The new adaptor makes it possible to connect your DUALSHOCK(R)4 wireless controller to your PC or Mac via Bluetooth(R), enhancing compatible applications including PlayStation(R)4 (PS4(TM)) Remote Play on Windows PC and Mac. With the Adaptor you can enjoy a cable-free Remote Play experience, with all the intuitive features of the DUALSHOCK(R)4 wireless controller at your fingertips.

The DUALSHOCK(R)4 Wireless Controller and Adaptor are also compatible with the PlayStation(TM)Now (PS Now) subscription service on Windows PC, available on 24th August in the UK, Belgium and Netherlands. Players can download the PS Now Windows PC app to gain instant access to an ever expanding library of over 300 classic PlayStation(R) titles, streamed straight to your computer.

    I think I may just give PS Now a trial run on PC when the service is available here in the States. I’m curious to see how well it works and to be able to tell all my PC Master Race buddies that I was able to play The Last of Us and Uncharted on PC. You know, just to really grind their gears and piss them off. LOL
