PlayStation Cloud Domains Point to a New Name for Gaikai

There’s just over 24 hours to wait for Sony’s big announcement in New York. Let’s be honest, they’ve done a remarkable job, this time around, at keeping all their major secrets wrapped up. But it seems like some little titbits of information might just be starting to show themselves.

Our favourite internet investigator, Superannuation, has uncovered a domain registration that points to the future of Gaikai. Most PlayStation fans will be aware that Gaikai is the game streaming service bought by Sony last year. It’s widely speculated that it might appear in some form in Sony’s new console but it appears that we won’t know it as the, slightly tricky-to-pronounce, Gaikai anymore.

PS-Cloud.net, PlayStation-Cloud.org and PlayStation-Cloud.com (all links to whois lookups) have all been registered to Gaikai inc., along with various other related top level domains.

There’s still no word on what it actually is but it seems like we might already know what it’s called, at least. Roll on tomorrow night, you’ll be able to see all the action streaming live right here on TSA, with our usual coverage to accompany it.

  1. Wouldn’t it be amazing if tomorrow isn’t about PS4 after all, and is just PS Cloud?

    • There would be blood.

    • Don’t dare even suggest that, I’ve got all hyped thinking it’s 100% pure PS4 lmao.

    • I’m not sure you know what amazing means. :P

    • I think it’s just going to be a troll face.

  2. Don’t understand this bit on the site profile section –

    “Find Cash Advance, Debt Consolidation and more at Playstation-Cloud.com. Get the best of Insurance or Free Credit Report, browse our section on Cell Phones or learn about Life Insurance. Playstation-Cloud.com is the site for Cash Advance.”

    • Go to the URL itself and you’ll see – it’s just a spammy holding page atm.

      • Oh right I see, I’ll take a look.

  3. Gaikai is a fun word to say out loud. Hope they keep it.

  4. Newest Evolution of PlayStation video is out. It’s about the games.

    • My heart melts at the list of games mentioned after the time spent on the Gran Turismo franchise. YouTube link here

  5. Bah humbug, oh well i suppose i’ll wait for the details but really i’m not interested in a streaming game service.
    Still, that aside i’m excited as i can possibly be for tomorrow!

  6. I’m fit to burst…..

  7. Didn’t know TSA were streaming the meeting live, I’ll be ‘tuned’ in.

  8. I wonder if they’ll still do PC games… (if they did any that weren’t on consoles) but yeah if they get this PS cloud thing going I hope that they use it for PS+’s instant game collection and defiantly demos. There’s one thing I really loathe and thats downloading vast amounts of data for shorts experiences.. and of course to be told that I’ll need triple the space for a 16GB game on a 80gig HDD.. the pain…

    Anyway.. I like the idea of cloud gaming or whatever but its just the subs like Onlive, of course the UK isn’t up for it yet but hopefully soon the bluriness is away in 2040 (when the entire middle of England is submerged in ocean….)

  9. What time are you streaming from ?
