Sony Acquires Cloud Gaming Company Gaikai for $380M
Here’s a surprising move, Sony has just announced a finalized agreement to acquire cloud gaming service Gaikai for a whopping $380Million USD.
With this acquisition, SCE will establish a cloud service and expand its network business by taking full advantage of Gaikai’s revolutionary technology and infrastructure including data centers servicing dozens of countries and key partners around the world.
Personally I still prefer the service of OnLive, but this is a huge step toward acknowledging the power of Cloud Gaming services. I can’t help but expect an upcoming revision of Sony televisions and BluRay players with Gaikai support integrated.
