"The future looks pretty bright for Gaikai. Our growing team is working on a number of exciting initiatives that we can't wait to unveil. We can't share the details now, but we will soon."

Wow, I can't wait to see where Sony takes Gaikai. Pumped.

They are remaining tight-lipped about what they are working on- it is the usual vague marketing spiel for now- nothing tangible.

I suspect that they will only unveil their goods for the PS4 or E3 at the earliest. Time will tell.

"I came back from vacation in the Bahamas and found that my name had been written over in Black Sharpie on my parking space. It said Kevin Butler, VP of infinity and Beyond. i thought someone was playing a joke on me but when my key didnt work in the lock...WTH is going on around here?

So I bumped into Larry outside the building. He is (or was) the handy man and i asked him what happened while i was gone. He told me he got promoted to head of research in cloud development. i was like WHAT?!?!? and he said, yeah Sony bought us and they have big plans for us moving forward.

This is being told to me by the same guy that washed his boots off in the fountain after there was a serious overflow in the john. I had to get more info on this. turns out, my company was sold right out from under me. Guess my deal with onlive didnt take to well with the other investors so they sold it right from under me.

I lost my company, lost my office and lost my parking space. If I tell my wife I will probably lose her too. I know the mistress wont be very happy about it."

I don't know why they even waste time on this.

Until something is shown, no one can say anything, this is not good or bad, it's nothing yet, waiting for something coming out of this acquistion in first place before getting all hyped out of nothing.

How could anybody 'disagree' with you just for being excited about something? lol well, i support your excitement and i will join with you in looking forward to seeing what comes of the Sony/Gaikai collaboration.

and now I got 2 'disagrees' haha I wish you would comment and tell me why you disagree, or at least just admit to trollin.

jd6661893d ago

Some people click on stories just to disagree!! Numpties!!

tiffac0081892d ago

Don't worry about the disagrees, it happens to all of us. Its just the way it is ^^

awesomeperson1892d ago

Well they're disagreeing with him, because they disagree its exciting news D: Also just trolls, welcome to N4G ;)

For example, I'll most likely get a number of disagrees on this comment.

On topic, I really want to know where this will go :D

andibandit1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

I disagreed, not because im not equally excited, but to quote that interview, which was full of vagueness and ambiguity, and let that be the springboard for ones excitement, is just fooling yourself.

in my eyes the reason for Dante112's excitement is about as logical as the following dialogue.

Press: "Now that Sony Computer Entertainment has acquired you, what will happen to Gaikai?"

Gaikai: "No Comment"

Dante112: "WOOOOOW!, IM SO PUMPED!!"

Gaikai would have answered exactly the same no matter who purchased them. The problem is until the world and this includes the US whos still not even close to having a infrastructure capable of makeing this a success gets built up there is plenty of time for many other major breakthroughs and competition to be built as well. With sonys financial woes this makes sense for them to buy into the tech then create it themselves but the big question still remains is when many years down the road the internet does develop enough to handle widespread streaming across the world will Gaikai still be a main player? One thing the competition does have is time and financial means to make this accusition become a bad decision. Only time will tell.

Sony has positioned itself in a good position against Apple TV and Microsoft when it sees Cloud gaming catching up

Gaikai alone guarantees Sony's foot inside the arena of next generation of all kinds of gaming regardless of platform

7th Level has an interesting explanation to cloud gaming

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

Every game you buy on ps4 will be streamed on the go to psVita watch..

Also I think tyhey will be more ps/pc titles with mmos like planetside 2.

wastedcells1892d ago

Future looks bright for gamers...

Bigpappy1892d ago

So you guy think cloud gaming will be a good move for gamers? I never cared for it and still don't see how it helps gamers. I like owning what I pay for and playing offline. But that's just me.

well as a playstation 3 and vita fan im pretty excited but i think they will unveil the platform meaning on the ps4 unveil press conference.

-Mika-1893d ago

I can't wait for the PS4. I hope sony announces it soon.

SandWitch1893d ago

It should be announced soon. I would say Q1 2013 might be the time

Then pricing and info at E3 2013

Then 2013 holiday - 2014 spring release

According to both Avast and Firefox, PS3center contains an embedded malware frame from

Totally dodgy.

Edit - it doesn't always show up. I think it's being served up by the adserving scripts.

SandwichHammock1893d ago

I think this might have something to do with PlaystationMobile and Gaikai being incorporated into it to allow for PS3 title streaming to any PlaystationMobile certified device. I might be way off, or not.

The interesting thing that this brings up, is if this is a sign of how long the current offering from Sony is being positioned to compete. I've been of long opinion, that the next Sony box will drop in the second half of 2014. Would something like the aforementioned PlaystationMobile/Gaikai possibility suggest we would have to wait longer? I hope not. But don't be surprised if you don't hear a peep about PS"4" at the next E3.

chasegarcia1893d ago (Edited 1893d ago )

blah blah blah pr talk. I learned nothing from this article.

GribbleGrunger1893d ago

When it's second hand news it's not official, when it's official news it's PR!? You, sir, are a genius
