This development means that PlayStation Plus Premium members will be able to stream PS5 games without the need to download them onto a console.

Nick Maguire, VP of global services, global sales, and business operations at Sony Interactive Entertainment, confirmed the testing of cloud streaming for supported PS5 games.

The feature will encompass PS5 titles from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog and Game Trials, as well as supported digital PS5 titles owned by players. Cloud game streaming for these supported PS5 titles will be accessible directly on the PS5 console upon the feature's official launch.

We think it’s important for Premium members to be able to enjoy as many games as possible via cloud streaming,” says Maguire. “We’re in the early stages right now, and we can’t wait to share more details when we’re ready, including a launch time frame.

The introduction of cloud streaming for PS5 games eliminates the requirement to download games onto a console in order to stream them to other devices. Currently, Sony supports streaming of PS5 games to PCs, Macs, and iOS and Android devices, but users must use their PS5 as the host to download and stream titles to other devices.

Sony's confirmation of PS5 cloud streaming comes after a partnership with Microsoft was announced over four years ago, aiming to develop cloud solutions for game and content-streaming services.
