The Next Big Thing™ in gaming isn't really virtual reality or even augmented reality - it's crossplay.

Since E3, Microsoft have been banging the drum for crossplay pretty heavily and have even said they've reached out to Sony to have games available on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 within the current lifecycle. While Sony have appeared to rebuff that particular offer, it now appears that they're taking on PC gaming in another way.

In the next couple of months, Sony will allow players to access the PlayStation Now service on PC. This'll mean that players will be able to play PlayStation exclusives like The Last Of Us, the Uncharted series and Rachet & Clank on a PC. Moreover, the PlayStation DualShock controller will work with a USB port on a PC and, as well as this, you'll also be able to pick a Bluetooth / USB adapter for your controller as well.

Mac users, of course, are left out in the cold as it appears that PlayStation Now will be PC-only for the moment. However, the PlayStation's Remote Play service does still work on Mac. If you're planning on using the PlayStation Now service for your PC, here's the specs you'll need:

Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10

3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster

300 MB or more; 2 GB or more of RAM

Sound card; USB port

There's a huge list of games available on the PSNow service which you can check out here.
