PlayStation Now, the platform that gives access to all PlayStation titles on demand, is set to be launched for Windows PC starting in Europe and then making its way to North America.

Not only this initiative is going to bring an extensive range of PlayStation titles for gamers to play using their Windows PC, but Sony is also making possible to use a DualShock 4 USB wireless controller adapter for PlayStation 4 gamepads on both Mac and Windows computers. The latest device is set to be unveiled at the earliest of September with an expected price of $24.99 ($29.99 CAD).

The adapter reportedly functions with PlayStation Now, but the really exciting news for PS4 users is its compatibility with PS4 Remote Play that lets users play on a local connection, unlike the previous physical USB cable connection to your PS4 controller. The featured controller functions the device offers include: buttons, analog sticks, touchpad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack. If you still haven’t downloaded the remote, get it here.

Noteworthy classics include the Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank franchises, along with popular PS3 games like The Last of Us and Journey.

PlayStation Now was released in June of last year and features 400 games in its library. Current PS Now subscribers can use a different approach to access the library. The streaming feature saves you the trouble of having to install each title locally and saves your progress so gamers can get to gaming anywhere.
