Sony PSOne and PS2 games may come to PS3 with cloud gaming app

Company has inked a deal with Galkai, according to reports

PS3 owners can't use their old PSOne and PS2 discs on the console, but a new cloud streaming solution, set to be announced at E3 next week, could bring hundreds of classic titles

PS3 gamers may finally be able to play old PlayStation 2 and PSOne games on their beloved console, with the Japanese giant set to announce a new cloud gaming deal at E3 next week.

Reports suggest Sony has teamed-up with the existing cloud gaming platform Galkai who will offer the entire back catalogue of titles from the previous generations' machines.

If the speculation is true, gamers will be able to stream the titles to their PlayStation 3 via a Galkai app, rather than download them individually.

It is thought that there'll be a monthly subscription fee associated with using the app, which could bring hundreds upon hundreds of classic titles to the console, infamous for its lack of backwards compatibility.

While the move is sure to delight some fans of old-school PlayStation games, who've long-since ditched their machines and old games collection, it's sure to upset some who'll feel they will be paying for the same games twice.

All is likely to be revealed at what is shaping up to be a really exciting E3. Keep it locked to T3 all week for the latest from LA.
