At E3, Sony revealed lots of details regarding Gaikai, since the most interesting feature of the PS4 was that it would stream PS3 content. Unfortunately, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe doesn't know yet known when the Gaikai server will be available in Europe.

Speaking to the EDGE magazine after Sony's conference at this year's Gamescom, Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, said that broadband problems are the reason why Gaikai service is without a release window in Europe.

"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," said Ryan.

"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."

Ryan also had the chance to reveal that the Gaikai service will be available in North America in early 2014. The PS4 will be released on the 15th of November in North America, arriving at Europe two weeks later, on the 29th of November.
