PS3 games come to Windows via PlayStation Now, DualShock 4 adapter

PlayStation 3 games are coming to Windows, according to Sony.

To enable full compatibility, Sony is also releasing a DualShock 4 USB wireless adapter that lets anyone play games on their PC with the controller without Bluetooth connectivity. The adapter will launch in early September for $35.

“This will bring a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles to Windows PC for the very first time, including entries in the Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank franchises, as well as beloved PS3 games like The Last of Us and Journey. Current subscribers have a new way to access PS Now’s library of over 400 games, and the PC app provides a new way for even more gamers to discover and play the service.”

-Eric Lempel, PSN senior vice president

The adapter will work with PS Now and the Remote Play feature that streams content from your PS4 to Windows/Mac.

“This adapter will enable every feature of the controller you know and love: buttons, analog sticks, touch pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack – as long as the gaming application supports these features.”

-Eric Lempel
