    Question Should Sony rebrand Gaikai?

    Its a pretty difficult word to pronounce.

    Do you think Sony should rebrand?

    If so, what should they call it?

    my suggestion would be "PS CLOUD".


    Suggestions So FAR


    PSCLOUD

    PS ecosystem (just for fun, why not cyn?)

    PlayStation Cloud [GhostRhayne]

    PlayNow

    PlayGames

    Play iT!

    PSeverywhere

    PSCloud Services

    PlayCLoud

    CloudSource

    PlayCrowd

    CloudPlay

    FireCLoud

    Lightning

    CloudVolt

    Cloud Strife [AaronSoldier]

    Correct.

    Our favourite internet investigator, Superannuation, has uncovered a domain registration that points to the future of Gaikai. Most PlayStation fans will be aware that Gaikai is the game streaming service bought by Sony last year. It’s widely speculated that it might appear in some form in Sony’s new console but it appears that we won’t know it as the, slightly tricky-to-pronounce, Gaikai anymore.PS-Cloud.net, PlayStation-Cloud.org and PlayStation-Cloud.com (all links to whois lookups) have all been registered to Gaikai inc., along with various other related top level domains.

    What's the point. It's now just a service within the PS ecosystem. It doesn't necessarily even need a name. It's now simply gonna be a way to play demos and later full games instantly.

    Isn't it going beyond PS products though?

    I Personally find it Cumbersome, but then again, I hail from the north of England, so should be expected right.

    I was today watching the PS4 reveal again and even David Perry was having trouble. [GUOAYKOAI]

    [Anyway as Aaron points out, during Perry's part he spoke of how they were planning to make PS1, PS2, and PS3 games Ubiquitous and platform agnostic. Gaikai specialises in delivering gameplay through basic web browsers without the need for flash or java, Imagine Playing a full PS3 version of Journey through Facebook? So one could play PlayStation games through a laptop, or pc, or your Iphone, Android phone or any tablet one can think of.

    And you know what? I think they will be able to pull it off. How will it work on phones and tablets you ask? Well these devices already have Bluetooth, Sony could release an app and some drivers to allow one to Pair Dualshock 3 controller via Bluetooth. Or release a BT dongle and bespoke drivers for PCs and Laptops.] Off topic slightly.



    So with that said, let's crack on with more suggestions.

    PlayNow

    PlayGames

    Play iT!

    PSeverywhere

    PSCloud Services

    PlayCLoud

    Cloudsource

    PlayCrowd

    CloudPlay

    FireCLoud

    Lightning

    CloudVolt

    I'm sure they will rename it. I'm sure PS Cloud will probably be the name.

    Play Now, CloudPlay, and Play iT! sound pretty good. It's interesting how cloud services are taking off. It still actually don't understand much of how cloud services work. I always thought cloud computing was like that protein folding app.

    Gaikai is basically all taking place in a data centre. Gaikai Customers receive a compressed high quality low latency video stream. Only data being uploaded is the player's interaction with the controller.


    It's totally different to Microsoft's version of "Da infinite CLoudz" who claim that massive actual game data is uploaded to be processed then sent back to the XBone assist the CPU+GPU multiplying it's power. This is a ridiculous claim as shown by the recent digital foundry article.

    Exactly. It isn't JUST Playstation games, it's PC as well. They may give it a new name if it doesn't have a big enough brand/mindshare on it's own already but even if they do, I doubt they'd name it so that it was Playstation centric or otherwise tied to the Playstation that way. Maybe something like "Digital Direct" or "On Live" (wait, MS has that, don't they?).

    All you have to decide is what to do with the time give to you....

    Are you sure? You can't use Gaikai for PC any more as far as I can tell

    They should rebrand, but whatever it is, I hope they don't use the word Cloud.

    Lol that works, or we can go up one more level and call it PlayStation Mesosphere. Keep a nice buffer from the "cloud." I still have no clue where this cloud stuff came from. Everyone seems to be throwing it around tho

    I don't think it'll have a name and just be part of the PlayStation Network
