Dating back to March of 2009, Sony has been planning for a program called "PS Cloud" by registering trademarks. At the time, many people believed that the product would come out to directly compete with OnLive which at the time, it was a growing, independent business. A few months later in June 2009, Sony officially bought the domain 'playstationcloud.com'. Last year, Sony bought out the cloud service called Gaikai and immediately rumors started stirring about how Sony planned to bring it to the PlayStation platform. Today as sourced on VG247, the following domains were registered from GaiKai: Playstation-Cloud.com, Playstation-Cloud.org & PS-Cloud.net.
In prevention of scam artists using similar domain names, Gaikai purchase similar domains on Friday to prevent any fraudulent activity such as the 'Free Microsoft points' websites. As for what Gaikai will be bringing to the PlayStation brand, we have no idea but we'll be watching tomorrow to see what they'll be offering. There are several things the service could do like allow gamers to have a subscription to play classic games from all Sony console generations for a certain fee.
During today's Bonus Round, Kotaku's Editor-in-Chief Stephen Totilo pitched that Sony would prepare players who plan on making the transition to have PS4 games available through cloud game on the PS3 so they can experience products before putting forward a $400 investment. Either way, I'm extremely excited to see what PlayStation has to bring for cloud gaming.
