Sony says that aside from games you already own, the only other titles available for streaming include “PS5 digital titles within the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog and Game Trials.” Sony is selling its latest service on top of marquee names like “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales,” “Horizon Forbidden West,” “Ghost of Tsushima,” “Mortal Kombat 11,” and “Saints Row IV” which will be ready for cloud-based game streaming on your PlayStation 5. The list of compatible games will also add familiar oldies like “Resident Evil 4,” “Dead Island 2,” “Genshin Impact,” “Fall Guys,” and “Fortnite.”
Aside from the flexibility offered by server-side streaming, PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers can make in-game purchases and download additional content down the road, just like regular games. Streaming-ready titles will also bundle support for 5.1 and 7.1 channel audio for a wider, more immersive hearing landscape.
Screen capture and clip sharing on Discord will also be a part of the parcel. But do keep in mind that all titles won’t be universally available for streaming in all regions, irrespective of whether you are a subscriber or not.

Interestingly, Sony won’t say how the PlayStation Portal handheld will fit into the PlayStation 5 game streaming equation.
