Sony has launched cloud game streaming on PlayStation 5 in Japan and at the same time answered some questions and shared technical requirements.

Subscribers with the PS Plus Premium plan will be able to stream any games from their library, but only on PlayStation 5 for now. It will also be impossible to stream games from physical disks and on PS VR2.

The most interesting details are the required Internet connection speed for games:

  • 2160p (4K) – 52 Mbps
  • 1440p – 38 Mbps
  • 1080p (Full HD) – 23 Mbps
  • 720p (HD) – 13 Mbps

It’s worth noting that this is the recommended speed, the minimum speed for 720p is 5 Mbps, and 4K is 38 Mbps.

The feature became available in Japan on October 17, in Europe it will be launched on October 23, and in North America on October 30. Unfortunately, game streaming is not yet available in Ukraine.
