PlayStation Cloud Services Could Release On PC, Tablets & Mobile

A Cloudy future.

The Cloud is a feature that is something that both Sony and Microsoft are focusing on for their next consoles, with streaming games being a major focal point. There is already some of the infrastructure in place, with cloud saves and cross platform gaming.

It appears that Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida sees a future where PlayStation’s cloud and streaming services, possibly including Gaikai, may eventually be available to access through PCs, tablets, and mobile phones.

“Speaking of the ultimate goal, we would like to deliver PlayStation games to all devices. So we’re considering various things like PC, TVs, Blu-ray players, smartphones and tablets. We hope to continue to expand not only to Sony devices, but even to devices other than Sony’s. This is still being studied.”

This kind of future is still a while off with Sony most likely waiting to see how Gaikai is received before implementing more concrete plans, but it’d definitely bean interesting step forward by the company. At the moment the cloud streaming industry hasn’t truly taken off, with the likes of  OnLive not really able to capitalise on the market.

    Good thing I’ve ordered a new Sony smartphone. It’s going to get interesting seeing where the cloud takes us. I believe that soon all of Sonys handheld devices and a few select others will work just like a Vita TV when it comes to streaming. We can already connect Dualshocks.

      I got the new Sony Z1 on Saturday and it’s really good. It’s a big bugger but light as a feather.

    I think we’ll need much faster internet speeds before mobile cloud gaming takes off. 4G would handle it but it’s only available in a few places so far.
