Following the leak of this news earlier today, Sony has now made it official with a posting on the PlayStation blog which confirmed the reports – Sony’s PlayStation Now service is making the jump to Windows PC.
PS Now is a subscription service that lets you stream hundreds of PS3 games. It is currently available for PS4, but will finally be available on Windows PC.
When it is, it will bring with it a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles that have never been available on the platform before such as the “Uncharted,” “Infamous,” “Killzone,” “God of War” and “Ratchet and Clank” franchises along with acclaimed one-offs like “The Last of Us,” “Heavy Rain,” “Journey,” “The Unfinished Swan,” “Catherine” and “Shadow of the Colossus”. It will sadly not include PS4 exclusive titles though like “Uncharted 4,” “Bloodborne,” “Infamous: Second Son” and “Until Dawn”.
The games will be accessible through a PC app, while a sold separately $25 the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor will also be available and allow you to connect a DualShock 4 to PC and Mac wirelessly – allowing for not just playing PS Now on a computer but also for PS4 Remote Play on PC and Mac.
The app will launch overseas in parts of Europe soon and will go to North America shortly thereafter.
A specific date hasn’t been announced but could well be at the upcoming PlayStation event on September 7th where both a PS4 Slim and the next generation PS4 Neo are expected to make their debuts.
