PlayStation 4 To Stream PS3 Games

PS4 Controller
Sony makes it big in the news time and again with the Destination PlayStation Event edging ever closer. Sony is expected to reveal the PlayStation 4 at this event and with all the rumors flying around it certainly seems true.

Information about the controller and speculation on possible launch titles have been on the news recently but this time, we bring you the news of the console’s backwards compatibility, courtesy of The Wall Street Journal.

To play the PS3 games, the console will make use of the Gaikai technology which it acquired back in 2012 for a price of $380 million. Such a heavy investment must be worth it, but we’ll find out more in time.

Cloud gaming will be a big part of the new console, although discs will still be used. We don’t know yet whether there will be any incentives to the users for purchasing a digital copy for cloud gaming if they already have the disc. Stay tuned for more information.
