PostSubject: Sony: Gaikai streaming on multiple products 'absolutely in the frame'   Wed Jul 04, 2012 12:26 pm

Sony will explore the possibility of using Gaikai to stream games to a range of products beyond consoles.

While home console Gaikai integration is a dead cert, and we don't imagine Vita will be far behind if at all, in the longer term Sony could also stream games to TVs, Vaio laptops, tablets and smartphones.

PlayStation boss Andrew House told the Wall Street Journal that "Gaikai's services will be focused on Sony's game machines", but that "expanding the technology to other Sony products is absolutely within the frame".

The platform holder's $380m acquisition of Gaikai "is recognition on Sony's part that the cloud and cloud streaming technologies are going to have profound and possibly a very positive impact on not only our game business, but also in the way our consumers interact with and obtain content in general", House added (via MCV).

Earlier this week Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter told us he thought the Gaikai deal was a strategic move designed to sell more Sony TVs.

"I think that this is more related to Sony's integrated strategy, and ties into their hopes of selling more televisions," he said. "I know that Gaikai was purchased by Sony Computer Entertainment, but essentially, they provide a solution to play games without a console, so they make a lot of sense if built into Sony TVs."
