MacBook-Pro-PS4Sony has announced that its forthcoming Remote Play app for streaming PlayStation 4 games on Mac or Windows PC will be available "soon." PlayStation 4's latest 3.50 system software update launches in beta tomorrow, but Sony says the Remote Play functionality will not be available in the beta.

Last November, Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida tweeted that it is working on an official Remote Play app for Mac and PC, enabling users to stream and play PS4 games on desktops and notebooks. Physically owning a PS4 will still be required to stream games.

Remote Play is currently limited to various Sony devices, including the PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV and newer Xperia-branded smartphones and tablets. All new PS4 games must be compatible with Remote Play, except for games that use peripherals such as PlayStation Move.

What des this give you that simply playing on a PS4 doesn't? Can two player games have different screens so a racing game would give each their own POV an they would not be distracted by the other? A sports game could keep plays secret as well.

An honest question, as I don't have a PS4 but have played others and am curious what this brings beyond a "look at what we can do?" How does it make gaming better?

Oh. And they should add this feature to the Apple TV!
