Sony is officially implementing PS4 to PC streaming

Microsoft has already made it extremely clear that in Windows 10 you can play your Xbox games. It now seems Sony will follow suit with the PS4. I myself have experienced the majesty of game streaming while sitting at my on computer. Sony, while late to the party, it seems is finally joining in. Shuhei Yoshida said today on twitter

“Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. :D”. This is particularly awkward after at least on competitor announced last week they would be releasing a third party tool which would be doing the same thing.

If its like the Xbox version of streaming we can expect to see it working with low-latency, and not very much by way of extra features. The majority of my time with Xbox streaming has been spent on the high intensity multiplayer of Halo 5, and I can say I really was surprised, there is no latency, the games perform well, and I can frag just as well as I could sitting in front of the console. Full disclosure this is with a Netgear nighthawk and both the streaming console and PC hardwired. Hopefully Sonys addition of console to PC streaming will re-invograte my play on my PS4 which is currently just gathering dust.

About Fionna Schweit

Hi, Im fionna Fox! and i love video games. I have been playing video games since I could reach the keyboard. My first PC was a gateway (though dont ask me to recall the model number) and I remember starting most of my games out of DOS. Those were interesting years. My first console system was an Nintendo 64, on which i played a lot of GoldenEye and StarFox 64 and even more gauntlet dark legacy. Now i mostly play PC games, though i do own a Xbox one (mostly for halo). My favorite types of games are rogue likes, and anything thats an RTS, I have a soft spot for anything in the Warhammer universe as well.
