playstation nowBack in 2014, Sony announced a new service called PlayStation Now. For those hearing about it for the first time, it’s basically this cloud-gaming streaming service where gamers get to stream and play PlayStation 3 games on their console, or in some cases on Sony’s Bravia TVs. It’s a good idea, but how would you like it if the feature debuted on the PC?

According to a post by French website Gamekult (via PlayStation Lifestyle), it seems that Sony could be bringing the subscription service onto the PC, and that the announcement could be made later this month. The translation of the post reads, “According to our information, the announcement is scheduled for 23 August with a launch in stride Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK in the first place, while the United States and Canada should be able to enjoy a week later.”

It adds, “Availability dates for France or Japan are not known, but it is already acquired it takes at least a PC running Windows 7, an internet connection at 5 MB / s or more and a compatible controller (preferably a DualShock 4) to enjoy 300 games catalog from their computer.” The DualShock requirement doesn’t really come as a surprise as Sony has stated before that their games have been designed for the DualShock interface in mind.

Take it with a grain of salt for now, but if the 23rd of August dates are real, we guess we won’t have to wait much longer to find out.
