PS5 games streaming, launching October 23

From October 23, PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers will be able to stream PS5 games directly to their console, without downloading them.

Last summer, Sony announced that it was conducting tests on a new PlayStation 5 function: the possibility of playing PS5 games via Cloud, without downloading them first, on the console of course but also compatible devices such as PC, Mac, iPhone and Android devices.
