Sony's cloud-based gaming service coming in 2014

Sony has announced that its cloud gaming services will become available in the US first some time in 2014. The service, using Gaikai's streaming tech, will come first to PS4 and PS3 and later to Vita, and will give gamers access to a wide range of PS3 titles.

Sony purchased Gaikai in July of last year, and we speculated at the time that the service would be best used to offer some sort of backward compatibility for PS3 games. And we were right, sort of. No details regarding price have been revealed yet.
