According to a new report by Tom Henderson on Insider-Gaming, it seems that one of the new landmark updates set for release in March will bring about the highly anticipated Discord-PlayStation integration that has been constantly teased since last year, but there will also be another major feature that is going to be a pleasant and not so pleasant surprise to fans – the ability to stream PS5 games.
Save up on storage space and stream PS5 Games with the cloud
Similar to Microsoft’s xCloud offering, Tom Henderson has reported that the upcoming 7.00 update will tout a magnificent new feature that will change the way you can game on the console. The ability to play PS5 games on the cloud on your PS5, allows you to quickly jump into the game without installing it. However, similar to xCloud, this is said to be a paywalled feature that will be exclusive to the PlayStation Plus Premium tier.
Tom has also teased that the beta testing for both features will begin in January and go on until the end of the month, after which we will have to wait till the official firmware update releases to experience the full extent of the features highlighted in Tom’s report.
While being able to jump into PS5 titles without installing sounds like a dream come true, it will be curious to see whether the integration will be exclusive to first-party titles, or will it allow for other-party titles as well just like xCloud? For now all we can do is wait and see what the future holds for PlayStation.
While further details are still scarce, we would like to know your take on the upcoming feature. Are you excited to see it in action? And is this going to encourage you to jump on the PlayStation Plus Premium bandwagon? Let us know in the comments section below!
