For some time now, Sony has been quietly operating Playstation Now, a service that lets you steam hundreds of PS3 games for a Netflix-like monthly fee. When Sony first announced Playstation Now back in 2014, they promised the service would be coming to a variety of platforms, but so far it’s only been available for PS4 and certain Sony smart TVs. Well, Playstation Now will soon be available to a much wider swath of users, as Sony has announced the service is coming to PC.
In order to play Uncharted, God of War and other PS3 classics on your PC, you’ll have to meet these relatively reasonable requirements…
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 is also releasing a new wireless USB adaptor, which will let you used your Playstation 3 and 4 controllers with your PC. You can see what it looks like below.
Sony hasn’t put an exact date on Playstation Now‘s PC debut, but it’s expected for next month. Playstation Now costs $20 per month, and grants you access to over 400 PS3 titles. The wireless USB adaptor costs $25, and will also arrive next month.
