Recent reports suggest that the next PlayStation system, codenamed Orbis, will contain streaming tech provided by Sony's recently-acquired Gaikai. The cloud-based service will enable playback of PS3 games on Sony's next console--even as they transition to an entirely new chip architecture.

It's likely Sony will officially announce their cloud initiative during tomorrow's press conference, as Gaikai has just registered numerous domains related to "PlayStation Cloud."

Discovered by Superannuation, a number of URLs related to "PlayStation Cloud" were registered on February 15th. Given the flexibility of cloud-based services, one has to wonder if Sony has ambitions to bring the PlayStation Cloud to devices other than the PS4. We'll all find out tomorrow.
