The DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adapter was also officially revealed and will launch on 15th September, which also functions with the PS4 Remote Play, allowing you to stream PS4 games to your PC or Mac.

Original Story - 23/08/2016 - If you’ve followed the world of console gaming news for long, you know that Sony has a rough time keeping a lid on leaks prior to reveals of big news. The company is holding a media event in New York City where it’s expected that they’ll announce full details on the new PlayStation Neo console, but it seems there may also be some news of interest to PC gamers.
First, a listing onsuggests that a DualShock 4 wireless adaptor is coming for PC. Prior to this, the only way to get a PS4 controller working on PC was with a wired connection, and even that required a certain amount of finagling to get working properly. Official drivers and a wireless adapter could make Sony’s gamepad a viable alternative to Xbox controllers on PC.
But why would Sony be bringing their controllers to PC now? It seems that PlayStation Now, a streaming service offering access to a big catalog of games, might be hitting PC as well.
PlayStation Now currently offers a library of over 400 PS3 titles for streaming on Sony consoles, ranging from the full Assassin’s Creed and Uncharted series all the way down to tiny indie titles like Proteus. The service is a bit expensive at $19.99 monthly or $44.99 quarterly, but could still prove a terrific way for PC players to access some excellent console titles.
