Sony today confirmed that its next PlayStation 4 update will include Remote Play for PC and Mac.
The feature will let you play PS4 games on your PC. Sony confirmed in November that it was in the works, and now it's set to roll out in the next update, though a firm date has not yet been announced.
A beta for the 3.50 update, codenamed Mushasi, rolls out tomorrow, but it will not include Remote Play. Eager games will instead have to wait for the official release.
Microsoft's Xbox One already lets players hook up a controller to their Windows 10-based PC to remotely stream titles—a feature currently available from Sony only via the PS Vita, PlayStation TV, and Xperia devices.
What beta testers can expect from this week's update is Dailymotion access and a handful of new social features. Released in January, Dailymotion allows gamers to livestream directly to the video-sharing websites; users can also find new content based on interests. Plus, by connecting to a Facebook account, folks can share favorite videos to their social media feed.
This update also makes it easier to play with friends: Using the Play Together tool, see what other members of a party are doing, then join their game or start a new one together. Turn on the Friend Online Notification option to be alerted whenever friends sign on.
Just want to fight some bad guys or veg out to the latest action film without interruption? Go incognito via the Profile or Quick Menu to appear offline to other gamers.
Sony also added the ability to schedule a future gameplay session with friends on the system. When your event starts, registered players will automatically be added to a party.
The news comes as Sony this week confirmed that it will shut down the PlayStation Store for PlayStation Portable (PSP). "PSP system users will be able to purchase PSP content from the web-based PlayStation Store at store.playstation.com, and also access past purchases from the Download list on their PSP system. Users will continue to have the ability to make in-game purchases from their PSP system," Sony said.
