PlayStation on Windows PC becomes a realitySony's PlayStation Now streaming game service is coming to Windows computers this fall.
[MUSIC] I'm just kicking back with some PlayStation on a Windows PC. No game console here. I'm streaming these PlayStation games the internet with Sony's PlayStation Now game service. All you need is a Windows PC, a dual shock 4 controller, a 5Mbps internet connection And a Playstation Now subscription to play. You;ll use a phone charge cable to plug in your controller, or use this $25 wireless dongle. It'll let you play games that never came to Windows until now. That's not the only catch. Playstation now is also pretty pricey. $20 a month or $45 for three for games that run at a fairly low 720p resolution not full HD. And while you can save your game, your old Playstation 3 saved games won't come along for the ride. The quality of streaming can depend on how far away you are from Sony's servers, too, but a seven day free trial does let you try before you buy. PlayStation Now is coming to Windows this August in the UK and Europe and shortly afterwards in the US and Canada. We're looking forward to trying it this fall. [MUSIC]
