Sony has officially launched the PlayStation Now game streaming service for Windows PC owners in the U.S. The service previously launched for PC gamers in UK, Belgium and the Netherlands last week.
The service allows gamers to access over 400 PlayStation 3 games via Internet streaming for a subscription fee. The list of games includes titles from franchises like the God of War, Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted series that have previously only been available on Sony's PlayStation consoles.
The service costs $19.99 for one month or $44.99 for three months; there is also a free seven-day trial. For a limited time, Sony is also offering a year-long subscription for $99.99, or 55% off the normal monthly price. Sony says that PCs should have at least a 5Mbps Internet speed connection to access PlayStation Now, with a wired connection highly recommended. Here are its other hardware specs:
- Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10
- 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
- 300 MB or more; 2 GB or more of RAM
- Sound card; USB port
Sony also recommends using its DualShock 4 controller to play the games on PlayStation Now. The company is also selling the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor for $24.99 for those controllers, and they will go on sale in early September.
