Gaikai streaming to hit PS4 in Europe in 2015

It's being reported that Sony’s partnership with Gaikai will see the latter's streaming services arrive in Europe come 2015.

Once the service does arrive, gamers will be able to play PS3 titles via the cloud on PS4, with other devices, such as PS Vita, also planned to support the service.

Currently the US launch is planned for Q3 with the company being "very much on track" to hit that time frame according to Sony's Andrew House.

There are other uses for Gaikai tech, for instance, it is responsible for the way remote play works between PS4 and PS Vita.

That's a bit of a shame. If it really doesn't hit the PS4 until 2015, I can't see many people taking advantage of it to play PS3 games. Especially if it ends up being a subscription service.

Got to agree, they're really leaving it too late, PS3 releases will slow down in the next year, by 2015 you'll be lucky if there's anything more than FIFA getting a PS3 release. Buying a PS3 is already cheaper than buying a years PS plus, unless gakai is free it'll be completely pointless by then.

And where exactly PS3 is cheaper than PSplus years subscription?

Seems like Gaikai is a somehow tricky technology, it just can't be done in a week and needs particular infrastructure and networking quality. I think Sony+Gaikai need to strengthen their presence in USA in 2014, Europe will come next. 2015 is okay I think...

Gloria - "Buying a PS3 is already cheaper than buying a years PS plus" Are you drunk? Link me up to these sub £40 PS3s please.

Yeah it's more expensive than a years subscription to it. Although really at this point I see no reason in not getting both. No doubt most of the better games won't be out on Gaikai till later, if ever if the way the PS2-PS3 games have been
