Sony Will Bring Gaikai To Non-Gaming Products, Honor Partnerships

Sony Computer Entertainment president/CEO Andrew House has told The Wall Street Journal that it plans to utilize Gaikai outside gaming by extended the company’s reach, and the amazing network born out of the $380 million deal to other devices such as cell phones, internet-connected televisions, Blu-Ray players and more.

The company will also honor existing deals Gaikai signed with other firms before the acquisition. This means the deal between Gaikai and Samsung announced at E3 will stand.

Said House: “It’s recognition on Sony’s part that the cloud and cloud streaming technologies are going to have profound and possibly a very positive impact on not only our game business, but also in the way our consumers interact with and obtain content in general.”

Thanks, Joystiq.

    your not going to go spend 380M acquiring a company to then restrict it to such a small percentage of your install base!
    especially when they could use it on their TV and bluray players somewhere where they really need a boost!
    samsung and panasonic have been kicking the royal shit out of $onys TVs lately!
    this will help try turn that around.

    its nice to see a glimmer of the old company shine through.
    this and the 3D viewer they did, its about time we saw some of the old $ony we know and love!
    it will be interesting to see how $ony evolves on their 3D viewer.
