According to sources close to French gaming site Gamekult, it has been rumoured that Sony’s paid subscription service, PlayStation Now, may be heading to the PC. If true, this means that PC players will soon be able to play The Last of Us, Uncharted, and other PlayStation exclusive classics.
Sources claim the service will debut on PC in Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK followed by the US and Canada a week later, which sounds a bit odd. I would imagine a UK or US release first, in terms of global roll-out.
It’s unknown too if the full selection of games would be available, but considering the platform operates via streaming, it’s not out of the question whether it will function on PC, as it can work on your Sony TV as long as you plug a controller into it directly. It’s exciting, and would be a massive move for Sony and the PlayStation brand.
While PlayStation Now relies on a solid internet connection, bear in mind that without it, games may feel laggy or your input may feel unresponsive. It’s an ambitious platform, but it has its faults in that regard.
A PlayStation Now subscription can cost up to $100 a year, or $20 per month or $45 for three months. You can also take advantage of a seven-day free trial to see what it’s all about, which you can access here.
