Earlier this week, an unofficial streaming app debuted, allowing those on a PC to play PlayStation 4 titles. Shuhei Yoshida, Sony CE's President of Worldwide Studios, has confirmed on Twitter that Sony is working on an official Remote Play app for the PC and Mac:
Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. :DSome people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. :D— Shuhei Yoshida (@yosp) November 27, 2015November 27, 2015
While Sony had Remote Play functionality enabled for the PlayStation 3 and PS4, it was limited to its Xperia-branded devices as well as the PS Vita and PlayStation TV. With the Xbox One now able to stream games to Windows 10, Sony is leveling the playing field by introducing a similar feature. Mac compatibility will only make things that much more interesting.
