You will no longer need to own a PlayStation 4 to play PlayStation 4 games: Sony today announced it’s bringing PS4 titles to its PlayStation Now service. That also means you will be able to play PS4 games on your PC.
If you’re not familiar, PlayStation Now is a $20 cloud service that basically streams you game footage, just like Netflix video, to your PS4 or PC. Except, of course, that you can interact with the video. Though stream quality depends heavily on your internet connection, it can provide a viable alternative to actually owning a console – if you have a strong internet connection and aren’t sensitive to the latency.
