Sony Announces PS4 Remote Play for Windows and Mac

With the Xbox One allowing users to stream their games to Windows 10 PCs and tablets, Sony has finally said it's working on a solution to allow PS4 owners to stream games to Windows and Mac PCs. At the moment, you can only stream PS4 games to the PS Vita and select Sony smartphones and tablets. Dubbed as Remote Play, the feature should make its way to non-Sony devices eventually.

"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," tweeted Shuhei Yoshida, Sony's President of Worldwide Studios.

The news comes days after an unofficial paid solution called Remote Play PC was announced by a developed called Twisted. We won't be surprised if this move prompted the Japanese-based company to seriously consider bringing Remote Play to other platforms. At this time it's unclear if any action will be taken against Twisted or if the developer's work might find its way into Sony's solution.

Regardless of the means, the end result is PS4 owners have another feature to look forward to aside from backwards compatibility that should be revealed in its entirety at PlayStation Experience next month.
