A couple of weeks ago, we reported a rumor from French website Gamekult about PlayStation Now on PC being announced on August 23rd.

This has just been confirmed officially with a blog post. The PlayStation Now app will be available shortly in Europe and then in North America, bringing many PlayStation exclusive games to PC – albeit indirectly – for the very first time.

The streaming service (powered by Gaikai technology) offers subscribers access to over 400 games such as Uncharted, God of War, The Last of Us, Ratchet & Clank and more; you can find the entire list here.

The system requirements to use PlayStation Now on PC are quite low, of course.

  • 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

You’ll also need a 5mbps connection at minimum, ideally a wired one. PS Now has a 7-Day free trial, after which to continue playing games you may choose either a one month subscription for $19.99 or a three month subscription for $44.99.

Sony also announced a DualShock 4 USB Wireless adaptor, due to be available in early September for a retail price of $24.99. As you would expect, this will allow you to connect a DualShock 4 controller to a PC/Mac wirelessly though of course you can just use the USB cable if you don’t really need a wireless connection.
