David Perry: There’s no deal between Sony and Gaikai
Earlier there were rumours that Sony was going to buy Gaikai, a could streaming company, to provide PS1 and PS2 backward compatibility and other things. However, this rumour was false and Gaikai boss David Perry has confirmed that there’s no such thing between them and Sony.
Gaikai have tied up with Samsung to provide cloud services on their TVs, but in spite of talking to the console companies since a very long time, it has not come to fruition.
“I wasn’t even at the Sony press conference. I was sitting in my hotel room, and I know everyone was like, ‘Are they going to announce cloud gaming?’ And I was like, ‘No, they’re not going to announce cloud gaming.’ I wasn’t even there!
“To give you my real take on it, I honestly can’t think of a future for the console companies that don’t include cloud gaming at some point. They can hold out as long as they want to, but at some point, you don’t want to be the console that can’t do this. To some extent, I expect all three of them will have this,” he revealed to Eurogamer.
