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.
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? ^^
They have 2 servers for a transition period. Theres no guarentee that ps3 games will run off the azure servers rather than the ps3 based current servers.
Its called business. There's nothing mind boggling about it
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.
I assume MS just offered a better deal than either Amazon or Google. And it doesn't make sense for MS to just reject it. Companies amd business is hardly that petty. MS would just be saying no to money.
This news is just big because it means big things for PS Now, potentially, and because others see some xbox vs ps in this, which doesn't exist for this deal.
