Sony PlayStation Now To Stream PS4 Games To PC

Gaming-geeks can now gear up to play PlayStation 4 games on their PC. Sony has recently announced that it is looking at bringing its PlayStation Now streaming service to PCs soon.

Sony PlayStation Now, which was unveiled at CES 2014, currently hosts a series of PS3 games for PS4 and PCs. Under the current setup, the service lets players stream legacy PS3 games (about 483 games) on PS4 and PCs at a monthly expense of $19.99. Sony announced the development in a blog post, which goes on to confirm that Sony will kick off a private test with PS4 games on the PlayStation Now. While Sony has not revealed when the service might be available for players, it is definitely a welcome introduction, given that the subscribers will not have to pay any additional amount to avail it.

In a recent development, Sony announced that it will be discontinuing the PS Now service on PS3, PlayStation TV, PS Vita and all smart-TVs and Blu-ray players that supported the PlayStation Now service. The decision was announced in August with the idea of focusing on better service for PS4 and PCs, which will most likely be the only devices to stream PS4 games.

This development has come up in the wake of Microsoft’s announcement of the Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s monthly games subscription offer. The Xbox Game Pass offers around 100 titles from the Xbox 360 and Xbox One libraries, amounting to a monthly subscription of $10. While the PS Now functions using Cloud Streaming, Xbox allows players to download and install games on your hard dive and is expected to launch towards the end of first quarter.
