Sony had some other big news to share at CES other than how many PlayStation 4 consoles they sold (4.2 million if you're counting). Remember when Sony purchased the Gaikai streaming service? It's finally ready for consumer use.
With this new PlayStation Now service, PlayStation owners can stream PlayStation 3 games through their PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita systems. Once the entire PS3 library goes live with the service, backwards compatibility will no longer be an issue with the PlayStation 4.
Sony doesn't want to stop just with PlayStation systems. They will expand the service to their BRAVIA TVs, tablets, and smartphones. Sony will also eventually offer a game rental service with PlayStation Now.
The beta program for the service will start at the end of January, and Sony hopes to roll out PlayStation Now in its entirety (with a limited PS3 library, of course) by the summer. Sony has not said when or if they will include PlayStation One and/or PlayStation 2 games with this service.
In addition, be aware that this service does not allow access to PSN games you've already purchased. This will be a separate service from the PSN and even from PlayStation Plus. No word on subscription fees as of yet either.
