Gaikai: There won’t be a PS4 or Xbox 720
One of the current console markers won’t have “one more generation”.
Hello, Nanea Reeves from Gaikai. Let us lend you our flame-shield. Because, well, you are probably going to need it. Especially after the controversial quote you just dropped in.
Speaking to Industry Gamers, the CPO of the cloud-based gaming service has predicted that at least one of the current console manufacturer will raise hands, accept defeat and politely withdraw from the console war. And that, in fact, will be the big news at E3, not the nex-gen consoles itself.
“Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3,” said Reeves.
The possibilities of either Microsoft or Sony backing down is ridiculous. Not only do they have both resources and projects tied up to the business, both the companies have massive egos that just won’t accept the beating.
Of course, Reeves could be hinting at a cloud-based service, but that seems quite far-fetched considering how it will just limit the platform’s reach. Many parts of the world, including the Middle East upto certain extent, is not fully equipped, in terms of technology and price, to run avail such a service. Plus, hey, hiring servers all around the world is a massively huge investment in itself.
