation Blog. PlayStation Now gives players access to over 400 games from across the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita, and they can stream the titles on any compatible device.

Up until this point it has only been available on PlayStation systems or PlayStation TV, but Windows PC will soon become compatible as well. The app launches overseas in Europe soon, with North America to follow shortly after. Sony also provided the recommended specs to run the app, and it should be noted that a minimum connection speed of 5Mbps is required to run PS Now on any device.

  • 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

Along with bringing PS Now to Windows, Sony also announced a wireless USB adaptor for the DualShock 4. The adaptor will launch in early September with suggested retail price of $24.99, and allows you to connect your controller to either a Mac or PC wirelessly. Every feature you’d normally have with the DualShock on PS4 will be enabled, as long as the gaming application you’re using supports them.

There’s no exact release date for PS Now on PC, but it will be launching this fall. You can get one month of the service for $19.99 or 3 months for $44.99. Check out the full list of game’s available through the service right here.
