One of the Xbox One’s best new features is the ability to hook up a controller to your Windows 10-based PC and stream your Xbox One’s screen to that PC. Use that controller to play games that look just as good as if you were sitting in front of your living room TV, an especially useful feature if you have roommates who tend to hog your primary TV.

Sadly, Sony’s PlayStation 4 doesn’t have a feature like this. However, a third-party developer plans to launch a workaround on Wednesday, which will make it a reality. Remote Play PC will be a native Windows application that lets you play PS4 games from a different room than your console.

“I’ve been working on this project mostly part time for over a year when the Android version was first released in October 2014. I’ve lost count the amount of hours I’ve put in over this time but I’ve enjoyed every moment working on this project which leads me onto my main point. I’d like to work on this project full time, adding features, getting it stable and porting it to other platforms which I know a lot of you want,” writes the app’s developer, Twisted.

“The only way to support this is to charge for the app, all my previous projects have been free and I don’t want to have to but sadly its [sic] the only way to support my living costs. On the plus side this means I have more time to work on the project and provide support to its users, something which I’ve been limited on in the past.”

It remains to be seen how long Remote Play PC will be live before Sony shuts it down or disables it (Sony doesn’t love tinkerers). Call us skeptical, but we can’t see Sony being too thrilled about the development—especially if the company is working on similar functionality, or wants to restrict its use to PlayStation Plus users as a way to entice gamers to sign up for the service.
