Sony Japan Vice President on PS3 Games Streamed Via Cloud to PS Vita: “It’s Really Amazing”

Sony Computer Entertainment has talked a lot about the upcoming PlayStation cloud service that will launch in North America next year, allowing gamers to stream PS3 games to PS4, PS Vita and PS Vita TV. But how does it work on the small PS Vita? Amazingly well, according to Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia Senior Vice President Hiroshi Ueda.

I can't wait for remote play.

pedrof931403d ago (Edited 1403d ago )

It means that the hardware doesn't make a difference ?

This could be the very future of gaming.

abzdine1403d ago

is this done via Gaikai? or just via a software update?

GribbleGrunger1403d ago (Edited 1403d ago )

Gaikai is a service, like Netflix for games. It will be rolled out on PSVita, PS4, VitaTV, laptops, pads, phones, TVs or Blu-ray players.

Just to clarify because it seems that some people are still confused by this:

Gaikai: streaming a games library of PS1/PS2/PS3/PSP/PSVita/And at some point PS4 games to many different devices, like Netflix streams movies. Everything is calculated and run server side and piped to you via the internet.

Remote play: Remote play for the PS4 uses Gaikai technology. It streams data between 'local' devices OR via the internet FROM one device to another. It doesn't run games server side. You require the hardware for this to work.

Sony says its really amazing guys. There we have it we just got an honest oppinion guys this is amazing!

Next up deep down gets reviewed by capcom! Wonder what they will say? lololololol

I don't get how people are so confused by how Gaikai works. The servers were still up when Sony was trying to purchase them, and people who were interested should have tried it then. Not being aggressive, I just don't see how people are missing out on this great service.

Here's how it use to work

And 2 years (2014) it will roll out to the PS4, PSV, PSV TV, and PS3 and let you stream PS3 games to any of those devices. Simply click on the game you want to play and it'll be streamed just like Netflix.

I'd much rather have Remote Play my PS3 on my Vita.

There is a hack for it, so why not make it happen?

FamilyGuy1403d ago (Edited 1403d ago )

Gaikai is definitely a possible future, it all has a reliance on your internet setup though.

Theoretically, Gaikai could release exclusive games that are above the technical specs of the PS4. This would mean you could play future games without ever buying a new console. If your connection is good enough you could play PC games, streamed through Gaikai, that never released on a PS system or high-end PC versions of games with more options turned up.

It's just like how you'll be able to play PS3 and PS4 games on the Vita, the system will be the thing doing all the work.
It's very futuristic and the reason why other game streaming services have been trying to come out and be successful.

Come to think of it, this is just another one of Sony's Trojan Horse tactics. PS1 played CDs as a bonus, PS2 Dvds, PS3 bluray, PS4 will have the bonus of being a game streaming console. Both to the Vita as its server as well as from Gaiksi as its receiver.

Hopefully it all works out nicely.

He isn't talking about remote play. He's talking about cloud gaming. Where you stream games from cloud gaming servers not from local hardware.

badz1491403d ago

This is THE reason Vita TV will be a must have console for gamers. Portable PS4 and GAIKAI device you can play anywhere with internet connection. Even without internet, you still have a Vita connected to your big screen. $100? SCORE!

PoSTedUP1403d ago

Yes, we have come a long way, but why aren't they talking about price yet?

CocoWolfie1403d ago

i think the streaming capability will be implemented with the consoles, i couldnt see it costing anything, more like a feature.

Conzul1403d ago

Bundled with PS Plus, I imagine. They might add another tier for it though, like 10/mo or something. Hope not though...

M-M1403d ago

Probably free for local, PS+ feature for streaming over the internet.

MasterCornholio1403d ago

Now this is the cloud I'm looking for ( game streaming)
