This (Unofficial) App lets you Stream PS4 games to the PC

Sony logoSay you’re playing games on the TV in the living room when someone else wants to use the TV to catch up on the news. Instead of stopping your gaming session, if you own the PlayStation 4, you will be able to continue your session by streaming the game onto the PS Vita. But what if you don’t own the PS Vita?

While Sony does not officially support streaming onto the PC (unlike Microsoft’s Xbox One), the good news is that thanks to developer Twisted, there is now an unofficial app that will allow you to do just that. Dubbed Remote PC Play, basically this app will trick the PS4 into thinking that your PC is a recognizable remote play device, thus letting gamers stream their PS4 games onto their PCs.

However to use the app, you will have to pay for it as Twisted will be charging $10 for it. According to his blog, “I’d like to work on this project full time, adding features, getting it stable and porting it to other platforms which I know a lot of you want! The only way to support this is to charge for the app, all my previous projects have been free and I don’t want to have to but sadly its the only way to support my living costs.”

We suppose it’s only fair given that there are mobile apps that cost as much, if not more, and if you are a hardcore gamer who sees the potential of such an app, then perhaps the $10 price tag is justifiable. The app is expected to be released later today so do keep an eye out for it. In the meantime you can check out the video above to see the app in action.
