Off the back of its recent partnership with Microsoft that will see the two companies come together on future cloud streaming solutions, Sony has revealed in an investor relation meeting that streaming a PS5 game will be just as important as its physical disc and digital download counterparts.

It's something everyone has assumed due to the way the industry is going, but this announcement sets the streaming method in stone for PlayStation 5. This type of content delivery is set to become the norm alongside purchasing a physical copy at a store or downloading it from the PlayStation Store, meaning that a streamable option may be available for most, if not all, games from launch.


This is a fairly major shift in role for PlayStation Now, which adds games to its library monthly well after those titles have hit the market. On the PS5, it looks like you'll be able to stream a game the moment it's available. Would you like to embrace the streaming future and play a PS5 title as soon as it becomes available, without any prior download? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
