Gaikai helps it buy the stairway to heaven 


Troubled computer outfit Sony has bought the cloud based gaming company Gaikai for $380 million.

Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment said that the acquisition, will mean that Sony gets a cloud of its own to play with. By combining Gaikai's resources including its technological strength and engineering talent with SCE's extensive game platform knowledge and experience, SCE will provide users with unparalleled cloud entertainment, he said.

However it might go a long way to solving the problems that Sony has had delivering its games networks to punters.  The Sony PS3 Network has been bugged by hackers and security problems. House failed to mention that.  He just talked about people instantly enjoying a broad array of content ranging from immersive core games with rich graphics. We thought that they could do that now.

David Perry, CEO of Gaikai said that his company would help Sony to grow its ecosystem. Using the cloud apparently helps empower developers with new capabilities.
