The PlayStation Now streaming service is making the great big leap from console to the personal computer, according to a post on the PlayStation Network (PSN) on Tuesday.
Confirmed by Senior Vice President Marketing & Head of PlayStation Network Eric Lempel, the PlayStation Now app is set to launch in North America and parts of Europe soon.
What exactly is PlayStation Now? PS Now is a subscription service that lets PS4 owners (and soon, PC users) stream hundreds of PS3 titles for play. The service currently has a free 7-day trial on their website.
Here’s the PlayStation Network’s spiel on the app’s upcoming migration to the PC:
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.
The PSN guys are also aiming to launch the new DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor that will allow players to wirelessly connect a DualShock 4 controller to a PC or Mac without hitches.
Here are the recommended specs for running PS Now on the PC:
- 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
- Minimum 5Mbps connection, preferably wired connectivity
