It’s only been a matter of days since someone came up with a third-partyapp for bringing PlayStation Remote Play to PCs, but it shouldn’t be too long before an official solution is available.
Sony president Shuhei Yoshida has taken to Twitter to confirm that an authentic PS4 Remote Play application is on the way to home computers.
Best of all, the service will support both PC and Mac, which is more than we can say about the Windows-centric Xbox One.
“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 and Mac,” Yoshida wrote on Twitter.
You have to feel for the developer known as Twisted, who was selling his unofficial Remote Play software for £6.50 a pop, but maybe he’ll take some comfort from the fact that his project probably forced Sony’s hand on this one.
Sony already offers PS4 remote gaming on the Vita and mobile devices, but is yet to announce a release date for the PC and Mac apps.
