Sony is working to stream PS4 games to both Mac and PC
Sony has announced that it is officially developing a new app aimed at enabling its PlayStation 4 console to stream games to both Macs and Windows-based PCs.
Earlier today, Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida announced on twitter that the company is working on an official Remote Play app for both operating systems on desktops and notebooks.
Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. 😀
Presently, Remote Play is limited to Sony devices, such as the Vita, the PlayStation TV and newer Xperia smartphones and tablets. New PlayStation games are required to be compatible with Remote Play, save for titles that use peripherals, such as PlayStation Move.
Previously, Remote Play has been heavily punted on Sony’s Xperia tablet range; in particular, the Z4 Tablet.
Sony’s aim with introducing Remote Play to both Mac and Windows PCs is to expand its services to cross-platform playability. Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that with the Xbox One’s November 12 update alongside Windows 10, Xbox One users would be able to stream console games to their PCs.
