PlayStation is giving a lot to talk about these days, since to the reception that the PlayStation Showcase has had, we must add that Ratchet & Clank: a separate dimension will arrive on PC, which has become a great opportunity for all fans (and those who are not) of the intergalactic couple to be able to enjoy this title on a new platform, which is also recognized for making use of the game in the cloud.
In this way, it is time to spin with the latest statements from Sony’s senior managers, since although in recent years we have seen how several companies have decided to take measures to expand their presence in the cloud gaming marketThis being the case with Sony as well, it seems that it is not being as easy as seen in other companies such as Microsoft.
Cloud gaming for Sony is a difficult technology to master, but they will allocate resources to take advantage of it
According to the words of the CEO of Sony, Kenichiro Yoshida, in an interview with the Financial Times, the manager spoke of games in the cloud stating that are facing many technical difficulties in this market, latency being the one that is causing the most problems. However, despite this, they continue to see the game in the cloud as an amazing business model in which they will continue to invest due to the potential it has.
In fact, Yoshida has added that at Sony even could use GT Sophy AI technology, which was first shown in Gran Turismo 7, released last March 2022, in order to enhance its cloud gaming efforts. Of course, it must be recognized that the timing could not have been better, since Yoshida’s comments occurred precisely when the acquisition of Activision Blizzard has been blocked by the CMA of the United Kingdom as a result of the game in the cloud.
We will have to see how cloud gaming evolves at Sony, but at least as far as the video game division is concerned, PlayStation is challenged to launch Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in the fall of this year, being a game that will arrive exclusively on PS5 and of which the mechanics related to the change between the two main characters have already been detailed.
