With the introduction of Windows 10, Microsoft added the ability to stream Xbox One content straight to a Windows 10 device. It appears now that Sony has caught up to this game, as the company has now updated their Remote Play capabilities for a similar service for their PlayStation 4 gaming system.

The updated remote play capabilities are part of the 3.50 firmware update for the PlayStation 4 system. Codenamed MUSASHI, the feature has been in beta test for a while, and now finally launches on PC and Macs. After the system update launches, PlayStation gamers can use Remote Play by installing the Remote Play program.

The Remote Play program is compatible with Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and OSX versions 10.10 and 10.11. It offers up 30fps and 60fps framerates, as well as support for the  360p, 540p, and 740p resolutions.  To use the service, however, a DualShock 4 controller needs to be connected to your PC or Mac via  USB Cable.
