Playstation Now on PC, Dualshock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor Announced

PS Now on PC Leaked
Sony seems to be getting ready for their upcoming conference with more news developing that Playstation Now will be released on PC. The service currently brings Playstation 3 games via internet stream to both the PS4 and PS Vita. Also coming to a PC near you is the announcement of the PS4 USB Wireless Adaptor for PC.

According to Gamekult Playstation Now will launch in Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK with Canada and United States a week later. Sony first started its foray into cloud based gaming with its purchase of streaming service Gaikai in July of 2012. With internet speeds only getting faster, it would appear that their 380 million USD acquisition may finally be paying off.

According to Playstation.Blog the Dualshock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor was also announced and will be released in Early September. The adaptor was given a $24.99 suggested retail price and will connect your Dualshock 4 to your PC or Mac wirelessly. The controller will be completely enabled including vibration and stereo headset jack as long as the gaming application supports these features.

The adaptor is being advertised alongside Playstation Now but will reportedly also work for PS4 Remote Play on PC and Mac. The Remote Play app is available here and lets you play your PS4 on your PC. With over 400 Games available on Playstation Now and rumored Playstation 2 games to be added soon, it seems like Sony games are going to be preserved for a long time.

    Very interesting! Although I recently acquired my backwards compatible PS3 only 4 or so months ago…

    Regarding PS Now, there’s only a couple games I’m interested in atm, but apparently there’s only mention for up to 3 months of subscription? The prices are also a bit steep for mainly streaming PS3 games for the most part. With the PS plus subs becoming more expensive, dunno how many people will get into this.
