The world-renowned tech firm has confirmed that its cloud game streaming service - which is available on PlayStation 4 and Windows PCs - will be heading to Italy, Spain, Portugal, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway .

The much-anticipated roll-out is scheduled for later this year - although the company has not yet announced a specific date.

Sony revealed plans to host regional beta testing this month, with the service already firmly established as one of the best cloud gaming services on the market.

Sony is, of course, also a major player in the VR market.

And Atsushi Morita, Sony's Japan and Asia president for computer entertainment, previously insisted the VR experience - which enables gaming enthusiasts to face-off against their digital adversaries in a more life-like way from the comfort of their own living rooms - is the "biggest invention" since TV.

He explained: "In terms of visual experience at home, we believe this is the biggest innovation since the emergence of television.

"It's like a time machine that allows you to go to any place and become anything that you want to be."
