Sony has confirmed that their PlayStation Now service will be arriving for PC, launching in Europe first and soon after US gamers will also be able to partake in the streaming action.
This effort grants PC gamers access the wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles Killzone, Uncharted, God of War, Infamous, Ratchet & Clank, in addition to games like Journey and The Last of Us. At the moment PS Now subscribers have access to over 400 games, and the PC app will allow all of these games to be streamed straight over.
Sony has also introduced the new DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor, which launches in early September for $24.99. This adaptor will let you connect a DualShock 4 to PC and Mac wirelessly, and will enable every feature of the controller: buttons, analog sticks, touch pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack – as long as the gaming application supports these features.
Sony reveals that you can also use it for PS4 Remote Play on PC and Mac, just as long you have downloaded the Remote Play installer on your PC or Mac. Need the installer, get it here.

•Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10
•3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
