http://gaikai.com/ - Seems like something is brewing and there will be some announcements sometime in the not so distant future. Alot of interesting titles strewn around the site's wallpapers, get'em on the cloud Sony!
Saw this on NeoGAF
ioS and andriod support.
No longer do you need a PS3 to play PS3 games...err yay?
That is so cool. :)
I like the new look of the site. I'm really looking forward to next year's E3 and the imminent PlayStation 4 unveiling.
After we discovered that Gaikai’s new site is literally teeming with reveals of AAA games coming to the service, we didn’t stop digging, finding stuff like the above humorous image, and some more new information – Gaikai is coming to Android, iOS and more.
Job listings often leave much to the imagination, so it’s hard to know what they are working on, but Gaikai’s listing for an “Android/Java Programmer” is incredibly obvious. It states:
Successfully get Gaikai running on Android and other mobile devices
Help design and build UI for Gaikai and affiliated pages in order to optimize visual and functional appeal for Android and other mobile devices
Work closely with the tech team and ensure all designs meet specifications and standards for the web, and have cross-platform usability and accessibility
Find innovative ways to incorporate new ideas into the mobile user experience
And before you think that Android is the only focus, it mentions that applicants must have “Experience in application development for multiple platforms (iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile)”.
On top of that, the Senior Programmer’s responsibilities are to “Create/maintain iPhone/iPad (or other) client”.
Previously, PSLS exclusively uncovered that Gaikai was working on bringing their platform to iOS devices prior to the Sony buyout.
I'm positive Sony will innovate with Gaikai and cloud gaming will the pinnacle of entertainment.
That, and I'm not a fan of cloud gaming, at all. Having to constantly be connected, not actually owning games, much less reliability, lag. so many negatives
Either that or Sony is signalling there is no PS4.
Don't forget this....
cloud gaming service Gaikai has commented that one of the current console manufacturers actually won't be creating another console for the next generation. Speaking during CES , Nanea Reeves, chief product officer for Gaikai, predicted, "Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3."
What if the PS4 is a cloud only console? Or the Orbis is merely the dev/server kits?
I'd be pretty ****ing depressed

The PS4 won't be cloud only, Kaz already said that the next console won't abandon physical media.
Why would I buy a PS3 if I can play Uncharted 1-3 streamed on my PC?
If they are still not making money on hardware, then fair enough, but I assume they are making money on the PS3 these days.
But even if you did play Uncharted on your PC, Sony still wins and laughs to the bank with your money so it doesn't really matter does it?
You should just bite the bullet and get into it. You could wait for months for the right price which might equate to the cost of a game or 2, but you'd be able to get balls deep into some badass games. I don't know how anyone could go so far through this gen without experiencing the amazing titles Sony has put out.
This is looking mighty fine :D
Damn looks like Sony might go the way of Sega and just be a software company. Doubt it but if they really start struggling that'll be what this is for.
