Surprised? Well, you can now play PlayStation 4-exclusive gaming titles like The Last Of Us: Remastered and Uncharted 4 on your PC or Mac. Sony has announced on its official PlayStation Blog that its game streaming service now includes PlayStation 4 games. The company had announced a few weeks ago that it is axing its game subscription service for every platform except PS4 and PC/Mac.

PlayStation Now is a paid game subscription service that people can opt for, and enjoy PlayStation gaming titles on their PlayStation 4 and PC/Mac device. After you pay for the service monthly, you can play any game that’s included in the PlayStation Now library. Basically, think of it as a Spotify service for games. This move comes after Microsoft unveiled its $10 game subscription service Xbox Game Pass earlier this month at GDC 2017.

Unlike PlayStation Now, Microsoft’s game subscription service lets you download and install games on your hard disk drive. PlayStation Now is based on cloud gaming technology where game is streamed from Sony’s servers to a device, and needs fast internet speeds. For just $10 per month, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass offers 100 Xbox 360 and Xbox One games, and seems like a better choice for those who need such a service.

Sony axed its PlayStation Now service for PS3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, Samsung’s smart TVs, and Sony’s own Blu-ray player last month.
