Sony brings PS4 games to your Windows PC with PlayStation Now

Sony has announced the launch of PlayStation 4 (PS4) games on its PlayStation Now game streaming service. Because PlayStation Now is available on PC, that means gamers can now stream and play the PS4 games available through the service on Windows.

Currently, only 20 PS4 titles are available to stream through PlayStation Now. Here's a look:

  • Killzone Shadow Fall
  • God of War 3 Remastered
  • Saints Row IV: Re-Elected
  • WWE 2K16
  • Tropico 5
  • Ultra Street Fighter IV
  • F1 2015
  • Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition
  • Evolve
  • MX vs ATV Supercross Encore
  • Resogun
  • Helldivers
  • Broken Age
  • Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition
  • Grim Fandango Remastered
  • Akiba's Beat
  • Castlestorm Definitive Edition
  • Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky
  • Nidhogg
  • Super Mega Baseball

The move comes alongside the announcement that PlayStation Now also now sports more than 500 games in its catalog. Given PlayStation Now was previously limited to PS3 games, the vast majority of games available are from the previous generation. Still, the breadth is fairly impressive.

For its part, Microsoft recently launched its own take on a subscription game service, called Xbox Game Pass. Rather than relying on streaming, however, Xbox Game Pass allows subscribers to download the Xbox 360 and Xbox One games in its catalog for $10 per month — but only one Xbox One.

PlayStation Now is available for a $10 per month subscription with a 7-day free trial. If you're interested in checking it out, you can grab a 7-day free trial through Sony. Alternatively, if you'd rather stick to your own PS4 collection, you can just use the PS4's remote play feature, which lets you stream your own games from your PS4 to your PC.

  • Gaming everywhere baby
  • Surface Phone everywhere baby... Man, a full on Windows based Surface Phone, and applications like this keep popping up??.... Sick. Sick sick sick sick sick.
    Windows on Phone can't come soon enough.
  • OMG!!
  • PS games running on a PS streaming/emulator running on Microsoft. I luv it!!
  • Yep, yet another reason not to buy a PlayStation. Get this working on Xbox and who cares about exclusives. Those shouldn't exist anyway.
  • Nyc
  • I don't think I'll ever get on board with game streaming.
  • My Xbox runs Windows...   Now we need PSNow on Xbox!  ;)
  • Lol. Imagine if MS put full Windows on Xbox one day. That would be so funny.
  • But it would probably only run uwp apps ala windows s, which sonys software is not..its a classic win32 app
  • I wanted to buy a surface pro and a console but... I'll take a good desktop and a 2 in 1 with W10S lol.
  • I can pay a monthly subscription to play games that I already paid for?  Where do I sign up?
  • Wait... is a Ultra Street Fighter IV available for PS4? I thought they only had SFV? Why can't we get either on Xbox One? Sigh.
  • You can't because both Capcom and Sony are lame.
  • When PS Now is working, its amazing, I never had a PS3 and jumped on some great PS exclusives like Uncharted and Last Of Us, God Of War. There's days when it sucks and stutters and makes it not worth playing tho.
  • Microsoft Game Pass well be coming to PC..... soon.
  • PC master race. We're done here.
  • not exciting for me to try. i have my steam games and xbox games to play
  • Isn't this a little like getting a chinese takeaway order in a five star resteraunt? 
  • Sony is not that silly, they keep the real system-sellers and exclusives on their system. Apart from a few exclusives like God of War, Resogun and Dead Nation, this lists mostly contains games that have superior version on PC already. There are even mobile ports for some of them.
