Forums - Sony Discussion - E3 2012 Rumor: IS Sony Partnering up with a leading cloud gaming service?

Sony’s first-party effort will revolve around at least two largely unknown core products and Vita. The two titles are likely to generate a great deal of excitement. Also expect Sony to attempt to play a strong “Vita isn’t dead” card. Big core games on the small screen will be a focus for Sony this year, but, again, expect solidity rather than megatonnage. You may well be blown away by what’s on show, but it’s doubtful you’re going to be too shocked by any of the announcements.

Apart from the partnership deal between PlayStation and a leading cloud gaming service, obviously.

Hey, if it's cloud gaming like OnLive, you can stream everything to your Vita. Ps3/PS4 games included.

Just speculation though..right



No one cares. 75% of people don't have fast enough internet speeds to use these cloud services.(I'm one of them)

Wonder if this will be something less interesting... like access to streamed demos... or something... more interesting.

Would be quite an interesting take if Sony decided to allow their hardware to be used as a general access box for Onlive or Gaikai (spelling?).



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

If you think so. My smartphone was running Darksiders on Onlive over 3G.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

its actually kind of smart if you think about it.......using cloud gaming they could be releasing next gen game this year, way before the competition... but of course they will still have a PS4 but this could buy them alot more time and its a huge selling point for the ps3, playing next gen games on current hardware it doesnt get any better then that

Doubtfull You dont care, thats fine, but I doubt that only 25% of gamers would have access to this. Lets be honest, gamers in general tend to select their internet provider, so they get the best connection possible. So for the crowd they would aim, I would say that close to 90% would have fast enough nety speed for this to be a possibility
