Yoshida: Gaikai to Stream PS3 Titles to PS4 in 2014 for North America
But for Europe, a time frame is currently unknown.
Following Sony’s Andrew House saying that Cloud services for the PlayStation 4 will launch in North America along with the console, even extending support to the Vita, Sony Worldwide Studios president of SCE Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that the console will use Gaikai to offer streaming of PS3 titles to the console for North America in 2014.
This was reported in a post-Tokyo Game Show round-table. Yoshida stated there will be a selection of titles for streaming made available by next year, and that more games will be added over time. As of now, he wants gamers to have a decent selection once the service is launched. It was also confirmed that you’ll be able to play the games via PS Vita and PS Vita TV.
Buying a Vita TV just to remotely play your PS3 games which you’re streaming to your Vita first on your TV? Apparently so. Unfortunately, Yoshida still had no news on a European launch. So stay tuned for more details.
