Sony Might Bring Cloud Gaming to Streaming Services and Devices, Patent Suggests

A newly-discovered patent suggests that Sony is toying with the idea of bringing PlayStation cloud gaming to streaming services and devices. This doesn’t come as a surprise considering the advancement in cloud gaming as well as a previous Netflix app datamine that suggested DualSense integration of some sort.

PlayStation cloud gaming partnership with Netflix has been rumored for a while

Back in 2021 when reports of Netflix delving into gaming first emerged, internet sleuths datamined the streaming giant’s app and found images of Ghost of Tsushima and the PS5 DualSense controller. Nothing came out of it at the time, but the aforementioned patent discovered by VeryAli Gaming suggests that Sony hasn’t given up on the idea.

Published on December 29, 2022, the patent reads:

Methods and systems are provided for processing video games streamed from a cloud gaming system over a network. The method includes receiving an indication of selection of the video game, for a gaming session, through a user interface associated with a streaming device that is connected to a display screen via a pass-through device. The method includes receiving a signal that the gaming session is active, from a game streaming logic of the pass-through device.

Looks like we might eventually be able to play PlayStation games via services like Netflix or devices like Fire TV Stick.
