WSJ: Playstation 4 Will Stream PS3 Games

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 17, 2013 in Videogames |


Another rumor about the PS4 in the lead-up to the February 20th announcement? Say it isn’t so! The Wall Street Journal is reporting that while PS4 games will still probably be delivered on disc or digital download, PS3 games will instead be streamed to the system as compressed video. Sony had acquired game-streaming company Gaikai a while back, and everyone assumed the tech would be integrated into the next system – the real question was how. Another potential use, I believe, will be game demos. And perhaps even better, is that the option will exist then to stream PS3 games to any other internet connected device, such as PCs, the Vita, or smartphones. Hopefully Sony will capitalize on this! We’ll find out everything on the 20th. Stay tuned!
