Sony to Bring Backwards Compatability to All PS3s?

June 1, 2012

News

Owners of the PS3 Slim are being treated to some amazing news, if GamesIndustry International’s information is correct.

According to them, Sony is working out a deal with Gaikai to stream PSOne and PS2 back catalog games to the PS3 with a streaming service. First-party titles are rumored to be guaranteed, but it’s also likely third-party developers will be partnering with Gaikai for this service. Given the popularity of the several PS2 HD remakes released so far, it’s likely players will love being able to play even more classic games on their newer systems. Many content providers have already signed on with the streaming company, such as YouTube, Facebook, and LG.

No information has been released yet as to whether any other Sony devices, such as TVs and the Vita, will be able to take advantage of this service.

It’s very likely that Sony will be releasing more details to corroborate this information at their E3 press conference. Be sure to tune in with GamersXtreme on Monday, June 4 at 9 PM EST.
