A recent patent by Sony suggests that the console manufacturer may be planning to add PS5 game streaming to its cloud subscription service, PlayStation Now. As spotted by DualShockers, the patent suggests the use of multiple high-speed NVMe drives to help stream PS5 games remotely.

The patent also, of course, goes in-depth about how those NVMe drives will be functioning in tandem with each other to enable streaming of current-gen games. Given how hard getting a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S has been, it’s great that more fans will be able to enjoy games like Returnal or Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, if this does indeed come to fruition. That said, while the patent most definitely hints that PS5 games will be coming to the service, it’s best that fans remain only cautiously optimistic for now.

This comes shortly after Microsoft replaced its cloud server blades with Xbox Series X/S hardware, and has allowed xCloud and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to stream current-gen games on a multitude of devices.
