I'd rather just play on my PS4? Why bother streaming? If someone could help me understand that I'd appreciate it. Currently I don't see the point

im drawing a blank too, if you have a pc why not just buy the games on pc as there cheaper on pc for the bulk of them and play them on pc without the latency.

A couple of scenarios - my PS3 is in the living room so if I'm playing a game and the missus wants to watch something... well I lose that argument every time so I could go play on my PC.

Secondly - PS exclusive titles. I bought Forza Horizons on Xbox and play on my PC as that's where the steering wheel etc is set up. Also - I don't own an Xbone yet.

It also should allow you to play against a larger player base.

Would it be easier and more convenient to play on your PS4? Definitely.

Im wondering why your saying it lets you play on a bigger playerbase, streaming to the pc wouldnt allow you to connect to pc multiplayer, you would still be on the ps network would you not.

Jesus Christ, really? Not everybody has a PS4. Some PC gamers would like to play some PS4 exclusives.

You can lay off and cool off the unnecessary sarcasm
Maybe wasn't aware you could just use this service alone and maybe just maybe thought you would need a Ps3 or PS4 for it to work.

Tbh a total guess. If its fully integrated then ps/xbox/pc players should all be able to play in the same instance and have combined leaderboards etc. Depending on the game of course.

Would save me having two copies of GTA V.

Dunno, if its streaming its still classed as a ps4 and its a ps4 version of the game. As of yet i cant think of any game that has cross platform multiplayer

I play Horizons 3 on PC which supports it (Xbox live app) and I believe Rocket League is cross platform as well although I don't own that one.
