Rumors about Sony’s new console aren’t short these days. Some people claim that the console has been under production from 2010. Sony itself has been constantly marketing its home console with the marketing term ‘The Future Is Here’. Does that mean there will be no PlayStation 4? We have gathered some facts that provide us an insight over this argument.
Recent leak of FCC filing revealed that Sony is releasing a new model for its PlayStation 3. Apparently, the new model will be slimmer and thinner than the rest of the models. Could Sony be including new features on the PlayStation 3 model? Let’s see what else Sony has been up to.
According to recent news, Sony has already acquired the cloud based gaming service Gaikai for $380 million. If it was ever planning on releasing a new console, why would it be spending so much on the current generation of gaming?
For those who do not know about Gaikai, it’s a cloud based video gaming streaming service that allows you to stream and play your favorite games. Gaikai offers its services to PC, TVs and even media players that can support the software.
The games are streamed via your internet connection and do not require you to have a powerful PC to play the next generation games. Gaikai has maintained a strong standing in the cloud gaming industry by offering the fastest, lowest latency and lag free cloud gaming service.
Everything you do while playing a game on Gaikai is saved on the servers itself, so you never really have to update your game or worry about saved content. Tons of highly quality games are available on the service and these games will soon be available for play directly from your PlayStation 3 console.
The great thing about this new service on PlayStation 3 is that now you will be able to play all your favorite games that never made it to the PlayStation 3 and are only available for PC. Some games like TERA, Witcher 2, Crusader Kings and a lot more are titles that never made it to the PS3.
