As a PlayStation 4 gamer I was excited to hear that Sony just dropped a huge announcement. Its PlayStation Now streaming service (PS Now from now on) was recently expanded to support PC as well, but the library only includes PlayStation 3 games at the moment .
Later this year, the library will start getting PlayStation 4 games too, which means that you’ll be able to play even those on a PC without owning a PlayStation console at all.
That said, it’s doubtful that Sony will allow the most recent releases (such as PS4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn) to appear on PS Now until some time has passed. Still, it’s better than nothing and those who intend to play on both PlayStation 4 and PC will be able to retain their progress via cloud saves regardless of where they’re playing.
Whilst Sony have not put a release date on this yet, they said on their official PlayStation Blog “In the next few weeks we’ll kick off a private test with PS4 games on PS Now. If you’re an active PS Now subscriber, keep an eye on your email in case you get an invitation.”
