Here are the recommended specs for running PS Now on your PC:

Yesterday, Joel Smith, Art Director of PlayStation VR Worlds, published a blog post discussing about building virtual reality worlds. His blog post leaked the information that PlayStation Now game streaming service is coming to Windows PCs. Actually, one of the images in his post had caption as “PS Now on PC Announce Post by PlayStation Europe, on Flickr”.

This image caption is not the only source for this news. French gaming news site Gamekult reported earlier this month that PS Now would first be announced for Windows on August 23. Also, there was an Amazon France product listing titled “DualShock USB adapter for PlayStation 4,” which may be the solution for Windows PCs to connect to DualShock 4 controller for playing PS Now Games.
