RUMOR: Sony and Gaikai to bring backwards compatibility to all PS3 consoles
The rumor mill, she's a turning.
According to unnamed game industry sources cited by Games Industry International, Sony has struck a deal with Gaikai that'll allow all iterations of their current-gen hardware to play both PS2 and PS1 titles by streaming the content from a cloud server. The service, GI's sources say, will offer both first- and third-party titles, and will be capable of selling items from the PlayStation catalogue to players.
If there is a partnership, neither business is saying anything about it. Both companies have declined to comment one way or another. Chances are good that we'll be hearing something about this at E3, however, so keep your ears peeled.
