No, it still does not work to put a PS4 Blu-ray on your computer, but the latest update of the Sony game console software allows you to bring PS4 games to your computer over the Internet . In this way, it is not necessary to move the game console from the living room, where it is usually connected, to play directly on your laptop or desktop computer in your room . Here we tell you all the steps you have to take.
The first thing is to make sure you have everything you need. The first is an updated PlayStation 4 and connected to the Internet. It is enough to see the news to receive the alert of version 3.50 of the software of this console available to be downloaded and installed. This update is what allows you to stream or bring PS4 games to your computer over the Internet . It is also necessary to have one DualShock 4 Control and power cable to charge your battery , which will help us to connect to the computer through port USB . Finally, we have to make sure that we have an Internet connection ofhigh speed for both the game console and the computer (which can be Windows or Mac) , achieving better results when the number of MB download and upload speeds is higher.
Well, with all the material ready, the first thing to do is make sure that the PS4 has the Remote Play option activated in the Connection Settings menu . A point that must also be made sure in the energy saving options.
After that, you have to start the PS4 in sleep mode .
Now we move on to the computer . Here it is necessary to download the PS4 Remote Play program through the PlayStation website . It is the tool that will allow us to link our PS4 with the computer, as well as allow the use of the DualShock 4 controller in it. This service is available for Windows and Mac computers .
We connect the game console control to the computer through any USB port .
We run or open the PS4 Remote Play program and click on the Start button .
We sign with our Sony Network Entertainment user data .
And we can use the game console and play your titles installed from another room, with the controller itself and all its functions.
Now, there are certain considerations to take into account. The first of these is that this use of remote gaming from the computer forces the image quality to be reduced to 720 pixels or HD quality . Something that the most purists will not like, but that is the price that must be paid to avoid delays during the game or stoppages. Also, if our internet connection is slow, this quality may be further reduced .
It should also be noted that remote use of PS4 cannot be enjoyed on computers with X64 architecture operating systems . This information can be found by right-clicking on the Equipment icon and then selecting Properties .
Finally, in favor of this new PlayStation 4 service , it must be said that it is not necessary for the computer and the PS4 to be connected to the same Internet network , as it could be the same connection at home. Thus, it would be possible to play the game console, turned on from home, on the work computer, for example.
