PlayStation 4 could stream PS3 games off the Internet: Report

With just one day to go for Sony's event in New York where it is likely to announce the next generation PlayStation console, The Wall Street Journal reports that the company's new console will be integrated with a technology that will allow it to stream games via the Web.

Citing "people familiar with the company's plans", the report says that this potential streaming service will be designed to use current PlayStation 3 titles on the latest console and is also expected to play new games stored on optical discs.

It's no secret that Sony acquired Gaikai, a cloud-based gaming service that allows users to play high-end PC and console games rendered on remote servers via Internet streaming for $380 million. But the report doesn't specifically mention that Sony will use Gaikai to deliver brand-new games. Those will reportedly still be delivered on optical discs. Instead, the next PlayStation will allow users to access existing PlayStation 3 games on the new system using the streaming technology.
