Sony would bring PS4 remote play to the PC and Mac in the near future, it has been announced. It is an interesting move by Sony considering how there are already game controllers for the PC.

According to Gematsu the news is confirmed by a tweet from Shuhei Yoshida, the head of Sony Computer Entertainment. Yoshida said that the company is working to bring PS4 remote play to the PC and Macafter numerous requests have been made from some very curious fans.

The Xbox One controller has had remote play for PC since its debut, though it doesn’t support Mac yet. Whether this is the reason Sony decided to bring PS4 remote play to the PC and Mac or not hasn’t been confirmed.

One other reason why Sony finally decided to make this move is because of an unofficial app that was recently announced by an independent developer. According to Engadget the app is pegged at US$9.99 (AU$14 approx) but there has been no news about its release date.

Some might find it weird that console developers are trying very hard to please PC gaming fans-- a number of who have jokingly called themselves the “PC Master Race.” While PC games do have certain exclusive titles like the upcoming “XCOM 2” and a number of online games, both the PS4 and Xbox One have had their fair share of exclusive quality titles.

It was announced recently that “Helldivers” would be coming to PC via Steam and is the first PC game to be developed by a PlayStation development team. Whether this is a sign of things to come can’t be said, but fans can play “Helldivers” on PC with a PS4 controller soon, though they could also play the game on Sony’s console.

With the holidays season setting in soon, fans have a huge choice of games to buy, be it on consoles or PC. Soon they will be able to play them with PS4 or Xbox One controllers.
