Will Netflix collaborate with Sony to bring many PlayStation games to the platform

Netflix will let you play games on the cloud without having to own powerful hardware to do so. It’s anticipated that it will offer a video game streaming service within the next year. Naturally, there is a lot of tension on the team’s head, as the completion in the streaming community is quite high.

Recently, Steve Moser, Editor-In-Chief of The Tape Drive, shared four images teasing the possibility of Netlfix’s collaboration with Sony. In those pictures, there was a logo that has the Shark logo on it. Moreover, there were images of two PS5 DualSense controllers, a Netflix logo, and the Ghost of Tsushima cover.

The picture of two PS5 controllers is suggesting a Sony and Netflix partnership. Although the possibility of the Ghost series releasing on Netflix is very low, a poster of Jin Sakai could be used as a sign of partnership.

Indeed, everyone is excited to play PlayStation games on Netflix; however, the collab might backfire on PlayStation’s already established storefronts. Furthermore, there’s already some confusion about what PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now offer that are different from each other.

Netflix has to build a huge starter fanbase and a partnership with Sony might be a splendid strategy. The best possibility for both companies would be to release some of the old PlayStation classics. This will give an advantage to both sides as Netflix might be able to attract a lot of audiences, whereas Sony can gain huge profits. All these are just rumors building up in the community, so obviously take it with a pinch of salt.
