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

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.

We actually need another info on how Sony choose working with Microsoft instead of Amazon and other company. Hell even Google is not ot of the question either. All of the cloud company are great , it's still mind boggling how this partnership came and why Microsoft Azure?

Likely price and capacity, plus just because Microsoft and Sony compete in one market, doesn't mean they can't work together in another.

Plus Microsoft has been working towards leveraging cloud in the console space, so they tend to have an experience-leg up over Google and Amazon in that aspect...

Microsoft might also have a ton of servers in geographical locations where Sony's customer bases are concentrated.

Need more information at either rate, which you are right about.

Sony: Walking like usual
Microsoft: (tsundere face)
Sony: So what?? hold my hand , don't be ashamed
Microsoft: Baka!! Baka!! (while holding Sony hand)

Nintendo: Nani the fuck !?

Man, that scene lol



I imagine Sony has purchased Microsoft's OS in the past and a lot of Sony's computers run on Windows.



It was only a matter of time. Sony needs a Cloud based network to compete with the big fish like Google etc.
Not sure why everyone is surprised about this as MS and Sony have worked together many times in the past since MS use to supply Sony Windows on Sony PCs etc.

Sony doesn't want to get left behind in cloud gaming wars since PSnow is lacking severly behind and would lose to both xcloud and and stadia? Though, with this announcement Sony cloud gaming should also do 4k with a with a more stable internet me thinks? Has anyone played Psnow on PS4? I heard theres lag during gameplay with those PS3 games on Psnow IDK? Stadia showed a stable demostration of there games playing in 4k no lag I think?

Perhaps both companies are so scared of Google that they decided to team up.

It's like every anime plot, all race and country must unite to prepare for even bigger threat which is a powerful alien "Google Stadia"  

In Dragon Ball z when Raditz showed up Goku and Piccolo had no choice but to team up. Piccolo said it was just a temporary partnership this one time then back to enemies right after but, we know how that went.



Even Sony is joining the MS Train!!!
Welcome aboard!



Pocky Lover Boy!

Yeah. Piccolo ended up killing Goku.

Make sense.
