BRIDGING THE GAP
PS4 Firmware Update 3.50 to Introduce Remote Play to the PC and Mac
Ask and you shall receive. Sony is finally adding PC and Mac support to the PlayStation 4’s Remote Play feature, allowing gamers to indulge in their favorite PS4 titles through their desktop or notebook PC.
This highly sought-after feature comes as part of the PlayStation 4’s 3.50 firmware update, which should be pushed to all PlayStation 4 owners later this year. If you’ve pre-registered yourself to be part of the PS4 System Software 3.5 beta trial, you should have already received an email containing the instructions on how to download the update.
Of course, the 3.50 update also brings about plenty of other interesting features, such as the ability to appear offline,
APRIL 2016 and the option to be notified when your friend comes online. You’ll also be able to schedule future gaming sessions together with your friends as well. Don’t worry, you and your friends will automatically be added into a party when the planned session begins, so you won’t have to painstakingly round them up one by one yourself.
Also included with the update is the ability to see what your friends are playing, making it easy for you to gatecrash their games, or coax them into joining a lobby that you’ve hosted. If your friends are the kind of people who believe that engaging in friendly fire is more gratifying than actually winning, you can now livestream their looney antics directly to Dailymotion on PS4.
