PlayStation 4 update for Remote Play on Windows and Mac comes out Wednesday




Sony has announced that Wednesday 3:50 system update for the PlayStation 4 is released. The update makes Remote Play on Windows and Mac computers available, with a maximum resolution of 720p at 60fps.

On the PlayStation blog Sony makes all the details about the Remote Play functionality known . It is possible to stream images of the PlayStation 4 to a Windows or Mac computer with resolutions of 360p, 540P or 720P. By default, the resolution is set to 540P at 30fps, but there is also a ‘high’ option 60fps.

The available settings depend on the speed of the connection says Sony. While many PlayStation 4 games running in 1080p resolution, it is not possible to stream them in that format to a computer using Remote Play. It is not known why this limitation is imposed, but probably costs stream computing, which is the highest resolution available.

When using Remote Play will be sent the images of a PlayStation 4 to a computer or laptop, so the television or monitor where the console is connected to be used elsewhere. The Remote Play software supports a DualShock 4 controller, which must be connected to the USB port of the affected computer.

The Remote Play software which is installed on the computer will be available once the system update was released, and then through Sony download . The client works with Windows 8.1 and 10 or OS X version 10.10 and 10:11.

Remote Play was possible PlayStation 4 PlayStation TV, Vita and some Xperia smartphones. However, Sony has stopped selling the PS TV cabinet. In early March announced Sony that the feature would come to computers from 3:50 system. PS4 owners can update their console Wednesday to the new software.
