One thing that Mac critics crib about over and over again is the lack of gaming support on the platform. While Apple doesn’t seem to be doing much to answer the critics, the big daddy of gaming – Sony – has made an unexpected announcement of bringing its PlayStation 4 games to Macbooks.Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony’s worldwide studios, recently confirmed via a tweet that the company is working on an app to allow streaming of PS4 games to both Macs and PCs.
Although the release date for the computer apps hasn’t been announced yet, Apple and Playstation fans like us have already begun their celebrations.
This app is an extension of the feature called “Remote Play”, which allows players to stream gameplay content from PS4 console to an external device. So far the support for Remote Play was limited only to a handful of Sony smartphones, but Sony is set to widen the horizons.
This development can be seen as a response to Microsoft’s opening up streaming of its XBox One games on Windows 10 OS. The feature was well received by the gaming community, and Sony is counting on a similar response.
We have always been bewildered by how the entire gaming community has simply overlooked Mac users. It doesn’t make us feel very loved at all. We are hopeful that Sony will change the trend once and for all and send some gaming excitement our way too!
