Sony recently made an announcement that may be of interest for gamers that own both a PS4 console and a PC. The Japanese company's game streaming service, PlayStation Now, will be adding the ability to stream PS4 games to PC. For now, the precise date that Sony will put this feature into effect is unknown, but the company's blog posting sets it for later this year (whenever that is). 

Streaming gaming content to PC is not a new trick for PlayStation Now, however, as the service currently allows users to legacy PS3 games to the newer PS4 console and PC, with it costing roughly $19.99 (R262) a month. Whether there'll be a change in price when streaming PS4 games remains to be seen.   

With Microsoft also announcing its own version of this service, Xbox Game Pass, earlier this week, which offers Xbox One and Xbox 360 games to subscribers for $9.99 in select regions (not South Africa), streaming looks be the new battleground for console makers.
