PlayStation 4 is to offer Gaikai streaming of PS3 titles across North America in 2014, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed.

IGN reports that in a post TGS key-note roundtable, Yoshida stated that a selection of streamed titles will be made available to North America at some point next year. That selection will grow over time.

Yoshida stressed that gamers will want a decent selection of games to browse through from the service’s launch, and confirmed that they will be playable via PS4, PS Vita and PS Vita TV. While the service will launch in North America in 2014, Yoshida was unable to comment on a European launch.

We recently heard that GaiKai’s European launch is now without a time-frame due to broadband concerns across the territory.
