Did not see this coming at all. Wondering how it'll work for the PS3?

Well, this is good news for me in that I was not going to purchase a PS4 unless/until GaiKai started the service on PS4.

 

I would assume the streaming feature would be the same for the PS3 as the PS4. It's intended to allow you to start playing anything without having a full download and eliminating the need for a "double" sized download and install file.

 

More than likely, I would be looking at late-ish 2014 for the PS4 to have all the streaming features that I want(backward compatible games).

This was announced A LONG time ago. They mentioned it at E3. Pay more attention. Peruse the Playstation 4: Everything we know thus far thread.

At E3 this year, back in June, Sony said that Gaikai would be available for PS4, PS3 and later on PS Vita. Here is a E3 video where Sony says that.

This interview just took place after Gamescom. It provides a more definitive commitment than the mere announcement that "somewhere down the road" this would happen IMHO. The interview- if you even read it, mentions how Europe is left out of this service for quite some time.

Does anyone think you can stream PS4 games on the PS3 through this service?

Not sure if that would be possible as the PS4 is an (x86) based system and the PS3 is Cell based. But who knows, digital is digital.

as long as that game does not use touchpad etc, then it would be totally possible.

 

But they won't let that happen.

No, not possible.

 

Two completely different processing architectures..... not to mention PS3 having MUCH less power so I wouldn't even run any PS4 game.

Then again, im pretty sure your comment was nothing more than trollish
