Last November we learned that Sony was planning on letting its gamers play PlayStation 4 games on the Mac. We were hoping it would be similar to the way Microsoft lets Xbox One players have at it. Well the wait is over! PlayStation 4 System update 3.50 will give owners Remote Play for Mac. You will need a DualShock 4 controller and obviously a PlayStation 4 to remotely games on the Mac or PC. Below is the official rundown.

With this update, we’re expanding PS4’s Remote Play capabilities to work with Windows PC and Mac. Remote Play on PC / Mac is compatible with the following system software:

  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 10 or later
  • OS X 10.10
  • OS X 10.11

You’ll be able to select from the following resolution and frame rate options, depending on your Internet bandwidth.

  • Resolution options: 360p, 540p, 720p (Default: 540p)
  • Frame rate : Standard (30fps), High (60fps) (Default: Standard)

You can use one DualShock 4 as the controller for Remote Play, which needs to be connected to your PC / Mac via a USB cable.

After the system software update launches, you’ll be able to download the Remote Play Installer here.
