Sony PlayStation 4 To Stream Games
The Wall Street Journal:
Sony Corp. is planning to offer technology to stream games to its next videogame console, people familiar with the company’s plans say, alongside other enhancements to bolster its position in the market.
The new technology, to be unveiled Wednesday along with the new console, will allow users to play games delivered over the Internet, these people said. The streaming service, they added, is designed to use current PlayStation 3 titles on the new console; the new device is also expected to play new games stored on optical discs.
This technology comes as a result from the acquisition of Gaikai a year ago. I’m not sold into the whole streaming thing but I think the new console won’t offer backward compatibility. though, great PS3 titles will be remastered with a discounted prices.
