PlayStation 5 Will Apparently Support Plex at Launch

Next-gen gaming is understandably the main selling point of the PlayStation 5, but that’s not all the new console will have to offer when it launches next month. Sony has confirmed that the PS5 will support multiple streaming apps at launch, and now one can add Plex to that list.

While the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video have been dominating the busy streaming market, Plex has managed to carve a niche for itself by offering more than just streaming. In addition to a wide selection of movies, TV shows, web shows, and live channels, the service doubles as a media hub, allowing users to organize their personal photos, music, and movies and access them from multiple devices.

Sony’s PS5 ‘Reveal’ Is Over – And Boy, Was It a Disaster

Sony’s PlayStation 5 “reveal” event was a sleep-inducing 50 minutes of utter boredom. It’s hard to imagine how it could have gone worse.

  • Today’s PS5 “reveal” event turned out to be a 50-minute lecture aimed at developers.
  • The sleep-inducing presentation appears to have been initially scheduled for GDC2020 before the event was canceled.
  • Not only did Mark Cerny drone on for 50 minutes about the same three things, but we still didn’t learn anything about the PS5’s “killer features.”

Well, that was disappointing. After months of waiting for the PlayStation 5 (PS5) reveal, Sony delivered one of the most boring and utterly pointless events imaginable.

Mark Cerny basically got up on stage and gave a talk aimed solely at game developers. That would have been fine at GDC, where he planned to present it. But Sony talked today’s event up as a gamer-focused PS5 unveiling.

So hundreds of thousands of people tuned in, expecting to finally get some information about the console. Instead, all we got was a bunch of pointless tech speak.
