PlayStation Now Coming to PC, DualShock 4 Adapter Announced

Have you ever looked at the library of PS3 games and thought to yourself, “Man, I’d love a chance to check out the Uncharted games, but I don’t own a PlayStation?” Well, you’re in luck, because today Sony confirmed rumors that soon, people will be able to stream PS3 games not only to their PS4, but also Windows PCs. The service looks to be released in Europe soon, and then North America shortly thereafter.

PlayStation Now itself is a cloud-based gaming platform that you can subscribe to for access to the entire library, or a single game. Sony recommends a decently fast internet connection (5MBps), and also recommends use of a DualShock controller, though it’s possible that the PC transition will not make this a requirement. Coming alongside the announcement is the news that a DualShock 4 adapter will be coming as well, toting a $24.99 price tag.

Though PS Now only has PS3 games at the moment, Sony has talked previously about adding in PS4 games, and possibly PSP, PSOne and PS2 games, if their CES Keynote was any indication. The current prices of the service are $19.99 for one month, and $44.99 for three months. Stay tuned for a launch date, and a list of games that will be added upon the app’s release.

I like that the controller is coming to PC though, god do I dread the Xbox controller, always have, always will. Reminds me of another controller I always hated (Nintendo GameCube).

Logitech controllers can be nice but for some reason I always liked the PS3 and now PS4 controllers.

I'm sure there'll be a workaround within...there probably already is actually. You know how quickly modding peoples work

There are games that I really want to play that are PS exclusives but I cant deal with a controller. I don't have the skill and patience. The 720/30 might be bad but I'd at least give it a try.

Sadly it's just streaming and not running on our machines. So we'll get sub 720p/30fps. Nah.. thanks.

But it's a step in the right direction at least.
