Everyone freak out. You can play PS3 games on your computer without hacks



PC gamers, console gamers, relax. Your war for supremacy is nearing its end.

Sony's PlayStation Now software now lets you stream PlayStation 3 games to your laptop for $20 a month. You don't need the console. You don't even need to buy the game.

All you need, according to Sony, is an Internet connection and a PlayStation 4 controller.

The Now service has been around for years, but Tuesday marks the first time it was announced for non-Sony devices. And that's huge. 

How soon is now?

PlayStation Now's PC compatibility is not available worldwide just yet. CNET reports the U.K. will get first dibs "soon," with the United States up next. It's not clear what "soon" means.

Sony also recommends a 3.5 GHz processor and a 5 Mbps internet connection, at a minimum.

It's been a busy year for Sony, with rumors two different PS4 models are on the way.
