I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Gaikai Problematic In Europe, Coming To North America Early 2014

Posted on Tuesday, September 3 @ 05:06:43 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Sony has been working hard in order to get its cloud-based gaming service up and running as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it looks like the company has run into a few issues in trying to bring the service to Europe.

SCEE president and CEO Jim Ryan explained to Edge that Gaikai support for PS4 gamers in NA will be available starting sometime in early 2014, but those in Europe will have to wait longer. 

So 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.

Are you excited to see how Sony's implementation of Gaikai affects the future of the PlayStation brand? Do you think it will prove to be a major selling point of the PlayStation 4? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
