PS4 titles heading to PC via PlayStation Now streaming service


But will Aussies gain access?

PS4 titles like Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us: Remastered will soon be playable on PC via Sony’s PlayStation Now streaming service.

Sony took to the PlayStation Blog to announce that PlayStation Now — a subscription-based service available on PS4 and PC — will soon offer the chance to stream PS4 titles. Sony will be privately testing PS4 titles in the coming weeks, it said.

PlayStation Now currently works on a multitude of platforms — including PS3, PS Vita, Bravia and Samsung TVs and more — but support will end on everything but PC and PS4 on 15 August 2017. This move was made to build a better user experience on the remaining platforms.

The announcement comes less than a month after Microsoft detailed its Xbox Games Pass, a subscription-based service offering more than 100 Xbox 360 and Xbox One titles on the Xbox One itself. Titles on the Xbox Games Pass are downloaded to a console rather than streamed — something that’s potentially holding PlayStation Now from hitting Australia and our internet-deprived shores.

We’ve asked Sony about Australian availability of the PlayStation Now service. We’ll keep you posted.
