Sony has just announced that tomorrow’s system software update for PS4 will enable Remote Play for the PC and Mac. This is a feature that a lot of gamers were looking forward to, and was brought originally to our attention via the unofficial method produced by YouTube’s ‘twisted0ne1989’.
As Sony noted, there will be three resolutions to choose from and two framerate options. In addition, Sony claimed that this app will be supported only by Windows 8.1, Windows 10 or later, OS X 10.10 and OS X 10.11.
