    Rumor: Sony to acquire OnLive or Gaikai

    Sony may be planning to do much more than announce a cloud gaming deal with either Gaikai or OnLive at E3 - it's reportedly soon to reveal it has fully acquired one of the companies.


    That's according to MCV, which says it has been informed by sources that takeover papers are "close to being signed".





    Such an acquisition would have major implications not only for Sony's console arm but its wider business, making it possible for the company to stream its games not only to PlayStation devices but to other consumer technology products like its Bravia TVs and Vaio PCs. Players could benefit from the ability to access gaming content from multiple devices while on the move.

    Back in January, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai suggested that disc-based consoles will remain the norm in the coming years, noting that "there's always going to be requirement for a business of our size and scope to have a physical medium". There's no reason why physical games and streamed ones couldn't live together on PS4, but if so the impact on the games retail sector would be highly significant.
    Sauce.

    If this is true, that would be one hell of a fuckin crazy move by Sony haha.

    So they would basically have a PC gaming platform of their own? Sounds big. But I'd still prefer to actually have the game (through something like Steam), rather than stream games etc. If they add an option to buy and download and play offline then it'll be much better.

    Kaz said at the bottom there that they are sticking with physical media, at least for next gen. I dare say they will stick with their download offerings aswell.

    Would be cool for those that are invested in Gakai or OnLive if Sony gets their first party games on there

    so next gen for Sony could just be an upgraded PS3 that also streams games?

    a few months back, didnt Nanea Reeves (chief product officer for Gaikai) say something like.....

    “Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation,” said Reeves, “that will be the big news at E3.”

    Your post still makes no sense to mine though lol

    I'm talking about them delivering PC games, not about delivering next gen games. Whether or not next gen is DD only I'll still be downloading my games from now on. It's just much easier and no need to worry about wear & tear.

    My brain failed to compute "PC" in your post. Also "pay and download" equated to "buy disc versions and download versions". Few glasses of vodka slowin ole Ghostie down I'll be back on form in the morrow.

    You know what, that kinda fits in with the PC in a box theory of the PS4.
    Woudl certinaly make it more compatable.
    They could still of course sell games for it.

    Nvidia also is ready with its new GRID technology that is faster in terms of latency than your actual console.

    Something tells that even if this goes through and Sony will be able to stream PC games to PS4, Diablo 3 is not likely going be available in this fashion.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    Could mean the PS4 may only exist as development kit and nothing more.

    I dont really beleive that though.

    Would be one way to dramatically extend the life of the machine though.
    All so a good way to get people to subscibe to PSN+

    If this offered a new range of better looking games streamed via PSN+.

    The graphics of the games streamed are in some cases even worse than the consoles so I'm not interested so far.
    Give me max setting graphics with console like latency and then we'll talk

    here is the original article that I posted about it months ago.

    Sony was quick to shoot down rumors that a PS4 would be announced at this year's E3, but things just got a lot more interesting all of a sudden, as 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."
    If true, wow. With Wii U guaranteed to launch in 2012, that means it's either going to be Microsoft or Sony. Our take is that it's probably Sony because financially the company would have a tougher time with the huge R&D and manufacturing for yet another new console.
    Beyond that, it's easy to speculate that perhaps Sony is working on some major cloud gaming partnership with Gaikai instead of devoting resources to another piece of hardware. We'll bring you more as we hear it!

    Holy shit if true but a lot of people would be pissed who prefer to buy games physically. If this is gonna be part of PS+ then I'm subbing up for sure if I can play any game any time. Especially if they get PC games working with mouse/keyboard in the USB slots.

    When I hear the word "stream" I immediately think to the thing that comes before that: BUFFERING.
