PlayStation Now and DualShock 4 Wireless Adapter Coming to PC

The PlayStation streaming service launches in Europe soon, with a North American release following.

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that PlayStation Now, the PlayStation streaming service for PlayStation 3 games on newer platforms, is coming to Windows PCs soon. The service will be launching in Europe "soon", with a North American launch following shortly thereafter.

"This will bring a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles to Windows PC for the very first time, including entries in the Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank franchises, as well as beloved PS3 games like The Last of Us and Journey. Current subscribers have a new way to access PS Now's library of over 400 games, and the PC app provides a new way for even more gamers to discover and play the service," wrote PlayStation Network SVP Eric Lempel on the official PlayStation blog.

The recommended specifications for PlayStation Now on PC have been released as well:

  • Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10
  • 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
  • 300 MB or more; 2 GB or more of RAM
  • Sound card; USB port
  • 5Mbps internet connection minimum (Wired connection recommended)

A number of players already connect their DualShock 4 to PC via a USB cable, but Sony has also announced the all-new DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor. This allows the controller to work wirelessly and will also enable all DualShock 4 features, including the touch pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack. The Adaptor will cost $24.99.

PlayStation Now is still a subscription service, costing $19.99 per month, or $44.99 for 3 months. The full list of PlayStation Now titles can be found here.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
