Press Release:

PlayStation Cloud Websites Found, Service Expected To Be Announced At PlayStation Meeting

Superannuation have found websites registered to Gaikai called PlayStation Cloud. the logical assumption would be that PlayStation Cloud would be a part of the PlayStation Network. 

Presently, Cloud Save Games exist as a part of PlayStation Plus, separate from anything. i expect PlayStation Cloud to include the Save Game Service but also much more. the fact that Gaikai is the group that registered the websites leads me to think that rumors about game streaming could very well be true. it could well be that PS3 games and PS3 PSN Games will be streamed from your personal Cloud. it is also possible this service will extend to both PS2 and PS1 games but there is no reason why PSP and PS Vita games can't be streamed via the same service. whilst that is possible, i don't expect that to be announced, it would make sense for Sony to save it and implement it later.
