At CES 2014, Sony has just taken the wraps off an upcoming service called PlayStation Now.

In a nutshell, this will enable you to stream PS3 games to your console, your telly, your PS Vita, and your smartphone.

PlayStation Now won't be out for a while, mind. A beta version will be available this month, sure, but the full service won't go live in the US until the summer. Oh, and there are no official plans for a global launch.

For now, then, let's while away the weeks by thinking about the PS3 games we'd most like to stream to Vita.


The Last of Us

The Last of Us

Last year, Naughty Dog took time off from Nathan Drake and his grave-robbing exploits to deliver this powerful post-apocalyptic thriller.

The game stars hardened survivor Joel on a mission to escort 14-year-old Ellie across a ravaged America, replete with infectious zombies and murderous bandit dudes.

Not only is this a tense stealth game (and a scrappy, bloody, violent brawler when things don't go as planned), but it's also a memorable, emotional story about an unlikely duo and their changing relationship.


Trash Panic

Trash Panic

Trash Panic - a personal favourite of mine - is a lot like Tetris. Instead of neatly stacking blocks to the tune of catchy Russian ditties, though, you're trying to shove rubbish into a giant blue bin.

You're graded here on how eco-friendly you are, and whether you let biodegradable objects decompose or just burn everything to ash and cinders.

Things start off small as you try to trash pencils, staplers, and coffee mugs. Soon enough, however, you'll have to dispose of cars, then oil rigs, then mountain ranges, and then entire planets.

It's bonkers Japanese nonsense, and perfect for Vita.


Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto IV

The PS Vita has, so far, had to manage without its own Grand Theft Auto game. But why wait for Rockstar to make a new entry in the series when you could just stream its biggest, boldest, and most absurdly ambitious game to your handheld.

With GTA V, Rockstar takes us back to Los Santos (a cartoon satire of Los Angeles) and invites us to swap between three characters (retired robber Michael, young buck Franklin, and homicidal maniac Trevor).

These three morons will find themselves working together to pull off complicated pre-meditated heist missions. But, like in most GTA games, it's often better to blow off the main story, hijack a police helicopter, and just go cause some mayhem in the mountains in this open-world epic.


Tokyo Jungle

Tokyo Jungle

Humans are extinct. Tokyo is no longer a bustling metropolis - in fact, it's now the background for a vicious survival adventure where Pomeranian dogs must band together to beat up chimps, tigers, and dinosaurs.

The maker of this bizarre PSN game harks back to a time when video games were patently ridiculous. Yep, plots that didn't make any sense and some inventive new gameplay systems that didn't involve shooting foreigners in the face.

There's also an interesting way to change the difficulty in Tokyo Jungle. Once you've mastered the art of playing as a carnivorous canine, try restarting your adventure as a herbivore deer. Survival is even harder when you've got "dinner" tattooed on your hide.


Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex Human Revolution

In this slick sci-fi shooter, we follow the story of Adam Jensen, a humble security guard who is transformed into a cybernetic RoboCop badass after his body is blown to bits in a terrorist bomb blast.

Jensen can track down his attackers in any way he sees fit: by sneaking through the shadows; hacking into computers; shooting dudes; or just punching through walls and stabbing baddies in the neck with his nifty elbow blades.

Between missions, you can wander around futuristic cities to do odd jobs and buy new weapons from seedy back alley salesmen. This is a huge and deeply involving shooter, and I want it on Vita.

Yes, I did ask for this.
