According to the Wall Street Journal, Sony’s next console will bring backwards compatibility for PS3 games via cloud-based streaming; stating that the firm is "investing heavily" in preparing Gaikai’s technology for the PS4.

The report matches up with rumours from last year that claimed Sony was looking into a cloud-based technology for running PS3 titles on its latest hardware.

Sony is set to unveil what most believe will be the Playstation 4 at an event in New York City this Wednesday, February 20th.
