Sony / Gaikai Registers PlayStation Cloud Domains for PS4 Launch

96w 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."

Will the controllers stay the same? I really hope they do.

I'm sure they will be expensive at first. Then like all consoles and games they will drop. You know the price of the game depends on how much work went into creating it. I would not be shocked if they make 3D TV games. I could see them costing $60 per title

Following up on the previous Sony PlayStation 4 rumors, today a well-known Japanese newspaper is [Register or Login to view links] that the PS4 (Orbis) is rumored to cost 40,000 Yen (around $430 / £300) and arrive in Japan and North America this year alongside some additional rumors from [Register or Login to view links] below.

To quote from GamingEverything.com (linked above): "The publication writes today that the PS4 will feature Gaikai cloud tech and will offer special social elements in which you can discuss things with friends while playing games.

Asahi, a well-known newspaper in Japan, is reporting that the next PlayStation will cost more than 40,000 yen. The publication also adds to previous speculation that the console will be made available this year in North America and Japan.

40,000 yen may not mean much to consumers overseas. Converting between currencies, that would be about $428 in USD and roughly 317 Euros.

Two things to keep in mind: 1) Asahi says Sony’s new home console will cost more than 40,000 yen and 2) prices tend to see adjustments in different territories rather than straight conversions.

And of course, Asahi’s report should only be treated as speculation for now."
