Sony / Gaikai Registers PlayStation Cloud Domains for PS4 Launch


Sponsored Links
83w ago - Just days after the PS4 / Orbis controller prototype surfacing, today [Register or Login to view links] has revealed that Sony / Gaikai has registered PlayStation Cloud domains in preparation for tomorrow's PlayStation 4 launch.

To quote: "Superannuation has dug up domains for '[Register or Login to view links]', '[Register or Login to view links]' and '[Register or Login to view links]', all registered on February 15 by Gaikai - the cloud gaming service which Sony acquired in July last year.

This comes just as the industry braces for what it expects to be the unveiling of Sony's next-generation PlayStation 4, or codename 'Orbis', at tomorrow's NYC event.

A report last week claimed that the PlayStation 4 will be capable of playing PS3 games via cloud streaming service Gaikai.

If true, this would provide a feasible solution to the issue of backwards compatibility on the new console - a feature that would be otherwise difficult to achieve due the likelihood of a vastly differing internal architecture to PS3."

The biggest Sony event ever? IMHO Sony will announce the new PS4, but will release it in the end of 2014

Following up on the previous rumor of Sony's PlayStation 4 costing around $400, today VGLeaks (linked above) has shared some details on the PS4 / Orbis Dual Camera functionality from a recent [Register or Login to view links] uncovered.

Below is the scoop, to quote: "When we unveiled Orbis, an enigmatic device called "Dual Camera" was also listed within the info.

  • "Dual Camera" appears to be an evolutioned HD Eyetoy instead of a Kinect device, based on the features offered right now.
  • It contains a pair of wide-angle cameras. Each camera offers a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p).
  • Sound is processed by a 4 microphone array working at 48 Khz.

The device can perform some non gaming tasks such as:

  • Recognize the user and log in the system
  • Video chat

In the gaming field it supports head and hand tracking as new game inputs. Currently it's not clear if this device will support body tracking in the future as Kinect but it's almost sure that it will be bundled with every Orbis system."
