Sony expands Remote Play capabilities to PC and Mac

Sony had previously only allowed owners of the PlayStation Vita handheld console, the PlayStation TV set-top box, and select Sony smartphones and tablets to use the feature. Although the feature has been around since the days of the PlayStation 3 and the PSP, Sony has never made any moves to expand it to other arenas.

Sony has now expanded to Mac and PC following the announcement that Microsoft would allow remote gameplay for Xbox One users that also had a Windows 10 PC. However Sony offers greater functionality with the inclusion of Mac computers and its remote capability, whereas the Microsoft system must be connected through a home network.

Developers must make their games compatible with Remote Play if they don’t use peripheral controllers. As a result most users will find that their entire collection of games can now be played on a PC or Mac.

Remote Play at up to 720p and 60fps

Remote Play will work with the latest versions of the Mac operating systems, namely OS X 10.10 Yosemite and OS X 10.11 El Capitan. PC users running Windows 8.1 or 10 or later will be able to use the feature.

Users can control the games using a DualShock 4 controller connected to the PC or Mac via a USB cable. The system will give several resolution and frame rate options depending on your internet bandwidth.

The default resolution is 540p, with a maximum of 720p. Frame rate is set at 30fps but can go as high as 60fps.

Users will be able to start using Remote Play as soon as Sony updates PS4s tomorrow. Mac and PC users will then be able to download the software from the PlayStation Remote Play website to start using the feature.

It just got a whole lot easier to play your PS4 games on different devices around your house.
