The PlayStation 4’s cloud-based streaming features will be coming to the new console in early 2014, Sony revealed during the company’s E3 press conference.
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.
