This is exciting as it allows users of the service to have their library of cloud-hosted content available on the next-gen console from day one.

We are sure that ‘Plex-ers’ around the planet will be cheering at that reveal!

Whilst Sony have not yet confirmed the presence of the asp on the new console, we are sure they will soon add Plex to the PS5’s entertainment list.

Entertainment and Media Space

In an effort to bridge the gap between gaming and entertainment, Sony have introduced dedicated space for both.

The Media Space will be the home of all things entertainment.
