Well, it's more speculation than proof. Just a catchy thread title, y'know.
(For the record, I think there will be a PS4).
But look at these and tell me there isn't some correlation going on here.
Cloud gaming service Gaikai has commented that one of the current console manufacturers actually won't be creating another console for the next generation. Nanea Reeves,chief product officer for Gaikai, predicted, "Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3."
Sony is enticing the entire world by announcing their plans for this year's major industry event. First and foremost, they saythey will announce "the future of gameplay and innovation,"which has gotten people talking.
You may well be blown away by what’s on show, but it’s doubtful you’re going to be too shocked by any of the announcements.Apart from the partnership deal between PlayStation and a leading cloud gaming service, obviously.
Gameblog.fr (via NeoGAF ) received an invitation to a Gaikai event at the show, which reads: “Gaikai has major announcements in store for E3, which have the potential to change the future of video games, game consoles and how we play.”
In a move that will rock the next generation of console gaming, Sony is close to agreeing an acquisition of a high profile cloud gaming firm, MCV understands.
It was reported earlier this week that Sony was to reveal a partnership with a cloud gaming firm – specifically either OnLive or Gaikai – at E3 next week.
Subsequent chatter had seemingly calmed the rumours, suggesting that the proposed agreement was to do with Sony streaming TV services, and not consoles.
However, MCV understands that the deal is far more extensive than anyone could have predicted and will see Sony fully acquire one of the two firms. The deal, our source says, “is close to being signed”.
