Sony to Launch Cloud-Streamed PS5 Games for PlayStation Plus Premium Subscribers in October

Sony is set to launch cloud-streamed PS5 games for the PS5 in Japan, Europe, and North America in late October. This feature will be available to subscribers of PlayStation Plus Premium, the highest-tier subscription option within Sony's PlayStation Plus offerings. Here are the target release dates for each region:

  • Japan: October 17th
  • Europe: October 23rd
  • North America: October 30th

Initially, players will be able to stream "select" PS5 games, with plans to expand the library to include "hundreds" of PS5 games over time. The cloud streaming-compatible games will encompass titles from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog, digital games owned by players, and game trials for titles such as Hogwarts Legacy and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. However, Sony hasn't specified which games will be available at the initial launch.

Key points about this announcement:

  • Preferred Streaming Resolution: Players will have the option to select their preferred streaming resolution, with choices including 4K, 1440p, 1080p, and 720p.
  • Limited to PS5 at Launch: The feature will initially work only on PS5 consoles, suggesting the potential for streaming to other devices in the future.

Sony has been preparing for this cloud gaming expansion, having conducted official tests for cloud-streamed PS5 games earlier in the year. This move aligns with the growing trend of cloud gaming, allowing players to enjoy high-quality gaming experiences without the need for powerful local hardware. The success of this venture will likely depend on the quality of the streaming experience and the availability of popular PS5 titles.
