Sony Is Testing A Cloud Gaming Service Right Now

Thanks to an anonymous source, it appears we now have visual proof that Sony is testing their long awaited cloud gaming service with select persons today, under the rather clearly named “Cloud Gaming Test”. (Dev, Industry, PS4, Sony, Tech)

Sony always have it, but they know we are smart and know what it is cloud is. But MS just thinks their fans are dumb a$$es, so they make up $h!t and exaggerates everything, "Our cloud is like skynet it has 30000000000 servers(which turn out to be mostly digital servers). And it makes Matrix graphics.

And you guys choose to remain ignorant.

nukeitall  +   560d ago

"The DIFFERENCE is that this is something that has been proven to work before."

You neglect to include that streaming games has resulted in two businesses that has essentially failed, OnLive and Gakai.

If you think the difference between 1080p and 720p is significant, what do you think will happen when that same game has heavy compression artifacts, inconsistent input and laggy experience?

"While claims of increasing the power of the Xbox One, better graphics, etc, have not."

Incorrect! Nvidia has shown that cloud based light rendering is possible:



That said, increasing graphics is not important to me personally. It is more the other uses, like Forza 5's AI, dedicated and stable servers for online play, and seamless experiences.

If graphics was important, I would have focused on PC a long time ago. Console even by today newest generation is subpar compared to even a modes PC today.

Title: "A Cloud Gaming Service"

It's Gaikai...

...so why are some people here thinking that it's Sony doing the same thing Microsoft is with the cloud? Where they said it boosts Xbox One's specs by "the equivalent of three Xbox Ones" and idiots still believe in that.

What I find laughable is that it's clearly in the title and Sony already said that their cloud gaming service is Gaikai.

If you're not going to read the article, then read the title carefully next time.



"You neglect to include that streaming games has resulted in two businesses that has essentially failed, OnLive and Gakai."

And you neglect to do the research and realize that out of the two, Gaikai has been very successful.

Partnerships included:

Limelight Networks
Video Games Blogger
Bigfoot Networks
The Escapist
CD Projekt
Level 3 Communications
Best Buy
LG Electronics
Green Man Gaming
Warner Bros.
Meteor Entertainment
En Masse

Till Sony acquired them in June, 2012.

And before that, in one year, from 2010 to 2011, they had quickly gathered up 10+ million active monthly users.


Why do you think Sony chose Gaikai over OnLive? It was a much better service, they accomplished more in less time than OnLive with no record of layoffs.


"what do you think will happen when that same game has heavy compression artifacts, inconsistent input and laggy experience?

Doesn't look like none of that was happening when Gaikai was streaming Hawken.


Or Spore, Mario Kart 64, and so on.


And all you had to do is do some research to uncover the facts, but it's cool, there's a lot of blind people like you on here and it's always funny to read their comments.

Did you seriously just use an N64 game as an example of how game streaming can work without compression?

So you guys will be happy playing your ps3 games streamed in glorious 480i?

I'm very sorry, but game streaming just isn't possible YET without noticeable issues.

Every single button press has to be sent to the server, and then the video response to that button press streamed back to you. I don't care if you have google fiber, there will be latency there.

I'm not saying it will be unplayable. Frankly I don't know.

I'm just saying that I PERSONALLY wouldn't want to play like that with constant lag on every single game. But this service isn't designed for somebody like me anyway, I still have my old consoles and games.
Flames76  +   560d ago
you seem slow
mikeslemonade  +   560d ago
The point is there's an option. If I am cheap, which I am, then there will be games I will not mind to play over a stream. If you read gamer reviews about these streams, they say it's playable. Imagine playing COD on dedicated servers, which someone would hard-pressed to find any noticeable latency.

I'm not gonna play online competitive gaming with the service. Although you could and it still would be playable. I'm actually picky about my specs, but I know a game like Tomb Raider or Last of Us would work more than fine on Gaikai.

And also I would challange you or a friend who is also a nonbeliever to have a blind-test on two different games(one that is off-disc and one that is off-stream). You guys probaly would have a hard time telling which one is off-stream and which one isn't.

Kryptix  +   560d ago

"Did you seriously just use an N64 game as an example of how game streaming can work without compression?"

It was included in the video so I mentioned it. Was I supposed to download the video, cut that piece out, reupload it to YouTube and get flagged by ContentID? lol Did you wanted me to not mention it at all and look like I was hiding something? Anyway, Spore and the last game (Need for Speed: Pro Street) shown in that video looked good with video compression not having major noticeable effects and Hawken did, too. And those two videos are from 2009 and 2012 so most likely improvements were made.

Also, I never said it wasn't going to have video compression, I said it "doesn't look like none of that was happening" because Gaikai is handling the problems better than any other streaming service. And from watching the 2 videos, it looks like the coding for streaming compressed video is of very high quality. Explaining why Gaikai is not just the fastest growing, but a leading cloud gaming service.


"So you guys will be happy playing your ps3 games streamed in glorious 480i?"


According to this Digital Foundry article from 2012 I posted above, Gaikai sacrifices 60fps for 30fps but in return gives a much better picture closely resembling 720p. Remember though, a lot of PS3 games run natively at 720p, 30fps like Uncharted 2, GTA V, and The Last of Us.

"video quality is much more solid with Gaikai - in fast-paced scenes with lots of complex scenery, detail is maintained, and despite there being some visible artifacts on show at times, we really get the impression that we are looking at something closer to a native high definition presentation." -From article


"Every single button press has to be sent to the server, and then the video response to that button press streamed back to you. I don't care if you have google fiber, there will be latency there."

According to the same article I posted above:

"Other latency analyses were revealing. Gaikai handles Bulletstorm rather well, sometimes even matching the 133ms input lag of the Xbox 360 - an astonishing achievement. However, with anything up to 50ms in variance between our Crysis 2 readings, the experience was too inconsistent to be considered an enjoyable, playable experience." -From article

Not hiding anything, but it looks like Gaikai will be able to maintain close to the input lag of the Xbox 360 in certain games.


Well, of course playing on the older systems will work much better but like mikeslemonade said, the option is there...not only is it there but it's working better than expected at very playable levels.

I'll be playing older games on my PS3, but I think it's great for people that never bought a PS3, PS2, and PS1. PS2 and PS1 will work flawlessly on Gaikai, but the PS3 games will still run at acceptable standards.

Thanks for replying since you gave me the chance of explaining how it's going to work out once Gaikai finally releases by pointing out potential problems.


Thanks man, just laying down the facts like usual.

@All So first we have Sony testing Giakai Streaming, about time too. Then we will have MS testing Rio Streaming so both new gens will have backwards compatibility streaming services.

That sounds like a win-win for all concerned.

So MS are running cloud compute along with dedicated servers for the whole xbox live ecosystem. Cool. The whole thing is running on the Azure cloud infrastructure so it's pretty much all cloud tech.

Not sure about Sony's set up, they been as communicative as Helen Keller... Well I'm sure it'll all come out sooner or later.

Point is both companies are pretty much doing the same thing but in different ways.

So chill everyone, there is no need to resort to name calling and self gratification.

Sony does not provide dedicated servers. With their firs party title killzone they did had 'dedicated' servers which weren't 'true'dedicated servers.
Developpers for the ps4 will need to decide if they want to pay for dedicated servers.
Third parties might even decide to use/pay for azure services to provide dedicated server for the ps4, other possible choices for server support include amazone and google.

I hope Sony will make a deal with amazone or google so that can also offer free dedicated servers.

OCEANGROWNKUSH  +   561d ago
To "put in" backward compatibility they would have needed to "put in" the cell processor among other things inside the PS4 causing the price to skyrocket... Remember the PS3 launch? The first PS3's were B/C, and to achieve that had the PS2's emotion engine installed in every PS3, which was a factor in the sky high pricing, they tried to emulate this later via software but there's a list of ps2 games and their problems on wiki, wasn't the greatest thing...

Putting a cell processor in a PS4 would have likely caused the console to be at $100 more if not more than that, Im fine playing my PS3 games on one of the three ps3 consoles in my household. How hard is it to play the old system?? I still play my NES but i guess thats just me huh.

Sony is putting relatively new games on PS+ so whatever. If some old PS3 game I want comes up that I missed, charge me for it when I buy it. At times I feel like am ripping Sony off with PS+

DigitalRaptor  +   560d ago
How about you elaborate on that "HUGE gap"? Sadly, I don't think you can. Because again, it's all been hot air from Microsoft in regards to the cloud. They said some marketing stuff about it to get you excited prior to the launch (just like Sony did). And the same hot air is being regurgitated by people like you.

What Gaikai is, is completely different to what Microsoft is trying to do, but hasn't done yet.... but they will.... I'm sure. Because you can tell us all about it with your vast knowledge of Microsoft's cloud services that will deem Sony, the PS4, its games, and its network irrelevant.

I'm also sure you didn't realise that Sony was working with Gaikai months to years before its acquisition in July 2012? Of course you didn't, you're an Xbot. Did you not also notice that this was underway before Microsoft even announced any of their large scale Azure services to Xbox? Of course you didn't, you're an Xbot.

I'm sure you also didn't realise that PlayStation has also been working for YEARS with RackSpace, and has recently closed a deal with them as an "enterprise level customer" to deploy OpenStack private dedicated cloud servers, to compliment their already large focus on game streaming with Gaikai?
http://www.playstationlifes... http://www.youtube.com/watc... of course you didn't, you're an Xbot.

Dumb. As. Fcck.

What the xbox does cloud computing. Ps4 does cloud streaming. Learn the difference or shut up. Also Sony have been using the cloud for storing saves online on the ps3 for ages.
