Streaming through the cloud already included PS3, PS4 and classic titles for premium members, but the addition of PS5 games brings things full circle. With this opening by Sony, Enthusiasts no longer need to download games to the console to stream them to other devices. Sony currently supports streaming PS5 games to PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices. However, you must use the PS5 as a host to download and stream games to your other systems.
We mustn’t forget the recent announcement of Project Q, a “portable” console that – as far as has been stated so far – only allows PS5 games to be streamed over WiFi directly from the home console. The Japanese house hasn’t clarified whether the new device will support streaming PS5 games via the cloud, but according to some, this breakthrough could indicate it. Project Q is expected to be released in the fall (November?), so Sony may release more information in the future.
