Just a week ago Sony teased Playstation owners that its PC streaming service would be launching "soon". Unlike the streaming feature on the Xbox One, the PS Now game stream feature does not connect to your PS4 but rather streams directly from the PS Now servers. As of today, August 30, not only can you stream games to your Windows PC but you have new games to try via PS Now.
Sony's official Playstation Blog dropped the news earlier today, announcing that Playstation Now subscribers are now able to stream their PS Now games to the PC. The service currently boasts 400+ games, six of which were added today:
- Mafia II
- Tomb Raider Game of the Year Edition
- Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
- Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution
- Heavy Rain (with The Taxidermist DLC)
- Borderlands: Ultimate Edition
If you are a current subscriber to PS Now or have considered joining the streaming service, you usually would have to pay a monthly fee of $19.99 or a three-month fee of $44.99. For a limited time, Sony is allowing current and new subscribers to enjoy PS Now for $99 for an entire year (an average of $8.25 per month).
To play PS Now games, you'll also need the wireless adapter or a USB cable to connect the controller to your PC. The wireless adapter is said to cost $24.99 and will be available in early September for purchase.
