Gaikai Could Turn Android Into The Next Playstation 3

Brad:

Cloud gaming on Android looks pretty sweet, eh? OnLive looks fantastic over the Wi-Fi connection and proves how fantastic cloud gaming can be in the not so far future. That said, another cloud gaming service, Gaiaki, was recently acquired by Sony. As analysts expect, Sony is going to take the cloud gaming service to the next level. It’s currently only available for PC browsers (i.e. Firefox, Chrome), an Android client is on its way and will hopefully be released soon. Not only that, but Sony has promised to make it an exception gaming platform. Exceptional? If Sony’s track record says anything, it’s going to be fantastic.

What makes Gaikai that special though? It essentially does the same thing as OnLive. The first thing you’ll notice is it’s speed. It takes upon the power of the Olympians (NVIDIA’s GeForce Grid Technology) and moves the service completely beyond what OnLive can do right now. Not only that, but the faster the game is able to stream to you, the more it feels like your everyday console. Sure, controls make the screen a bit cramped on a phone, but imagine loading this up on your tablet! In my time of playing Starcraft 2 competitively, I’ve come to realized that the performance and speed of the game can very well be a life or death situation. Thus, Gaikai sounds fantastic. (Android, Gaikai, PS3, Tech)

I can see a future where Sony could become a service provider to any device and people wont require dedicated Sony consoles anymore....PSN & Live will eventually bring in more revenue than packaged games and consoles combined.

....I can see MS following this trend, if not setting it. It may not happen overnight...but I fear it will happen :(

Gaikai works really well. Just last week I was playing this airplane game with online mutiplayer through Internet Explorer with no lag on 3mb dsl. Sony's really on to something here with Gaikai.
