After a rough start of the week, when Sony announced that the prices for PlayStation Plus Memberships will change starting September, PlayStation fans can now rejoice because Sony has decided to move to PC, beginning today.
First Sony announced their new DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor which allows users to connect their DualShock controllers to PC wirelessly.
While the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor will not be available until September, and you don’t actually need it if you don’t mind using a USB cable, the second announcement is something you might want to try.
According to a recent post on the US PlayStation Blog, PlayStation Now is coming to PC. And yes you can use it starting today if you live in UK, Belgium or the Netherlands.
What does this mean?
Well, it means that for a monthly fee you will be able to stream some of the PlayStation exclusive titles on your Windows PC.
PlayStation Now is a service that already runs on PlayStation 4 for quite some time now, allowing fans to get access to over 300 PlayStation titles for $19.99/month or $44.99/3 months.
And now is coming to PC.
Now, you probably wonder if your PC can run PlayStation Now, so here are the official system requirements:
OS: Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10
CPU: 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
HDD: 300 MB or more
RAM: 2 GB or more
MISC: Sound card, USB port
PlayStation Now will be available in UK, Belgium and Netherlands earlier (meaning today) and at a later date in other countries.
So, if you wish to play Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, The Last of Us, God of War, or Killzone 3 on your PC, and you live in the countries mentioned above, you can do it right now.
The PlayStation Now library of games features over 300 titles and you can see them all here.
