PS4 Gaikai PS3 game streaming service launching in 2014

Sadly missing the console’s “Holiday 2013” launch window, game streaming will be provided by Gaikai, giving access to plenty of “critically acclaimed” PS3 and PS4 games. It’s a particularly important service, seeing as the PlayStation 4 won’t be backwards compatible with PS3 discs.

Vita games will also be available for streaming, though that feature too is expected to land a little further down the line again.

It is not yet clear whether the streaming launch in early 2014 will be global, or just for select territories.

  • Cant wait for gaikai, I can see my self using gaikai on android, ps3 and ps4. I hope it will also be optimized for 3G and Not Just 10-50 MBPS Speeds. Wow If this is so I wonder how it would be for PS5 Games, Probably wont even need a console just a good smart phone with Bluetooth and whatever the latest generation of mobile telecommunications technology.
