Sony plans to leverage the cloud to provide more benefits to its PlayStation Plus players and users. Through a statement, it confirmed that soon it will be possible to stream PS5 titles that are part of the service's catalog from the cloud.
Additionally, it will also allow players to stream some of the titles they have acquired and are part of their digital collection of PS5 games. This feature is still in the testing phase and can be used with only one requirement: having an active subscription to PlayStation Plus Premium.
Currently, PlayStation Plus offers the possibility to stream PS4, PS3, and PS2 games in most regions. Now, Sony is working to allow users to enjoy PlayStation 5 titles in the cloud.
Players will be able to stream certain titles available on PlayStation Plus, as well as compatible titles that are part of their digital collection. Additionally, the cloud will be usable in the game trials offered by the service.
This way, users will no longer have to wait for long periods while downloading and installing a specific game. They can now quickly and easily access compatible PS5 titles. All they need is a Premium subscription.
"Our goal is to add this as an additional benefit to PlayStation Plus Premium as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the value of PlayStation Plus. We believe it's important for Premium members to be able to enjoy as many games as possible through cloud streaming," Sony revealed.
For now, the feature is in the testing phase, and it is unclear when it will debut.
