Have you ever been in a situation in which you needed to use your PlayStation 4 on your laptop on computer’s screen? Maybe you had the urge to do it out of interest? Or perhaps there’s no enough TVs in your house? Well, if you ever find yourself in that type of situation again you will finally have the option of playing your PS4 games through your computer thanks to an unofficial version of Sony’s Remote Play by hackers at tmacdev.com.
The unofficial Remote Play, named Remote Play PC, works by tricking your PS4 to think that your computer is another Sony device and streaming your PS4 game to it. To cover the cost of development, the developer will sell this software for $10.
Although this seems very cool, it has a few issues that would bother some users. One of the issue is that this project has high possibility of getting shut down by Sony either by sending a cease and desist letter to the creators of the software, or by adding security features to Remote Play in future updates. The program also cannot in full screen in your PC. If you’re interested in installing, users have put up a nice guide at their forums.
