Gaikai cloud gaming could impact all of Sony, says David Perry

Gaikai could be used across all of Sony, according to founder David Perry.

While it is not yet clear how the cloud gaming service - which was acquired by the electronics giant earlier this month - will be used, it could "impact" all of the company.

"Well, it depends how Sony decides to make use of the tech, but if nothing else, it just adds another cool capability for PlayStation gamers," Perry said.

"Again, it's too early for us to even begin to speculate how Sony will use it, because we haven't had that discussion, but there's going to be probably 50 brainstorming meetings.

"It's a big company with a lot of departments and a lot of people are going to want to talk about this, because it's an ecosystem that's… the company just doesn't do one thing, it's got a lot of component pieces. Blu-ray players, TVs, mobile phones - I think cloud gaming can impact all of it.

"It's going to be in a lot of meetings and a lot of discussion over the next few months."... (David Perry, Gaikai, Next-Gen, PS Vita, PS3, Sony, Tech)

David Perry of Shiny Entertainment developers of Earthworm Jim, Wild9 and MDK, it was a fantastic game.

I'd exchange Cool Spot (or the even better Alladin ) and Sacrifice with Wild9 . Cool spot was the beginning of his masterpiece platform series , and sacrifice was the very last innovative RTS .

Dave wasnt part of Shiny when they made MDK, so i doubt he'd have too much interest in working on that

my friend, David Perry founded Shiny Entertainment back in 1993 and MDK was made in 1997.

I assume with the Gaikai acquisition their focus is mainly on the gaming potential and also adding it to t.v.'s but the capabilities seem endless.

hopefully is gonna be part of playstation plus service, im not paying more for cloud gaming.

It could no doubt but a hardware company trying to make that much of a software savy move will be rather interesting.

I think the main focus will be TV support as their TV division bleeds money very badly and then trickle down to other markets such as their phones and ect.

It will definitely be integrated in all their electronic products that support it at some point, but I'm pretty sure we'll start seeing the use of this service before they are done with the ps3 this generation.

As long as the cloud gaming remains an OPTION & not forced, i think its a great idea for 3rd party games that i dont care to own but want to play.. 1st party AAA titles i will buy physical copies of
