Sony has announced that PlayStation is launching PlayStation 5 cloud streaming access starting this month. This includes supported PlayStation 5 digital titles from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog, Game Trials, as well as titles in the PlayStation 5 game library owned by PlayStation Plus Premium members. This cloud streaming feature for PlayStation 5 will be available to PlayStation Plus Premium members, and Sony plans to offer hundreds of supported titles.
Titles from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog available for streaming will include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West. Other games like Ghost of Tsushima, Mortal Kombat 11, and Saints Row IV will also be available. Game Trials will also be accessible for certain PlayStation 5 games, including Hogwarts Legacy, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and The Callisto Protocol. Additional titles that Sony announced will be available for streaming are Resident Evil 4, Dead Island 2, Genshin Impact, Fall Guys, and Fortnite.
This perk enables PlayStation Plus Premium members to stream PlayStation 5 games without the need for downloads. At launch, this feature will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5 console.
The launch date will vary by region. Sony is targeting October 17 for Japan, October 23 for Europe, and October 30 for North America. Cloud streaming through PlayStation Plus Premium is currently available in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Cyprus, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States.
After Sony announced a price increase for PlayStation Plus memberships in late August, members have been anticipating new perks. Whether this justifies the price increase largely depends on whether you benefit from cloud streaming.
