PlayStation Now Will Soon Be Available For Streaming PlayStation 4 Games To Windows PC
You want to play PlayStation 4 games but you do not own one? However, if you own a well-built PC, you might just as well be starting to play those games on your Windows PC soon.
Sony announced last Monday that its subscription streaming service, PlayStation Now would be supporting PlayStation 4 games, which would provide PS4 and Windows PC players' access on-demand to its supported titles.
In an announcement via a blog post, Sony said that the library for its streaming library is expected to expand this year with games playable on both the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via a single subscription. The blog stated there are currently 483 titles that can be streamed from PlayStation Now, right now.
PlayStation Now costs $20 a month and has a variety of content in its library, Kotaku reported. Using its own cloud streaming technology, players would be able to access its entire catalog, select one game, and start playing immediately without the need to wait for downloads.
Players can also do cloud saves, which would allow players to log back into their accounts and continue playing on another PlayStation 4 or even to a Windows PC. Additionally, for those who are not subscribed to the service yet, Sony enjoins that it would be the perfect time to try the service. Players would be able to gain access for seven days at no charge.
With the lack of specific details regarding the service expansion, Sony said that it plans to conduct testing with PS4 games in PlayStation Now in the next few weeks. Apparently, Sony will send out email invitations to those who would want to participate in its beta program, according to c|net.
Last month, Sony announced that it would be dropping PlayStation Now support on August 15, on all platforms except the PC and PlayStation 4. Sony said the aim is for the company to build a better user experience to the PS4 and Windows PC. Removed from the service includes the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, Sony Bravia TVs, Samsung smart TVs, and Sony Blu-ray players.
