Sony is reportedly testing the support for cloud gaming or select PlayStation 5 games for its PS Premium subscribers, as noted by an executive in today’s announcement.
This will let eligible users play games on their PS5 console without downloading them first, making it much easier to try and switch games on the go. Sony said it’d support all the digital PS5 titles, game trials and some from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog – all coming at no extra cost for the PlayStation Premium subscribers.
Cloud Gaming on PlayStation 5
PlayStation is one of the most significant assets of Sony, catering for the company billions of dollars in revenue every year. Thus, the Japanese giant needs to keep its fans loyal by introducing new perks regularly. In this pursuit, Sony is testing an essential feature for its PlayStation consoles that will add to the current PS Premium subscribers.
As noted in the PlayStation Blog post, Nixk Maguire, VP of Global Services, Global Sales, and Business Ops at SIE, said the company is testing cloud gaming support for select PS5 titles! This will be an “additional benefit” to the PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers.
“We’re currently testing cloud streaming for supported PS5 games – this includes PS5 titles from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog and Game Trials, as well as supported digital PS5 titles that players own”
This lets eligible players try the games on their supported consoles without downloading them, making it easy. Sony already has a handheld device called “Project Q” with a similar purpose, but it isn’t a hit already. The handheld will let you stream PS5 games from your console over a Wi-Fi connection.
