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
- MX vs ATV Supercross Encore
- Broken Age
- Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition
- Grim Fandango Remastered
- Akiba's Beat
- Castlestorm Definitive Edition
- Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky
- 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.
