Eric Lempel, Senior Vice-President of the PlayStation Network, dropped by the PlayStation Blog today to announce some exciting news. PlayStation Now will finally be making its way to PC!
Eric announced that PlayStation Now would first launch in Europe.
“We’re excited to announce that PlayStation Now is making the jump to Windows PC. The app launches overseas in parts of Europe soon and will come to North America shortly thereafter.”
He then talked about the new DualShock 4 Wireless adapter.
“We’re also introducing a new device, the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor, which launches in early September for a suggested retail price of $24.99 ($29.99 CAD). This adaptor will let you connect a DualShock 4 to PC and Mac wirelessly, and will enable every feature of the controller you know and love: buttons, analog sticks, touch pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack – as long as the gaming application supports these features.”
Here are the recommended specs for running PS Now on your PC:
- 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
Eric went on to say that the official launch dates would be announced at a later date.
