Following yesterday’s announcement that Sony has bought cloud gaming service Gaikai, Microsoft has asserted that it too is investing in cloud tech.
'The cloud has been a key component of our strategy and a big area of investment with Xbox for many years.' said a Microsoft representative.
"Through Xbox LIVE we're serving up gaming and entertainment in the cloud to more than 40 million people," the rep added. "We're committed to delivering extraordinary entertainment experiences across devices in a uniquely connected way through Xbox, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and other popular devices, and we're looking forward to continuing to innovate in this space in the future."
Exactly how cloud technology will be implemented onto current and next-gen platforms it yet to be outlined, but the suggestion is that we’ll be able to stream games directly through our consoles. It’s an interesting prospect.
