On October 23, cloud-game streaming for PlayStation 5 owners will be available in the UK, according to PlayStation.
Members of PlayStation Plus Premium will have access to this feature. At £13.49 per month or£ 119 per year, that is the highest level of PlayStation Plus membership.
You can use PlayStation Plus streaming to play games online from the Plus Game Catalogue, your own collection, and the service’s Game Trials.
The main advantage is that these games won’t need to be installed on the internal storage of your PlayStation 5. As a result, there will be less game juggling and less time spent waiting for the data to download, which is significant given that some games are over 100GB in size.
PlayStation 5 Cloud Streaming Eligible Games
The following games will be available for PlayStation 5 owners to stream starting on October 23:
- Dead Island 2
- Fall Guys
- Genshin Impact
- Ghost of Tsushima
- Hogwarts Legacy
- Horizon Forbidden West
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Resident Evil 4
- Saints Row IV

According to Nideaki Nishino, senior vice president of platform experience at Sony Interactive Entertainment, we intend to support this new benefit with hundreds of PS5 games.
How Game Streaming on PS5 Works
It’s important to note that PlayStation 5 game streaming doesn’t actually give players access to them. It’s just another way to play games that PlayStation Plus users already have access to, either directly from your own ownership of the games or through their Game Catalogue and Game Trials.
Because you can only stream games from the PlayStation 5 itself at launch, it is also much more constrained than Xbox Game Pass.
If you’d like, you can use Game Pass Ultimate to play Xbox games on your phone. Sony still has significant game streaming plans. On November 15, its PlayStation Portal streaming handheld will be available.
There aren’t any overt criticisms of PlayStation 5’s initial cloud streaming quality expectations either.
Requirements for PS5 Cloud Gaming
Where available, it can broadcast in HDR at up to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. The roll call also includes Tempest 3D Audiotech audio and surround sound.
According to Sony, a connection speed of at least 38 mbps is required to stream 4K, 15 Mbps content at 1080p. Additionally, a minimum speed of 5 mbps is required, though it probably wouldn’t be enjoyable to stream on that connection.
A week before the Americans, we have game streaming. On October 17, Sony will begin operations in Japan, followed by October 23, in the UK and Europe, and October 30, in North America.
Of course, this is not the first time that PlayStation Plus has used game streaming. Since the PlayStation 5 cannot play games from that generation natively, every time you play a PlayStation 3 game from the Game Catalogue, it is streamed over your home internet.
However, as a result of this development, PlayStation game streaming is now more comparable to that of Xbox.
