Sony Confirms, PS Now Coming To PC :

As per the announcement made by Sony on the PlayStation blog :
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.
Sony is 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.

What Is PS Now ?

PlayStation Now (PS Now) is a cloud gaming service developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The platform allows users to pay for access to a selection of original PlayStation 3 titles on either a per-game basis or via a subscription, with plans to offer PlayStation 4 titles in the future, and perhaps also PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable titles.

Non-PlayStation devices will need a DualShock 3 or 4 controller for the service, as Sony believes that the games have been designed and best played with the DualShock interface in mind, while PlayStation brand devices can use their respective native game controllers.Sony also recommends that players have a 5 Mbps internet connection at least to achieve what they consider good performance.

The List Of Games :

Currently all of the games available to stream in PlayStation Now are PlayStation 3 games. There are over 400 such games available to stream on the PlayStation Now Open Beta service as of mid-2015, and new games are being added each week.

Also as of 2015, there are two ways to stream games in PlayStation Now, either as a subscription based service like Netflix, allowing unlimited access to all games covered by the subscription model, or users can rent games individually as can be done previously, usually available to rent in one of four time-frames: 4-hour, 7-day, 30-day, and 90-day. There are two pricing options in North America for the subscription service: $19.99 for one month, and $44.99 for three months.
