It is no news that a smart developer came up with the great idea to launch an unofficial app to stream PlayStation4 to personal computers, but what is news is that barely two days after this, Sony woke up and announced it is launching the real official app to do just that shortly.

Shuhei Yoshida of Sony tweeted that “Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC; yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC and Mac.” This means Windows PC and Mac OS X PC would be able to stream gaming titles from PS4 when the time really comes.
This might not be the best of business news to the smart alec who developed his one unofficial app to stream PS4 games to PC, and not even at a time when he just started charging $10 for the app. And while he must have silently been working on the app for close to a year, his launch gave Sony the required nudge to do something about the issue.

According to the developer who called himself Twisted, his main motivation for developing the app was purely economic. "The only way to support this is to charge for the app, all my previous projects have been free and I don't want to have to, but sadly it's the only way to support my living costs," and now Sony has spoilt his show.
