PlayStation 4 to 'offer full game streaming'

By
Sony's PlayStation 4 will have the ability to stream full games online.

The platform holder will use the technology it acquired when it purchased cloud gaming firm Gaikai to bring the service to its next-generation system.

Sony will use the streaming system as a means of allowing players to run PS3 titles on the new machine and may offer a rental or subscription service, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Sony is widely expected to unveil the PS4 at its February 20 press conference, with images of what is believed to be prototype controllers for the console recently leaking online.

The peripherals appear similar in design to the standard PS3 controller, except with a touchpad at the centre and a light at the top that is expected to function in the same way as the orb at the end of the Move controller.

Details on the hardware specs for Sony's new console were recently leaked along with reports that the system will feature 4K resolution support in line with a rumoured new range of Sony TVs.

Sony will allegedly demonstrate the streaming technology alongside the console at next Wednesday's event.
