Next PlayStation 4 update includes game streaming to PCs and Macs

New, 25 comments

Sony's next major update to the PlayStation 4 will include the ability to stream games to a PC or Mac. Firmware version 3.50 is currently in beta testing, and includes the Remote Play feature. Beta testers aren't able to test it just yet, but Sony is promising it "soon." The update also includes the ability to set yourself offline and notifications to track when friends come online.

Sony's Remote Play apps for the PC and Mac will bring the company in line with Microsoft. The Xbox One currently includes game streaming to Windows 10, but Microsoft does not support streaming to Macs. Sony has not yet revealed an exact launch date for the new firmware, but the company says it will detail "additional key features" and its release date soon.
