Did you know? Sony's announced its latest gaming technology, Playstation Now.

Basically, PlayStation Now will transfer the library of PSOne, PS2, PS3, PS4 and Vita games to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Vita gaming platforms, as well as Sony TVs, tablets and smartphones.

How is this possible you might ask? Well, the gaming technology of Gaikai’s cloud streaming, the games will be playable on numerous platforms as the device will simply be necessary for running the controller & video inputs, and the servers on Sony’s side will essentially run the games themselves.

Check out the linkage of the latest new reporting for the Sony’s Playstation Now:

Adrian Covert @CNNMoneyTech reports here that, “At the Consumer Electronics Show Tuesday, Sony (SNE) CEO Kaz Hirai and Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House took the stage to talk about the service, which will launch in June. PlayStation Now uses the power of the cloud to do all the processing instead of a living room box, and only requires gamers to have a controller and a screen with access to PlayStation Now.”

According to Forbes Tech contributor Dave Their here, “If it works, that means the end of consoles. Local computing, and thus the need to have a $400 computer humming away beneath your flatscreen, becomes obsolete. No PS4s, no Xbox Ones, just an internet connection piping games directly to your TV.”

Eddie Makuch from GAMESPOT stated here that, “Sony has launched a website here for users interested in getting the latest information about the company's just-announced cloud-based streaming service PlayStation Now. Leaving your name, email, address, and PlayStation Network ID will allow you to receive "exclusive information" about PlayStation Now, but no other details are available.”

Happy gaming gamers!
