As any dedicated PC gamer will know, PlayStation are absolute boner-killers when it comes to exclusive games. In other words, they hoard their exclusive titles away from the rest of the gaming community.
So it’s either buy a PS4 to play Uncharted or suck it up and go without. I mean, you could go down the legally questionable path and download an unauthorised ROM (PC version), but we wouldn’t recommend that noise at all. Bad PC elitist!
Luckily, you won’t have to skirt the boundaries of the law anymore, because PlayStation are making some of their games available on PC. Bonza!
Launching in Europe “soon” and in the US “shortly thereafter”, the PlayStation Now app for Windows will allow PC gamers access to famous PlayStation franchises like God of War, Uncharted and The Last of Us to name a few.
And it wouldn’t be an authentic PlayStation experience if you didn’t get to use their patented controller, so the bloody geniuses have made a wireless adapter to connect it to ya computer. Feel the powerful vibes and excellent features of the DualShock 4 controller.
You’ll also be able to use the PS4 Remote Play application to control your PlayStation from your computer. Best used to scare the shit out of your siblings or play them some Shania Twain when they don’t expect it for a nice surprise.
There’s no word on when you’ll be able to access over 400 titles of sweet, sweet PlayStation goodness, but you can get ya hands on a wireless adapter on the 16th of September for $34.95.
Before you run out to grab one, you should probs make sure your computer can handle it. The recommended specs are Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10, 3.5GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8GHz AMD A10 or faster, 2GB of RAM or more, a sound card, USB port and a 5Mps internet connection at the least.
