Sony Corp. is planning to offer a one-of-a-kind gaming experience by streamlining games to the Internet-connected devices.
Recently, the company announced a deal worth $380 million to acquire Gaikai Inc.- a company renowned to run games on servers. Primarily, the technology allows the gaming enthusiasts participate in fast-action, graphically elegant titles via a web browser- eliminating the need to buy hardware with graphics circuitry or install exclusive gaming software. Merely, the players can simply partake in their favorite titles right on their laptops, smartphones, tabs, and even some compatible televisions.
Sony’s latest acquisition is chiefly to make an identity in the world of burgeoning technology, known as cloud gaming.
Up until now there are only a few prominent competitors in the market, including OnLive Inc., Calif., and an Aliso Viejo amongst others.
