After a few months of testing, PlayStation 5 owners can streaming PS5 games to their consoles this month. That is, if you are subscribed to the PlayStation Plus Premium membership tier.

Sony mentions that select PS5 games will be available for streaming and will be adding more as time goes on. Subscribers will have access to:

  • Top PS5 hits from the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog
  • Game Trials
  • Additional PS5 digital titles that members own.

The games that are a part of the program will have options to either play via the cloud or download them to your console. These are features that Xbox users have had access to with Game Pass Ultimate since cloud gaming was released there.

PS5 cloud streaming will also allow you to access any DLC that you bought with the game, change resolution from 720p to 4K along with enabling HDR, the enhanced audio gamers know and love from the PS5, and photo and video capture.
