Gaikai, Sony’s response to backwards compatibility, is going to be roaring to Sony systems sometime in 2014. During E3, Sony’s Andrew House mentioned that PlayStation 3 games would able to be streamed on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2014. He also mentioned that PlayStation Vita streaming would be available shortly after.
Earlier in February, during the first PlayStation 4’s first reveal, Sony mentioned that Gaiaki could stream games back to the original PlayStation. While the PlayStation 4 doesn’t’ offer direct backwards compatibility it looks like Gaikai will be the answer. I mean, ultimately, the whole library could be at users disposal to download… and that’ one heck of an ability. We really look forward to seeing what Gaikai can. With the strong presentation Sony’s already had at E3 this backwards compatibility is just another great step in the right direction.
