Gaikai will stream PS3 games to the PS4 in 2014

Sony to utilize its cloud-based service, Gaikai, to stream PS3 games to the PS4 starting in 2014 (NYSE:SNE)

We've been wondering what Sony would do after it purchased premium cloud-based service Gaikai, but now we know: Sony will stream PS3 games to the PlayStation 4 starting next year. This will go around the issue that the PS4 is an x86-based device, compared to the custom chips inside of the PS3.

We shouldn't expect full compatibility and the entire PS3 library, but the Japanese company has said that Gaikai would compliment its next-gen console nicely, affording for interactive functions like Remote Play and more. The news comes directly from Sony Worldwide Studios president, Shuhei Yoshida, when he spoke at the Tokyo Game Show earlier this week in Japan.

 

Yoshida stated that Gaikai will begin offering the streaming of certain PS3 games to the PS4 starting next year in the US. Yoshida also confirmed that Sony plans to continuously build up the PS3 library for the PS4, where it'll first build a core library, constantly adding titles to it.
