Gaikai inviting journalists to E3 event, featuring news that’ll “change the future of videogames”

Thursday, 31 May 2012 10:17 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Gaikai has sent out invites to an E3 event to journalists that’s set to include news that will “change the future of videogames”.

The invite has ramped up speculation that Gaikai is the “cloud gaming firm” reported yesterday that Sony is reportedly close to buying and announce as part of a cloud strategy at E3 next week.

OnLive has also been mentioned as another possibility for Sony.

“Gaikai has some major announcements in store for E3 that have the potential to change the future of video games, game consoles and how we play,” said the invite.

Sony’s E3 press conference happens on Monday evening at 6pm PST (Tuesday at 2am BST).

Thanks, MCV.

    It’s only brags, until they sign on the dotted line, and make it official. If Sony were to confirm what it’s been rumoured that they will, then that could be huge, and Microsoft, especially if Sony were to bring details, may find media attention tough to come by.

    Streaming games is good concept and all but until they find a way to improve the compression artifacts i’m not touching it myself, tried playing some demos off Gaikai on my PC and it looked like pretty bad.

  7. TheBlackHole

    In my experience, Gaikai looks better and runs smoother than OnLive.

    Not sure how, given the investment in infrastructure OnLive made, but Gaikai is definitely the better service.

    Since the future has not happened yet, whether or not any event in the present makes a difference to it is pure speculation. I could say that this comment will change the future of forum punditry and there would be nothing anybody could do to disprove it.

    Probably, though, it’s not true.

  9. DarkElfa

    Unless the CEO whips his dick out on stage during the event, nothing will ever change.

    If you think what I’m saying isn’t true, imagine how game changing it would have been during the recent Tim Cook interview if he had just whipped it on out in the middle. Sure, Angels would have screamed and babies cried but it would have been game changing nonetheless.

    If you think what I’ve said breaks some VG247 rule, then I was speaking metaphorically.

    I really don’t like Gaikai.

    But it is the Tech that is important, and prolly more importantly how it gets used. If the only thing Sony does it use it for Demos, or streaming old PS games on PS4 or Vita then the whole thing is a waste and won’t matter one bit in the grand scheme of things.

    However if Sony can replace future BR/retail releases with Gaikai that is indeed a game changer. Lets say Sony can put out high end PC level games and Stream them to your current PS3… Sony won’t need a PS4. And nether will we. Yet its games would have the ability to be on par and even ahead of anything that MS will be able to do on its Next Box.

    With a few quality updates, the PS3 could be a killer system to own for the coming generation(and beyond). It would need better voice chat/comunication. Would been a better browser. Full mouse and Keyboard support. And that would be about it.

    Imagine next year Next Box launches with three SKUs ranging from 450usd to 750usd, and yet your current PS3 can play all of the Multiplat games already. And can continue to do so as the generation moves forward. Something on that level would change gaming forever. Console hardware holds games back. Been doing it for generations. It is just a fact. Remove that leash … could be a whole new ball game.

    I know some of you folks have horrible ISPs. But you need to understand that you don’t represent the whole picture. And ISP speed will continue to grow. And something like cloud gaming is going to have a transition period. No way Sony goes all cloud in a matter of a year or two. Look at Netflix. People scoffed at that too. The only thing that holds Netflix back is liscencing(studios want more money now that they understand its impact). I doubt that will happen to a games service if that service is owned and opperated by the people that own the rights to said liscences to begin with. That obsticale is removed, mostly.

    What will matter the most is how Sony uses it and what their biz model is. If no thrid party pubs want to get onboard with them, they will be very limited. But if they put together a deal/package that makes them money. MS might wanna take a good hard look at OnLive.

    #12 3 years ago
  13. DeyDoDoughDontDeyDough

    @12

    All of which is fair enough, but you’re not taking account of latency and that current internet infrastructure cannot provide anything even remotely comparable to the local experience, only something which looks a bit like it. Heavily compressed, muddy images (especially when moving fast) and notable latency. Basically, by compare, it sucks.

    Most experts that have commented on the future of streaming gaming concur around the 15-20 year mark before internet infrastructure is at it basest level at a bandwidth that could provide a comparable experience.

    It may be the future, but it’s not a future of the next decade; the decade in which the next Xbox will exist. Microsoft has nothing at all to worry about. If Sony do this instead of releasing a PS4, Microsoft will be embracing a great deal of them as new customers.

  19. OlderGamer

    @D6 I use OnLive. And it works good. When it first launched some of the games were muddy and there were some lag spikes. I don’t experience that problem anymore. I just have standard Cable. Nothing turbo or super fast. I don’t have extra bandwidth.

    Obviously experiences will vary. And if anyone intends to offer streaming, there is going to be a large section of the market that can’t take advantage of it. But again, look at Netflix. There is a large section of the world that can’t Netflix, and yet the services does extremly well.

    Best to just wait and see what Sony has in mind.

    My guess would be nothing much. Prolly looking at demos. And at most looking at a back libary of Sony games that could be streamed to Vita and PS4. I doubt Sony will make a move much bigger then that. Could be wrong of course.

    I think there is a lot to go into something like this. Sony Corps monitary health for one thing. A bad PS4 could really hurt the company. I think the video game climate has changed, like it or not the Wii(and the emerging and expanding casual games market) has greatly impacted the industry. MS is a power player unlike last gen. The handheld dominance in JPN. The growth of the PC market. Whats Apple going to do? Sony might feel, going foward, that their focus needs to change. They might not see a space for themself at the table. They might feel threatend. So they could be thinking about taking things in a new direction.

    Or it could be completly crap and mean absolutly nothing.

    lol Looks like you’ve been trying hard to find *your own* truth. But it always falls onto those same “Europe & secondary markets” outdoing the mighty Microsoft home base. Still, you’ll try to wiggle like the dishonest worm you are.

    You might as well try to save some face by admitting you were wrong. The fastest Internet speeds are where the PS3 sells the most (Asian & Europe). Just come clean about your fail trolling.

  33. Da Man

    Really? That statement encompasses potential Sony customers out of the residents having decent internets. Your truth takes stats in isolation. Good job, genius.

    Have you noticed Romania is at number 39 in regards to user base? Shockingly, Us is at the top.

  34. Gekidami

    Hey, bro. Whatever you say, you now want to claim that the US is the PS3′s biggest user base (and i’m sure in individual countries it is, but Europe as a whole tops it, thats why the PS3 has outsold the 360 globally year after year)? Ok… But remember when you said they rely on Europe and “secondary markets”? Whoops.

    Either way, your trolling failed, i’ve shown it and fuck; you yourself are showing it. Oh wait, maybe that was the admission that you were wrong? Oddly worded but ok, we accept.

  36. Da Man

    Well, ‘bro’, obviously (not for you) it outsold it globally thanks to Japan.

    You seem to have trouble understanding anything beyond ‘factual statements’ and ‘official sales figures’. I was never talking about pointless isolated stats. I was showing at least a half arsed, tad bit in depth look at it, versus your idiotic speedtest, you phucking soldier.

    I’m yet to troll, brah.

    #36 3 years ago
  37. Gekidami

    ^ Ironically you on the other hand appear to have serious comprehension issues when it comes to factual statements and official sales figures, or any kind of figures for that matter. Well, besides ‘Da Man figures’, figures and claims you’ve made up yourself based off your dumb assumptions. You’ve failed to back up anything you’ve said, in fact you’ve backed up my point, then debunked your original claim by saying the US is in fact one of the PS3′s biggest markets.

    You were wrong and now you’re trying to shift your position and wiggle. You’ve been schooled, chump.

    Oh and please be trolling, because if the drivel you post on this site isnt trolling, then it means you’re being serious, which makes you look really really bad.

    What I’ve said was how there’s a lack of decent internet in Europe. Meaning decent internet among the whole population.

    US might be the biggest potential market, they just don’t buy Pos. Simple, no? They have good inter webs, scattered across many customers. Comprende?

    I happen to live in that ‘EE’ you ‘re so fond of now, out of two-three cities there’re hardly any proper roads out there. But that shouldn’t stop you from believing it is a potential market for cloud based toys.

    Drivel you say, piece of shit? People say lots of things in here and post those regularly, for some reason only known to you and your blu-ray player over there, you appear five minutes after the (selectively) Sony ones. Face it, you’re an idiot.

    Rather narrow minded. So in the Gekidami’s world, people either work or troll. =(

    @19 The problem is that it only works “good”.

    In the case of OnLive, The monthly subscriptions only give you a selection of the titles, and rarely the new ones that people actually want to play., You don’t even get to “own” the ones you do buy, which you can find cheaper in the bargain bins within a month or two of their release. And thats completely ignoring the fact that lots of people don’t have the Internet to support it anyway.

    @37 He thinks he’s serious.

    @39 The US has solid internet? Uh, no it doesn’t: http://www.forbes.com/sites/kymmcnicholas/2011/01/24/the-fastest-internet-speeds-in-the-world/

    Internet in the States is some of the most costly and bandwidth-restrictive you can find in any developed country, and the gap between the slowest and fastest is huge, both on the pocket and the potential scope of high speed Internet.

    lol Why u mad?
    Luckily not all of Europe in a lost wasteland, and as you’ve said yourself, one of the PS3′s biggest markets is the US along with Japan.

    Are wu feeling picked on? Poor wittle thing. If you dont want your shit called out on, stop spreading it around the site, you’re one of the sites biggest BS spinners and trolls, you hate at every occasion you get, either on Sony or just claiming you’re ‘soo’ superior to everyone else. The apparent hatred you have for a video game company is just sad to no end and contradictory to this ‘too cool for games’ image you try to convey. I’m not the only person who thinks your crap is just boring at this point, so stop being the new TEA.

    Solid or not, better than over here. Thanks for another generic, inane post though o’connor.

    No u r.

    Bla bla bla. You sad hypocritical piece of shit. (Much like many, mind you, so i’ll give you that)Yeah, I’ll keep on doing it. Just for you to have something to do, aside from the sticky jumps.

    I’m not too cool, I play toys regularly. Including Sony ones. You’re wrong on all fronts, idiot.

    I hope Vita dies a horrible agonizing death, you poor little thing.

    Lmao.

    Wasteland dominates your charts. Don’t forget that.

    Gekidami, you’re amazing. I’m still baffled as to why you ‘re doing this all the time. You ‘re completely serious about this, and completely devoted.. Are you that insecure? Or are you hoping to make other visitors feel safe? Either way, cloud based console is an insta fail in Europe (a sony ”stronghold’, historically).

    I was hoping for some quality descusion in this thread. Thanks DaMan and Gek.

    I do agree with ya Mike, OnLive has a somewhat flawed biz model. That is why it will be, imo, very important to see what Sony has in mind before passing final judgement. I think the tech is there for the most part, and I think it is only going to improve as time marches forward. I would hope to see a side by side offering of both retail and cloud. If your new retail purchase also came with a code to add the game to your cloud collection, that might be a sensible start, for example. Esp if that same cloud service could be used on your Vita.

    Very much looking forward to learning more about this, hopefuly at E3.

    @43
    You should ask yourself the same question. Though the difference between me and you is i only reply and set straight. You feel the need to constantly attack and insult first. Seems you’re the insecure one, maybe you should find something better to do with your time. Being an Internet troll is a pretty silly vocation.

  47. Phoenixblight

    EA and Dell have heavily invested into Galkai which already puts it ahead of Onlive and the demos they put on the site already provide a better service than Onlive’s so it will be interesting to see what they come up with.

    You need to check the definitions for ‘trolling’ and ‘insults’. As well as ‘mad’ probably.

    Fun fact: you’re a hypocritical, uninspiring, one sided toy zealot. :(

  50. Gekidami

    @48
    Everyone knows that you were trying to take a jab at Sony and your allegation -as shown- was indeed a fail.

    But your response to that -rather then proving a link to show mine was wrong- was this:

    “Gekidami, you’re a moron. Keep working for free, brah.”
    This was before i called you a worm btw.

    Dont try to play the victim card, you arent fooling anyone. You’re always the first to resort to insults and you have a history of trolling all things Sony related. You’re also known for making potentially racist/xenophobic remarks at Erthazus. I dont think much of the guy, but again, i practically only respond to him and if i call him an idiot, it’ll be because of his claims. Unlike you i dont hound him.

    If you can’t beat them with facts just use the old fashioned way of debating , mud slinging.

  52. Ireland Michael

    @50 While I completely agree with your sentiment, your time would probably be better spent discussing the topic and his factual inaccuracies rather than resorting to insulting him back.

    Can’t have a fire without fuel, right?

    If he’s consistently airing racist or xenophobic remarks, just tell Pat. You know he’s not very tolerate of that stuff.

    #52 3 years ago
  53. Da Man

    Ah, so you are indeed a little piece of shit.

    ”Moron, working for free’ was the equivalent of the ‘fail, try again’ one.

    That was a jab to a butthurt devotee indeed, thanks for proving my point. Sorry, I’ll take a box of sweets and my $599 next time, I’m really sorry, internet security guard.

    Learn what’s racist and xenophobic, silly little person. Bolshevik is a well, political insult. besides it’s due to him not reacting to anything non insulting.. It’s like talking to a wall otherwise.

    Hey, o’connor buddy. maybe I should link to that occurrence where you called our fellow ‘gamer’ Ghz a *gasp* DUMBFUCK?? You know what? I completely agree with HIS sentiment.
