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? 

Its called business. There's nothing mind boggling about it

I wondering with this partnership, how will azure help PSnow in it's current state ? Will Sony shut it down then relaunch it the next day as 4k and extremely stable with little latency or will azure take over and replace psnow ? With Sony I'm not sure if it's wise to have 2 streaming services if azure the better for it's streaming and psnow lacking ? Heh, I'm abit curious how this turns? ^^

I just want to know how Sony ended with Microsoft and why Microsoft agree , and what else does both gained beside the one that mentioned . From all possibilities and outcome , Microsoft could just reject because they trying to release their own cloud gaming service.

Because it's a big news, and considered as an event that affecting gaming era and history, as simple gamer, observer, gaming veteran,    i just curious. 



Basically this ;)

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 !?

Can you translate that for me? If you don't mind.

in a short, it's like an anime about love parody, on how Microsoft  falling in love with Sony But Microsoft is a bit shy and acted like Microsoft hate Sony.

We need a triforce gif and picture that include Nintendo . So Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo  inside triangle 



I'm guessing the PSnow we have right now has trouble with something like Uncharted 4 ? Which is why it's not on PSnow currently and azure carries the horsepower with little latency ? I'm guessing the reason Sony went with Microsoft was because it's cheaper than stadia service and Microsoft showed them a demo of azure power in one of there meetings and Sony was impressed ? or maybe Sony get's a hefty sum of money for azure service for it's PSnow IDK? Maybe Sony went to Google but they said Sony pays 2x for stadia royalties ^^

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.

So Piccolo is Xbox because he's green? That's racist.

Sony is Goku because Sony is the main character of Video gaming Industry LOL

I'd say Nintendo is Goku because everyone thinks Goku is awesome even though he loses all the time and sometimes dies. I'd say Sony is Mr. Satan. They showed up late, most people love them, and, as far as everyone knows, they are invincible.
