Remember a little while ago when Sony filed a trademark for a new dongle that’ll bring native DualShock 4 support to PCs? Well, it’s finally become a reality as Sony unveiled the new peripheral yesterday alongside the announcement that their game-streaming service PlayStation Now would also be coming to PC.

Yesterday Sony unveiled the new wireless adapter which will soon become available to players which will bring support for the DualShock 4 on PC. While that’s a pretty decent announcement in itself, Sony had more to offer. Soon you’ll be able to play games like The Last of Us, and more on your PC.

PlayStation Now, Sony’s game streaming service which offers hundreds of games for a monthly fee, is coming to PC, starting with various European territories, with North America to follow thereafter.

In order to run PlayStation Now, you won’t need a demanding system either, Sony’s recommended specs are as follows:

  • Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10
  • 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
  • 300 MB or more; 2 GB or more of RAM
  • Sound card; USB port

PlayStation Now launches in the UK this week, with the adaptor becoming available later this month for a pretty reasonable price of $24.99.
