PS4′s cloud Europe launch at uncertain date

PS4′s cloud Europe launch at uncertain date

Jim Ryan explains the news.

SCEE CEO and president, Jim Ryan, explained to Edge why Gaikai-powered streaming won’t be available in Europe for an uncertain period.

“The plan is to begin with North America next year and the plan is to provide a streaming service that will allow for PS3 content initially to be streamed to firstly PS4 then PS Vita and then PS3.

And so that will happen in 2014 in North America initially. Now, and I touched upon these issues of broadband in Europe during the presentation – Europe is of course on the roadmap for that service to be deployed at some point in the future, but for reasons outside of our control we don’t yet have a timeline for it.”

Ryan also confirmed that these problems were why Sony didn’t bring up Gaikai at its Gamescom conference.

“At a show which is now pretty global in its reach but primarily aimed at a European audience, we didn’t really want to start talking about the virtues of this great cloud-based service without knowing exactly when it’ll come to Europe. We’ve got a roadmap, there’s just a few bumps along the road that need to be ironed out.”

Thank you kindly, CVG!
