PS5 reportedly locks key feature behind PS Plus

PS5 is reportedly getting a major feature, but this feature will be locked not only behind PlayStation Plus, but also behind the most expensive tier of the PS4 and PS5 subscription service. In other words, if you’re a PS Plus Essential subscriber or even a PS Plus Extra subscriber, you’re out of luck, because according to this new report, this new feature is only for PS Plus Premium, meaning only a fraction of the subscribers will enjoy it.

The report is coming Insider gaming, who reports that PS5 games will soon be streaming on PS5 via cloud streaming, but only via PS Plus Premium. The feature is reportedly in the works under the project name “Cronus” and has been in the works for months. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that it’s coming to PS5 on March 8, 2023.

For those who don’t know, PS Plus is divided into three levels. The basic and standard tier, which is what PS Plus was before it expanded earlier this year, is called PS Plus Essential and gives subscribers a handful of “free” games each month in addition to the ability to play multiplayer games, use cloud saves and other stuff . The mid-tier subscription service is PS Plus Extra, which is PS Plus Essential, as well as unlimited access to an extensive and evolving library of PS4 and PS5 games. And then there’s PS Plus Premium, which is PS Plus Extra, but the library of PS4 and PS5 games is bolstered with PS3, PS2, PS1 and PSP games. And apparently now this and the ability to stream PS5 games.

That said, take everything here with a grain of salt. While the source in question is sterling, that doesn’t change the fact that everything here should be taken with a grain of salt. In the meantime, for more coverage on all things PlayStation, click here or check out the links below:
