PlayStation Cloud Web Domains Points to Sony
We are one day away from Sony unveiling what “The Future of PlayStation” means, but Internet wizard @supperannuation might have uncovered more information regarding the PlayStation 4′s ability to stream PS3 titles.
He uncovered that domain names, “playstation-cloud.com,” “playstation-cloud.org,” and “ps-cloud.net” were registered by Gaikai Inc, the company Sony ultimately purchased for their Internet streaming technology.
Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Sony was set to announce the PlayStation 4 and would unveil a streaming service that can play PlayStation 3 games on the next-generation platform.
Clearly there’s enough evidence to suggest that some type of streaming service is coming to the PlayStation 4, and will probably hear about it tomorrow during Sony’s big announcement.
It’ll be interesting to see if this PlayStation cloud service will display less lag than OnLive, a competitor of streaming video games. It’ll also be interesting to see if Sony can convince its customers that streaming services is a new and more than capable way of playing video games.
It’s definitely a hard sell to the hard-core gamer, but they could capture their casual audience, especially if the price is competitive and the lag is hardly noticeable.
