Sony has released a new app for PlayStation 4 and 5: Sony Pictures Core. This is an evolution of the Bravia Core app that was previously only available on Sony TVs of the same name. With this new addition, players can use the service via the media section of the console.
Sony Pictures Core is actually a video service containing a collection of about 2,000 movies, which can be streamed to TV and now also to PlayStation, as well as select Xperia devices. Movies are streamed on a purchase or rental basis, so it’s different from a service like Netflix.
What gives the app extra value is that you can purchase some Sony Pictures movies early and exclusively. A good example of this is Gran Turismo, which recently arrived in theaters.
Please note that this film is available in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand with release in other markets coming soon including the Netherlands. Upon purchasing the film, buyers will then receive credits for Gran Turismo 7, which is an added bonus.
If you’re a PlayStation Plus Premium subscriber, you’ll have access to a catalog of around 100 movies as part of your subscription. This catalog is ad-free and receives regular updates. Sony has announced that there will also be additional benefits for all PlayStation Plus subscribers, but we’ll have to wait and see on that for now.
