One of the most interesting features of Sony's streaming service, Gaikai, is the fact that it will allow users to use their PS4 to stream PS3 content, with Sony revealing a few days ago that this feature would also be available on the PS Vita. However, according to Shuhei Yoshida, Sony's President, the Gaikai service might also be available in other devices.

In an interview with Dengeki Online, Yoshida revealed that Gaikai could stream PlayStation games to other devices such as PC, TV, Blu-ray players, tablets and smartphones. Sony's president noted that this is still a possibility and it's currently being studied, and added that he wants PlayStation to go from hardware to something closer to a service.

"Speaking of the ultimate goal, we would like to deliver PlayStation games to all devices. So we're considering various things like PC, TVs, Blu-ray players, smartphones and tablets. We hope to continue to expand not only to Sony devices, but even to devices other than Sony's," said Yoshida.

Gaikai will be available in 2014 in North America, while Europe doesn't have a release window yet. This service will allow players to stream a select library of PS3 games, which can be acessed via PS4, PS Vita and PS Vita TV.
