One of the greatest selling points of the PlayStation Vita is its ability to stream PS4 games, allowing you to continue your progress on the go so long as you’re connected to the Internet. It’s a feature that has steadily began to proliferate onto Sony’s TVs and Xperia mobiles, but what about its appearance on PC?

Alas, Remote Play is likely to remain native to Sony’s platforms for the foreseeable future, but that hasn’t stopped developers experimenting with different workarounds to bring the sought-after feature to PC. One of the early frontrunners has been independent developer Twisted, who has documented his progress via YouTube and his own blog

Fast approaching a final build, Twisted now plans to release the initial version of the software on Wednesday, November 25 for a price that is still to be decided. Per his most recent update: “I’m still reviewing final pricing but I’m looking to release with a starting point of £6.50/$10.”

Mind you, the fact that Sony doesn’t support a PC client for its games may lead to Twisted encountering some form of branding problem come release. We’ll keep you updated as this story develops.
