This will be the closest that we ever get to a The Last of Us PC port

For those of you who have no idea what PlatStation Now is, it is an online game streaming service which allows gamers to Stream a large library of PlayStation games to your PS3, PS4, PlayStation Vita and other select Sony devices for a monthly fee of £12.99. 

Now the application is available to download from Sony and is available in Europe with a planned North American launch soon. 

Alongside PlayStation Now Access Sony will also be releasing an official PS4 controller wireless adapter for PC, allowing gamers to use their PS4 controller on their PC wirelessly. This adapter will cost around $25 and will be released sometime in September.

At this time we do not know if Sony will be introducing an official PS4 controller driver for PC or if PlayStation Now will function with Xbox Controllers. 


   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.

This will bring a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles to Windows PC for the very first time, including entries in the Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank franchises, as well as beloved PS3 games like The Last of Us and Journey. Current subscribers have a new way to access PS Now’s library of over 400 games, and the PC app provides a new way for even more gamers to discover and play the service.

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.

Below are the PC system requirements for PLayStation Now on the PC, which does not specify whether or not PC users can use Xbox Style X-input controllers. Users will require at least a 5Mbps internet connection for an optimal experience. 

  • 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


If Sony has the server capacity to handle a large number of additional gamers on PlayStation Now, Sony has a chance to earn a large amount of money by opening up PlayStation now to PC.

With games like The Last of Us and Uncharted 1-3 on PlayStation Now we think a lot of PC gamers would be interested in the service, even if it is just for a single month to play some of Sony's exclusive titles.

I'm surprised that using a bluetooth adapter and DS4 windows wouldn't work. That's how I play these days.Quote

I only want this to play The Last Of Us, but tbh from the sound of it it's going to cost me $100 just to get there. Not sure it's worth it, might just pick up a PS3.Quote
