How to Stream 400+ PlayStation Games on PC Right Now
Sony's PlayStation Now streaming service comes to North America; 12-month package returns.
Following its launch for PC last week in the UK, Sony's PlayStation Now game-streaming service is now available on Windows computers in North America. You can grab the free PlayStation Now app here to get started; there are more than 400 games in the catalog currently and more were added today.
Games added to PlayStation Now today include Mafia II, Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Civilization Revolution, Heavy Rain (featuring The Taxidermist DLC), and Borderlands: Ultimate Edition. Sony also revealed that Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is being added to the catalog in October, alongside other Halloween-themed games to be announced later.
To mark the launch of PlayStation Now for PC, Sony is bringing back its 12-month all-you-can-play subscription plan. Like it did before, this will cost $100, which Sony points out saves you 55 percent compared to what you'd pay if you were on the monthly plan.
A one-month subscription goes for $20, while a three-month package is available for $45. Games are also available to rent on an individual basis, with pricing dependent on the rental duration and title. Newcomers can try the service free for seven days.
PlayStation Now Recommended Specs:
- Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1, or 10
- 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
- 300 MB or more; 2 GB or more of RAM

PlayStation Now on PC works with the standard DualShock 4 controller when it's plugged in using a USB cable. Sony will also launch a wireless adapter in September, priced at $25.
