If this is true then Sony is on its way to bring up Cloud Streaming support to the PlayStation store. PS5 will be the first next-gen console to have this feature. Leading gaming stores like Steam, Epic Store, Xbox Game Store, etc did not have such benefits. Microsoft, Google, and a few leading game hardware manufacturers are touting their gaming streaming services from some time. Due to lack of high-speed bandwidth distribution, system hardware Gaming Streaming services are not as popular as they were thought of.
In the coming years we will be seeing more after new consoles make their way to end-user. Integration of a Game Streaming service directly into a console will revolutionize the way we buy games.
