Sony Is Beta Testing The Ability To Cloud Stream PS5 Titles In 4K


Sony has begun allowing some users to beta test the option to cloud-stream certain PS5 titles on their PS5 consoles.

Invites have been emailed to select PlayStation users, who are both PlayStation Plus Premium Members and enrolled in the PlayStation Beta Program, offering them a voucher code to redeem in order to unlock the new cloud gaming feature.

In what is a welcome and unexpected update, users have also been reporting being able to stream PS5 titles in up to 2160p – 4K resolution.

The reported PS5 games included in the test are:

  • God of War: Ragnarok
  • Returnal
  • Destiny 2
  • Fortnite
  • Horizon: Forbidden West
  • Fall Guys
  • Death Stranding
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure
  • Destruction All Stars
  • Demon Souls

It is certainly a welcome surprise that Sony has rolled out the option to stream these titles in 4K, although it should not come as a surprise that the PS5 cloud streaming feature has now moved a huge step closer as Sony has been very vocal about their aggressive cloud gaming plans in recent months.

In an update that went live in June 2023, Sony stated they had indeed begun testing the ability to cloud-stream certain PS5 titles that spanned across the PS Plus catalog, game trials and even titles that players own. What we are seeing now certainly seems to be an extension of that test.

Being able to stream PS5 titles in 4K is certainly a welcome move from Sony. Let us hope that they can also couple this with some form of dedicated streaming app for mobile devices and perhaps also a link with their upcoming Project Q handheld device which is set to launch later this year.
