Sony Corp. has already said that the PlayStation 4 will be able to play games developer for the PlayStation 3 via cloud streaming service provided by Gaikai, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony. What Sony has not announced is that streaming of PS3 titles is also coming to the company’s mobile and low-cost platforms, i.e., PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Vita TV.

“We are planning to start serving PS3 games on cloud servers in the United States next year for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita – and that means PS Vita TV as well – and expand in regions and content. As far as content is concerned, the first games that will exist will be PS3 games,” said Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony worldwide studios, in an interview with Edge-Online web-site.

Availability of high-quality PlayStation 3 titles on mobile and low-cost platforms represents two breakthroughs for Sony. First, Gaikai service will clearly have customers that want to play video games and can pay for them. Second, Sony’s mobile and low-cost gaming platforms get extremely advanced PS3 titles that are way ahead of what is available on competing platforms.

What is important is that Sony wants to ensure the best possible user experience with games that will stream from Gaikai’s cloud servers. Therefore, every single title will be certified (perhaps, even modified) to run on cloud servers and be streamed to PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Vita TV.

“We have to make sure that the game can work through the Internet, so we have to go through certification for each title. So we will start with a certain number of titles and gradually expand the library,” added Mr. Yoshida.
