  • Since HTC has been flirting with the idea of launch its very own cloud gaming service, why wouldn’t Sony do that as well? So this is why their recent purchase of cloud gaming service Gaikai isn’t that surprising. They paid $380 million for the service, that will give Sony more presence in the mobile gaming area.

    The Gaikai “engineering talent” and “game platform knowledge” are praised as advantages that Sony will use in the future. Gaikai CEO David Perry said that he’s honored to help Sony increase the popularity of its ecosystem. It’s not yet sure what Sony will do with this acquired company, but before they do anything, they must secure regulatory approval. Sony Computer Entertainment is expected to build its very own cloud service and give users the opportunity to do their streaming, cloud storing and gaming via their service.

    It would be nice if we would get a cloud service that would allow for smoother interaction between PlayStation consoles and Android phones, like Microsoft does with the Xbox 360 and Windows Phone devices. It would be cool to store in the cloud your achievements from the PS3 and also games that are compatible with the latest quad core phones, if possible. It would also be cool to play a game on the PS Vita versus someone on an Android Xperia model. However we’ll have to wait and see if Sony can deliver that…
