When it comes to the world of video games, the current generation saw a quantum leap in terms of innovativeness – the Nintendo Wii definitely ushered in a new wave of gaming with the Wiimote, and High Definition gaming became the buzzword for many with the release of the Xbox 360 and Sony PS3. Not only that, motion controls changed the landscape on how video games are played forever, and the next generation of video game consoles for the living room do look to continue the innovative trend. According to a Sony executive, cloud gaming is “absolutely inevitable” and the Japanese giant is “considering how this can be a part of PlayStation”.
Assuming future internet speeds around the world improve in due time, you can be sure that there is an extremely lucrative market to tap into where cloud gaming is concerned. Some rumors have even made its way around, touting that Sony would have hopped aboard the cloud gaming bandwagon at the recently concluded E3, but that proved to be a false alarm. This does not mean the end of Sony’s ambitions to explore the realm of cloud gaming, and we do wonder the kinds of game genres which will dominate cloud gaming in the future.
