PlayStation ramps up PS5 cloud gaming this month

Accompanying today’s PlayStation Plus Extra/Premium October 2023 games announcement, is an extra surprise related to cloud gaming. Earlier this year, Sony has already revealed plans to increase their cloud gaming presence. Most of it was rumors, however today Sony has announced part of their new cloud gaming plans. PlayStation Plus Premium members will be able to take advantage of PS5 cloud gaming.

Without having to download a game, players can access PS5 cloud gaming with their PlayStation Plus Premium membership. Additionally, PlayStation Plus Premium members will also see features available with the new PS5 streaming benefit, including:

●  Downloadable content and in-game purchases will be available for PS5 game streaming, including DLC and add-ons – similar to purchases from downloadable games.

●  High quality resolution options, including 4K, 1440p, 1080p, and 720p, with 60 FPS and SDR or HDR output.

●  Enhanced audio with support for all PS5 audio capabilities including 5.1 and 7.1 as well as Tempest 3D Audiotech.

●  Capture screenshots and record up to 3 minutes of video, which will be downloaded to your Media Gallery on PS5 and also available in the Media Gallery on PS App 

Play game trials and bought games

Perhaps the greatest feature that has been unveiled today, was the ability to stream your bought PS5. This applies to a limited selection at first. The selection of games will be announced at a later date.

Additionally, a great use case for cloud gaming is being able to stream Game Trials that come with PlayStation Plus Premium. Without having to download games, you can try out the first few hours while streaming right away.
