Microsoft already allows Xbox owners to stream their games to PC and now Sony is following suit. The company today announced that its PlayStation Now cloud-based game streaming service is headed to PC. This means that PC gamers can get their hands on some of the best titles for PlayStation 4 like Uncharted. The service will go live in select markets soon, enabling gamers to play PlayStation games on their PCs.
The PlayStation Now game streaming service was initially launched for PlayStation 4 to enable owners of the new console to play PS3 games. A subscription costs $19.99 per month and provides streaming access to hundreds of titles. There are more than 400 titles currently available on PlayStation Now, including the likes of God of War, Resident Evil, and Uncharted.
To have a solid game streaming experience, Sony recommends that your PC should be running Windows 7 or up, it should have a 3.5GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8GHz AMD A10 or faster processor with more than 2GB of RAM. A sound card is also recommended. A minimum of 5Mbps internet connection is required to use PlayStation Now on any device.
Sony has said that PlayStation Now for PC will go live in Europe in the very near future and that it will be available in North America “shortly thereafter.”
