Finally, you can add 2-Step Verification to your PlayStation account

Sony will be bringing its game streaming service PlayStation Now to the PC from today, along with a USB adaptor allowing gamers to use a standard PS4 controller on their computers. And if that wasn't enough to ice the cake, the gaming giant is also releasing a wireless adapter for DualShock 4 controllers for PC and Mac.

PlayStation Now's PC edition will roll out "soon" in Europe, with a North American release expected "shortly thereafter". To run PS Now, user's PC should feature Windows 7 (SP1) or higher OS versions; 3.5GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8GHz AMD A10 or faster processor; 2GB RAM or more; and a sound card. The service that lets players access PS3 games is now only available for PS4 and some Sony TV sets. It obviously led a lot of developers to develop some of the best games including the Uncharted series, The Last of Us, God of War series and many more exclusives. Alternatively, you can connect the controller to your PC using a USB cable and not spend on the wireless adapter.

Are you as excited as we are to play PS games on the PC?

Sony's move to offer games cross-platform comes after Microsoft announced a similar platform, Xbox Play Anywhere, during their E3 press conference earlier in the year. The app is currently only available on various Sony's consoles along with select Sony and Samsung Smart TVs, but with the service now coming to PC, it's just one more way to enjoy Sony's library of games nearly anywhere. As spotted by Ars Technica, the USA price will increase in September, rising from $50 to $60 (or $60 to $70 for our Canadian friends).

Sony has announced that it is finally enabling two-step verification on PlayStation Network accounts, more than half a decade after the first cracks in its security were discovered. Since the gaming service was introduced in 2010, this would be the first price hike in the region.

There is no word on the European PS Plus subscription, however they had their own price increase a year ago.
