Sony has revealed the arrival of the very next video game streaming service of PlayStation Now on Windows and Europe. Gamers could use the USB adaptor to connect the Dualshock 4 controllers to any PC or Mac so all of its available features will also be used. To enhance the experience and make it feel like you're playing the games on a PlayStation, Sony is also releasing a DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adapter for $24.99.
Up to 400 PlayStation games are about to become playable on PC with the "PlayStation Now" offering by Sony.
Similar to the ramblings of insane conspiracy theorists, discussions about the death of gaming consoles have taken place throughout many schoolyards and forums since we were still bickering about Sonic v Mario back in '94.
Back in 2011, the PlayStation Network was hit with a major hack, compromising 77 million registered users. This marks the first time that PS Plus membership prices will increase in the US and Canada since the launch of the service in 2010. For those not in the know, PlayStation Now flings full games over your Internet connection to a console, smartphone, tablet, or Smart TV - but prior to this announcement, there was no way to access it on any capable Windows PC of your choosing.
A minimum 5Mbps connection is required to use PS Now on any device.

He went on to say that the USA does know that Iran is supporting the Assad regime and working with Russian Federation to do so. The US State Department on Monday said that it was unclear if Moscow's use of the airbase had "definitively stopped".
Do note that you can still connect a DualShock 4 controller to a PC using a USB cable, though the device does appear to streamline the process significantly. It obviously led a lot of developers to develop some of the best games including the Uncharted series, The Last of Us, God of War series and many more exclusives.
Players can download the PlayStation Now app to gain instant access to an ever-expanding library of over 300 classic PlayStation 3 titles, streamed straight to their computer. Nevertheless, Sony is number one right now in the console market, so I'm guessing they feel as if they can stretch their muscles when it comes to some anti-consumer practices. It costs $24.99 and will launch in the U.S. in September this year.
There is no word on the European PS Plus subscription, however they had their own price increase past year.
Stats wise, you nearly do better just running some games via emulation.
