Microsoft has promised to bring future Xbox titles to Windows 10, and now Sony is making a similar offer. Soon, you won’t need to own a piece of PlayStation hardware in order to play PlayStation games. The PlayStation Now service came about after Sony paid $380 million to acquire streaming service Gaikai back in 2012. It did take them two years to convert it into PlayStation Now, but all that work means PS4 owners can enjoy playing streamed versions of PS3 titles for a monthly subscription. It’s not cheap though, costing $19.99 for a month or $44.99 for 3 months. However, soon you’ll be able to save some cash by not being forced to buy a console to access the service. Sony has announced that PlayStation Now is being made available on Windows PCs across Europe and North America. From wochit Tech.
