Sony says an upcoming official app will provide game streaming from the PS4 to both Windows and OS X

Sony has confirmed that it will extendthe PlayStation 4's remote play functionality, allowing users tostream their games to both PC and Mac. This follows an indie app release that provides similar functionality toPC users.

Sony president ShuheiYoshida made the announcement on Twitter, stating that "Somepeople asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, andyes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac."

The third-party app from developer Twisted thatprovides the same functionality, though limited to Windows PCs, is priced at US$10. Sony hasn't made any announcements regarding thepricing or release of its own solution, but based on itstrack record, it's seems unlikely that the company will charge for the service.

The PS4's built-in Remote Play already lets you stream games to the portable PS Vita, but the need to purchase the handheld (and the lack of secondary shoulder buttons on the Vita) prevents it from being aheadline feature of the bigger console. Sony's renewed interest in Remote Play could be in response to Microsoft recently adding the ability to stream games from the Xbox One console to Windows 10 PCs.
