We won't pretend we haven't said this all along, because we have, however here's another rumour for you.
The PlayStation 4 will be capable of playing PS3 games via cloud streaming service Gaikai, according to a Wall Street Journal report.
Citing unnamed sources the site claims that this new the feature will be unveiled at Sony's PlayStation Meeting event on February 20, when it's also expected to unveil the PlayStation 4.
Sony Computer Entertainment acquired cloud-based gaming service Gaikai back in July 2012 and its obviously planning to use the company for something. So could this be it?
It seems obvious that the PS4 won't be backwards compatible in any other way, since it's rumour to no longer contain the cell processor, so the only other way for the company to provide this would be to stream the games via the cloud.
What do you think?
In semi-related news, Sony has started the build up to the meeting next week by way of a new video series, 'the evolution of PlayStation'. The video which you can see below, shows the beginnings of the brand, which will no doubt bring some nostalgia to some.
Sounds like Sony are building up to something, don't you think?
