Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that the PlayStation Now streaming app is available today for Windows PCs in North America. The app lets PC users access more than 400 PlayStation 3 titles, including exclusives like Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank.
This month, the service is also getting six new games: Mafia II, Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution, Heavy Rain, and Borderlands: Ultimate Edition. In October, the service will be adding Castlevania: Harmony of Despair to the catalog.
For a limited time, the 12-month subscription to PlayStation Now is being discounted. In addition to the 7-day free trial, players can pick up the 12-month sub for $99.99. That's a big drop from the current subscription options, which include $44.99 for 3 months or $19.99 for 1 month.
All games can be played with a DualShock 4 connected to your PC via USB, but players can also pick up the 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 costs $24.99.

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