290w ago - Sony has [Register or Login to view links] the 'PS Cloud' with the US Patent and Trademark Office, following the announcement of a number of new 'cloud gaming' services such as OnLive and Playcast Media at this year's Games Developers Conference.

To quote: The patent has lead to speculation that Sony Computer Entertainment may well be looking to 'cloud gaming' - where the processing power of a home console is replaced by that of a remote server outside of the gamer's home - as a strategic move forward for its PlayStation division.

The future of PlayStation?

Or, put in more straightforward terms, is PS Cloud the PlayStation 4? Is the 'next' PlayStation going to resemble a server-based system that allows gamers to play and save games to a user account via a range of devices such as their PlayStation 3, their PC or even their TV set-top box?

290w ago - Today Sony's Hardware Marketing Director John Koller has officially confirmed what the rest of us knew previously.

To quote: For the first time ever, PlayStation 2 will be offered at a price point under $100 (that's $99.99 MSRP, to be exact), starting April 1!

With this new price, we intend to introduce a new generation of consumers - some of whom weren't even alive when the system was first introduced in 2000 - to the immense entertainment value offered by PlayStation 2.

In the gaming industry, the typical lifecycle for a console is around five years, but because we build each of our platforms for a large and diverse consumer base, we design our platforms differently. With the original PlayStation and now PlayStation 2, we've proven that consumers can rely on our platforms for their gaming and entertainment needs for at least a decade.

290w ago - Sony's Home team has told GamesIndustry (linked above) that its online service is becoming the "perfect storm" for games publishers looking to interact directly with their consumers.

To quote: Three months after launch, and with the first tangiable user details being fed back to partners, publishers are now able to build more unique content for users, and turn that content in revenues.

Peter Edwards, director of the Home Platform Group at Sony, added that content creators are now looking at the future potential of the service, after a few months of creating standard software for Home.
