Sony Registered Domains For Something Called 'PlayStation Cloud'

Illustration for article titled Sony Registered Domains For Something Called 'PlayStation Cloud'

On Friday, Sony registered domains for URLs based on something called "PlayStation Cloud," as discovered by Kotaku sleuth Superannuation today.


The domains include and playstation-org, among others.

The domains were registered by someone from Gaikai, the cloud gaming service that Sony bought last year. Gaikai allows people to play games via cloud-based Internet streaming.

This news adds some credence to rumors that the next PlayStation will stream games.

Sony is expected to reveal the next PlayStation during an event in New York City tomorrow. We'll be there, and we'll update you as it happens.


I'm curious and rather ignorant about the whole cloud gaming thing. What benefits does it provide and why, as a consumer, should I be interested in it?
