What Sony’s Gaikai Acquisition Means for You

Platformnation: If you missed the news, Sony bought out cloud-based gaming company Gaikai yesterday for a cool $380 million (and dropped OnLive Blu-ray support today). That’s a solid chunk below the $500 million some folks were throwing around last week, but still not bad for a company that seems in primary competition with OnLive for a market that seems mostly nonexistent. SCE president and group CEO Andrew House neglected to go any deeper in the press release than combining Gaikai and Sony’s various gaming platforms to create what he hopes will be “unparalleled cloud entertainment experiences” with “content ranging from immersive core games with rich graphics to casual content anytime, anywhere.” (Gaikai, PS Vita, PS3, Sony)
