Time for Gakai to Pay Off for Sony with New Game Streaming Service
Sony's CES 2014 press conference (all of which you can see below in video form) included medical imaging, TVs and numbers. It also included PlayStationNow - a new game/cloud streaming service that be debut in the USA in the Summer of 2014.

The official word is that, "PS Now will deliver a variety of popular PlayStation®3 (PS3) game titles first on PlayStation 4 (PS4) and PS3 systems, followed by the PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) system." But there's more...

"In addition to PlayStation platforms, most 2014 U.S. models of Sony’s Bravia TV lineup will support PS Now. Eventually the service will expand beyond PlayStation platforms and Sony devices, allowing users to stream PlayStation games on numerous other Internet-connected devices.

"PS Now will offer choice to gamers with how they want to access content. Gamers can rent by title for specific games they are interested in, or they can choose a subscription that delivers additional value with the ability to explore and play many games available across a wide variety of genres. In addition, the service will support many popular PSNSM features such as online multi-player, Trophies, and messages."

So, CEO Kaz Hirai's hope that he can pull Sony's TV and entertainment divisions together using the heritage of gaming and the spend on Gakai is go!
