Sony dropped the PlayStation 4 3.50 system software update today, which brought a handful of new features (including the ability to appear offline, which anti-social hermits like myself will use excessively), but the big thing is the arrival of Remote Play, which allows you to play PS4 games on your PC and your Mac.

Of course, you need to meet some requirements. PCs must be running either Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, and Macs must be running either OS X 10.10 or 10.11. You need a quality router that’s capable of at least 12Mbps upload and download speeds (Sony’s recommendation). Then, of course, you’ll need a PS4 controller and a USB cable. Thankfully, the setup is simple, and the PS4 Remote Play page will walk you through it.

While Microsoft’s Xbox One might have beat the PlayStation 4 to the punch with remote play, Microsoft requires Windows users to use Windows 10, and they don’t support Macs at all, so Sony has definitely one-upped them in that department.
