PlayStation cloud gaming service rumoured for E3

Sony will strike a deal with OnLive or Gaikai at E3 next month for PlayStation cloud gaming, according to reports.

The platform-holder will announce a new game streaming service for 'PlayStation hardware' at the annual trade show in Los Angeles, according to VG247.

It's not clear whether this service could be for PS3 or PS Vita, both, or the next PlayStation home console.

Both OnLive and Gaikai offer cloud gaming streaming services. These allow users to stream full games or demos instantly online without the need for discs or hardware installations. Gamers can currently use devices such as PCs, TVs, smartphones, laptops and tablets to stream games online.

Last year OnLive said it had talked with Sony and Microsoft regarding a potential console collaboration.

Sony's E3 2012 press conference takes place on June 4th.
