Gaikai has just revealed that they’ll be holding a special event at this year’s E3. According to the company’s invitation, Gaikai has major announcements for E3, which have the potential to change the future of video games, the game consoles and the way in which we play. Gaikai is well known for its cloud gaming services and right now, a lot of PC gamers can enjoy triple-A titles – like The Witcher 2, The Darkness II, Mass Effect 3, and Crysis 2 – via their browsers.
Earlier yesterday, there was also a rumor that Sony would enter cloud gaming. According to the rumor, a partnership deal between PlayStation and a leading cloud gaming service would be announced at this year’s E3. It was said that the leading cloud gaming service could either be OnLive or Gaikai. This announcement is said to be made during Sony’s conference on June 4.
Now let’s take a closer look at Gaikai’s invitation. Gaikai states that they have ‘something’ with the potential to change the future of console games. Gaikai is known for its cloud gaming service. And the earlier Sony rumor mentioned Gaikai. Put these things together and we can safely assume that Sony will indeed announce their cloud gaming plans during their conference.
That, or Gaikai has other cloud gaming plans of their own that will be unveiled in E3. Imagine if Gaikai could offer console cloud gaming, with cross-platform between PCs and consoles. Now THAT would be something ground-breaking. It’s doubtful but one can only hope, right? Either way, Gaikai’s E3 announcement is something that got us really excited and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us!
