Sony offers PlayStation Now to PC users

Everybody doesn’t have the luxury of owning consoles and hence cannot enjoy the brilliant titles which both PlayStation and Xbox have to offer.Sony not wanting to exclude anybody from this luxury has decided to open up its library to of PlayStation Now titles to people who own PC’s.

After connecting a PS 4 controller through a new USB dongle to your PC and you will be able to enjoy console titles on the small screen. After this thought has been converted into reality later into the year anybody who owns a laptop which has Windows 7 or higher would be able to download PlayStation Now.

This will give them access to more than 400 and allow players to play games from the Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank and God of War franchises which are currently compatible with PS4 and selected televisions. You will be able to play the games through a Dualshock 4 controller which you can connect with a MicroUSB cable or go the wireless route and use a Wireless USB Adaptor.

Other than Windows 7 or higher being a requirement, it is recommended that your PC has a 3.5 gHz Intel i3 or 3.8 gHz AMD A10 processor as well as a minimum of 2 GB RAM and 300 MB free storage space. Another thing you should keep in mind if you plan on downloading the PlayStation Now library is to have a super-fast internet connection.

Sony suggests using something that gives an at least 5 Mpbs speed. Sony didn’t say anything about making this system compatible with MacBooks. On the other hand those who own a Windows Computer meeting all the requirements will be getting ahold of it soon if they live in Europe, with the North American individuals up next. The Dualshock 4 Adaptor has a price tag of US$24.99.
