Sony has recently launched its very own movie streaming app for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. With the Sony Pictures Core app, users can conveniently purchase or rent movies directly through their consoles. However, there is an added benefit for subscribers of PlayStation Plus Premium and Deluxe (which is a version of Premium available in specific markets).
Subscribers will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of benefits, one of which is access to an extensive collection of Sony Pictures movies without any annoying ads. With up to 100 films available, members can indulge in popular titles like “Looper,” “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV,” “Elysium,” and “Resident Evil Damnation” at no additional charge. The library will continue to receive regular updates to keep the content fresh and exciting for users. In addition, the company has exciting plans to incorporate anime content from Crunchyroll into Sony Pictures Core. Furthermore, there are upcoming benefits expected for all PS Plus subscribers. Stay tuned for more information on these exciting additions and perks!
For quite some time, there have been suggestions from various observers that Sony should consider offering the ability for PS Plus subscribers to stream movies as part of their subscription. It’s great to see that this feature is now being implemented and subscribers can now enjoy this additional benefit. With Sony’s recent emphasis on adapting its gaming franchises into movies and TV shows, the inclusion of such perks is now more relevant than ever. However, it is worth noting that Sony made this announcement shortly after raising the price of their annual PS Plus Premium plan from $120 to $160.
Sony is offering a special opportunity for PS4 and PS5 users to purchase select Sony Pictures films in advance. This early access window allows users in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to buy Gran Turismo directly through their console before it becomes available for digital purchase elsewhere. When you purchase the film through Sony Pictures Core, you’ll not only enjoy great entertainment, but you’ll also receive in-game credits for Gran Turismo 7. It’s a fantastic bonus that adds value to your movie experience and enhances your gaming pursuits.
For some time now, the app has been accessible for Bravia TVs and select Xperia devices. However, Sony has recently decided to rebrand the app on those devices starting next year. Previously known as Bravia Core, this change reflects Sony’s intention to update and enhance the user experience.
