Sony has this week revealed that you will soon be able to play your PlayStation 4 games on your PC or Mac using the console’s Remote Play feature, catching up to what the Xbox One can do with a Windows 10 PC, but adding onto that with functionality for the Mac and allowing you to control your PS4 whilst outside of your home network.
Currently the Xbox One can only be controlled when you are on the same network.
The news was confirmed by PlayStation Worldwide’s boss, Shuhei Yoshida via a Tweet that he sent last night.
Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. 😀

As of yet we don’t know when the functionality will become available however.
This news comes after an unofficial app was released by the independent developer Twisted, who plans to release software that allows users to do the same but at the price of $10.
Kotaku took a look at the software, but say that it is extremely laggy, but provides similar functionality to what we expect the official version would, that said we do hope that Sony’s version is a little cleaner.
