Gaikai streaming confirmed for 2014 in North America


Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that Gaikai streaming of PS3 titles on PS4 will start across North America in 2014.

Streamed titles will be made available to North America at some point next year, although Gaikai’s European launch is still currently without a timeframe due to the varying broadband coverage throughout the region.

Does PS3 games streaming via PS4 interest you?

I'm committed to next gen and I'll be getting a PS4 at release, but I'm gutted games like Dark Souls 2 for example are not coming to PS4, so Gaikai streaming might give me the chance to play it. That said, if it's possible to buy the game and download it from PSN I'd rather do that over streaming. Am I bothered that the EU won't have Gaikai from the get go? Not really.

Me neither, maybe some people with 50Mb connections will be able to get it to work, for most people it's just not realistic or viable.

And that's Virgin Media, the official ISP for the PS4.

Don't Virgin Media cap and reduce your speeds at peak times and when you've used too much though? Sky is good because it's unlimited all the time.

They say that but even though I was on Sky Unlimited I was getting 4mbps some days and 2mbps most days

You was probably on normal broadband, not fibre. if so then the average for that is around 5mb and depends how far you are from your local box.

Also, of course you wont have the exact same speed at all times, it can drop for many reasons. But VM actually cap you when there is heavy load at peak times.

I prefer to play it native on my PS3, but depending on the latency, I may be happy with Genkai

I have told you before that Fibre is not available in my Area (Available everywhere else around me but not my area) Also a rarely 4mbps and a usual 2mbps (They also refused to send out a new router) with Sky is a lot worse than what I get with EE, 4mbps-5mbps (It's half and half) Upload has always been 0.6

Higher upload is better when hosting multiplayer games though. Although it does seem like a lot of new games are using dedicated servers instead of player hosted matches.
