After rolling out its new PlayStation Plus system over the last year or so, it looks like PS5 cloud gaming is on the way in a major way. While Sony has always seemed as though it was playing catch-up with Xbox Live/Game Pass, and in many ways it has, its PlayStation Plus initiative is making a valiant attempt at bridging the gap for its player base.
According to a blog post by Sony, cloud streaming will be available to PlayStation 5 owners with a PlayStation Plus Premium subscription. The company has started rolling out cloud streaming of select games made for the PS3 and the PS4 with plans to bring more upcoming PS5 titles.
PlayStation 5 owners can stream their favorite games to other devices like iOS, Android, PC, and Mac, but users must download the entire game on their console. Sony added that cloud gaming is still in the early stages of development and is yet to share any timeline on when the new feature will be available.
Sonys cloud gaming technology reminds you of a strange partnership announced back in 2019. Microsoft has a cloud connection between Azure technology and the Center, but ni says any other way about using these technologies yet.
Sony announced that a portable gaming device is available on Xbox 360 and is compatible with streaming motion pictures and video streaming applications. Sony said it is bringing portable gaming devices with lossless audio.
