  1. When Sony first unveiled the PS4 and mentioned that streaming PS3 games via Gaikai would be a reality down the road, there were many who expected this to come years down the road instead of sooner. Yet, if what Sony's Shuhei Yoshida is saying is correct, we could see it as early as next year. Yoshida made mention that Sony plans to launch the Gaikai streaming service sometime in 2014, with a selection of PS3 games available then. And, similar to the Wii/U's Virtual Console, they'll expand with more games little by little afterward. The good news is you'll be able to experience this on not one, not two, but three different platforms: the PS4, PS Vita, and the more recently announced PS Vita TV (though we still don't know when we'll be getting that). Unfortunately, there's no specific news to share about a European launch at this time, which means that it will likely launch there after the US gets it. Are you excited for playing PS3 games through Gaikai?
  2. Today's Playstation event in New York brought with it a bevy announcements regarding the future of Playstation, not the least of which was the announcement of the upcoming successor to the PS3 called, unsurprisingly, the Playstation 4. Here's a recap of some of the other announcements that were made at the event, including a few game reveals and more. Playstation Vita Will Be Able To Play Certain PS4 Games Via Streaming Vita was discussed for a bit before Sony confirmed that you will be able to stream and play PS4 games on the Vita. Sony hopes that in the future, every PS4 game will be able to be playable on Vita via streaming. PS4 Officially Announced Sony confirmed that the PS4 is actually a thing coming out like we all expected, and that there will be a new Dualshock controller as well as talking about the specs of the machine. For more info, see the full article here. New First-Party PS4 Exclusive "Knack" Announced Mark Cerny (whose credits include Crash Bandicoot) debuted the trailer for his all-new game in development for PS4, called Knack. Knack appears to be a creature/robot that can absorb objects to grow in size, almost looking like the Zelda series' Ganondorf when he's bigger. It's very Pixar-like and appears to be heavily story-driven. PS4's Social Interaction and Gaikai Streaming Discussed Sony discussed a bevy of information regarding the PS4's features, and they're heavily steeped in social integration as well as streaming. You can read more on this here. Guerilla Games Announces Killzone: Shadow Fall Killzone series developer Guerilla Games drew first blood by showing the first game coming to Playstation 4: Killzone: Shadow Fall. Its visuals and physics seemed to stun onlookers in the audience. More can be read about Shadow Fall here. Next Generation Racing Sim Drive Club Announced Evolution Studios, best known for the MotorStorm series on PS3, took to the stage at the press conference to announce the first PS4 racing game, entitled Drive Club. It was revealed that the project had existed as a concept for an entire decade. More on the game here. The inFamous Series Makes Its Grand Return With inFamous: Second Son Many gamers have been wondering what developer Sucker Punch has been up to since the release of inFamous: Festival of Blood, and we got our first look tonight at their latest project: inFamous: Second Son. More on it here. Jonathan Blow Announces The Witness For PS4 Famed Braid developer Jonathan Blow took to the stage in a surprise appearance to announce that his latest game, The Witness, will be for PS4 and subsequently showed a trailer for the title, which has long been in development. More details here. Quantic Dream's David Cage Makes An Appearance David Cage (of Heavy Rain and upcoming Beyond: Two Souls fame) spoke a bit about how games are increasingly able to express the nuances of emotion, and that with the PS4's capabilities, it will be more possible than ever to convey emotion with the game's characters. He also mentioned that Beyond: Two Souls' main character will have 30,000 polygons, making for extremely life-like facial expressions and such. Media Molecule Showcases Move Potential LittleBigPlanet 1 & 2 developer Media Molecule showcased the potential of the Move with a few demos and said that it was their intention to "marry the Move with the PS4. They went on to show how they could manipulate puppetlike characters to put on a rock concert. Capcom Showcases New Engine and IP, Deep Down Capcom's Yoshinori Ono announced a new engine that they've been working on code-named 'Pantha Rei.' He also showed off a brand new IP that looked somewhat reminiscent of Dragon's Dogma called Deep Down. Square-Enix Shows Off Real-Time Rendering in Luminous Engine In order to show off more of the PS4's power, Square-Enix showed off a demo showing off real-time rendering using their Luminous engine, which was impressive. Afterward, they announced that they would have an announcment about Final Fantasy on the PS4 at E3. Ubisoft Talks Watch_Dogs We first saw Watch_Dogs unveiled at last year's E3, but today Ubisoft showed off a different demo of the game and announced that the game would be coming to PS4 as well. Blizzard Announces Partnership With Sony In another surprise appearance, Blizzard announced that they would be partnering with Sony to release Diablo III on the PS3 and PS4. Activision Shows Off Bungie's Destiny Destiny was already blown out in a huge preview event, but they finally showed a bit of footage of the game and mentioned how it would change the way we play first-person shooters. The game would also be getting some exclusive content in the Playstation version. PS4 Bound For Release By the End of the Year Sony announced that the PS4 is on track for a release at the end of the 2013. No pricing has been announced yet, and we still have yet to see what the console looks like. Expect to hear more about the next-gen console at E3 in June.
  3. One thing that always comes up when looking at upcoming systems is whether or not they will be able to play the previous console's games. For the most part, they do offer such compatibility, but not always. At times it has been due to changing media formats, and other times due to expense. The PS4 was revealed to be able to play PS1 to PS3 games, but not in the way you may be expecting. You see, the PlayStation Cloud streaming service will be what brings these aging games to you. With this service you will be able to play "everything everywhere". CEO of Gaika, David Perry, helped clarify this by saying that PS3 games are not "natively supported". It looks that Sony is banking very strongly on their cloud-based initiative. Thankfully everyone with a back catalog of PlayStation games still has their PS3, or maybe even other systems, and Sony is not going to come and steal them. Still, it's always a shame to realize that your media will not be supported on a new device. Would you buy games again to stream them on a PS4? Should Sony make a back catalog of PS and PS2 games freely streamable to Plus subscribers?

    Sony Eating Up "Cloud" Domain Names

    So, there have been rumors about the upcoming PlayStation home system allowing for games to be streamed. It's an entirely plausible rumor, especially when you consider that Sony owns the game streaming service Gaikai already. They acquired the company during Summer of last year. Recently, Gaikai was noticed registering a handful of new domain names. What makes this point to the PlayStation brand and not just more PC-related (or even television) streaming? Well, the names themselves have PS in the title. The new domain names are as follows: PlayStation-Cloud.com/org PS-Cloud.net It isn't necessarily the case that these domain names will be used, but are created to keep others from staking a claim on them. In doing so, they may be revealing their plans a bit as well. Things seem to now be pointing toward the rumor of streaming games on Sony's next console being true. If this turns out to be true, we'll probably see it during tomorrow's conference! Do you think streaming games will be a new addition to PS Plus?
  5. A new report from the WSJ says that the next Playstation, widely believed to be unveiled next week on Feb 20th, will be able to stream PS3 games. This function would be possible using technology made available through Gaikai, which you might remember Sony purchased last year for $380 million. The report states that Sony is heavily investing in Gaikai's technology for the next generation Playstation. This rumor would seem to be backed by the fact that, despite the huge cost of acquiring Gaikai, Sony has not yet revealed what their purpose would be, causing many analysts in 2012 to speculate that the streaming tech would play a huge part in their next generation platform. Another thing to consider is that this would be easiest way to achieve backwards compatibility with the PS3, given that its successor is rumored to back way from the Cell processor and be based on much different architecture. Stay tuned for more info as Sony unveils "the future of Playstation" at its media event in New York this coming Wednesday. Via: Polygon Source: WSJ
