Sony & Microsoft Announce Partnership For Gaming & Cloud Services

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sony & Microsoft Announce Partnership For Gaming & Cloud Services

I am not sure if MS is worried about Stadia compared to their own initiative. Why Google is a big boy in the Cloud services space they are not even third but forth while MS is #2 and Amazon still the king. MS has been working longer in this space and they have also worked longer on implementing their gaming services to Azure. If anything this is just a mutual agreement where MS can leverage Sony tech savvy especially if you think about their AR/VR devices and getting their AI system in place to work better with their hardware while Sony can definitely leverage MS expertise in their Cloud infrastructure and the work they have progress implementing gaming services with Azure.

Well I really don't like this either way because Cloud Gaming takes away the consumers' ownership of their games.

I don't wanna play certain games, only for them to be unavailable a few years later because the company discontinued it's service.



Some days I just blow up.

Rumors between Nintendo and Microsoft and now this...

"cartel
noun [ C ] UK ​ /kɑːˈtel/ US ​ /kɑːrˈtel/

a group of similar independent companies who join together to control prices and limit competition"

Just saying

Wow, so Sony bent the knee when it comes to the cloud. Isn’t there new leadership at Sony? Seems they’re going through an overhaul of some dated stances on things. 

Hope this means improved PSN speeds and PS Now performance.

Wow Microsoft allowed Sony to used their Azure server , When it comes to the cloud Microsoft bent the knee to money. 

If someone pays you to use your stuff that doesn't make you bending the knee.

It's not Sony Playstation working with Microsoft Xbox.

It's Sony Corp making projects, research and collaboration on Microsoft Azure. This is not crazy and doesn't mean they'll be working on game titles development stuff together.

This actually makes allot of sense for Sony... Rather than invest Billions in building-out an expensive cloud service that will only be used by their gaming division... Leverage one of the big Three's (Google, Amazon, Microsoft) efforts instead who have done the hard work.

The cloud isn't getting any smaller... Plus this should relieve some pressures on their slower Playstation Network too.

Yes.



PLAYING: Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4), For Honor (PS4)

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

I'd say this is very interesting news

Good, but I still don't trust Cloud gaming and I may never trust it.

Providing services for money is bending the knee?

Lets say at a minimum this is simply MS providing online services for Sony. That would make this the least surprising and least interesting relationship between MS and Sony. Because that's a big part of what MS does.
