PlayStation 4 Remote Play Feature Coming To PC Soon, Unofficially And At A Cost
While there doesn’t seem to be any chance of PlayStation 4 emulation on PC any time soon, PC users might still get to enjoy PS4 games on their PC pretty soon, although they would still need a PS4. Some developers have managed to create an unofficial app that allows PC users to use the PS4’s Remote Play feature.
The feature will work similar to Xbox One’s streaming feature for Windows 10 where users can stream content from their console to their PC. While it may seem kind of pointless, but it can be useful for some people who have their console in another room or would like to use headset/speakers connected to their PC.
Currently the official Remote Play feature is only available on PS Vita, certain Sony Xperia devices and PlayStation TV, but this app seeks to bring the experience to a desktop or laptop with also the added possibility of using keyboard/mouse for gaming, although the option is absent from Xbox One streaming. So it might not be available for PS4 streaming yet.
The developer behind this app would like to work on this project in a full time capacity, continuing to improve the apps stability and performance while simultaneously making it available on more and more devices. In order to achieve this, the developer is looking to release this app for the price of £6.50/$10, which isn’t much considering the price of some emulators are on Android.
