#1
Sony's PlayStation Now (or PS Now) gaming service is expanding its reach to Microsoft's Windows platform. The service so far lets users run PlayStation games on PS4, micro-consoles and TV sets.

The senior vice president of PlayStation Network, Eric Lempel, announced on the company's blog post that the PlayStation Now app for Windows will be launching in Europe 'soon' and will also be reaching North America in some time.

The PlayStation Now service lets users access PlayStation exclusive titles on their Windows-based PCs. Some of the titles included are 'Uncharted', 'God of War', 'Ratchet & Clank' franchises, 'The Last of Us', 'Journey' and many more. "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," says Lempel.

To run PS Now, user's PC should feature Windows 7 (SP1) or higher OS versions; 3.5GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8GHz AMD A10 or faster processor; 2GB RAM or more; and a sound card. The company also mentions a minimum of 5Mbps connection as a requirement to run PS Now on any device.

Sony has also launched a new device, the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor. The device lets gamers wirelessly connect the DualShock 4 controller to PC and Mac "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."

Not only users can play video games from PlayStation Now, but they can also use it for PS4 Remote Play on PC and Mac. It costs $24.99 and will launch in the US in September this year
.
For those unaware, Sony is already working on an upgraded PS4 console codenamed 'Neo' . The console is expected to support 4K resolution and PS4 games.
