PlayStation Now Game Streaming May End Up In Your Web Browser
We know that PlayStation Now is set to stream our favorite PlayStation 1, 2 & 3 games to a ton of devices. When you consider GaiKai‘s pedigree and the fact that they released a series of demo videos showing high-end games running in the browser (below) things start to become a bit more interesting.
There’s also the forgotten fact that the domain name playstation-cloud.org was registered by GaiKai on behalf of Sony just before the PS4 reveal; hypothetically this could translate into PlayStation Now running in the browser. The above video showcases quality browser-based gameplay, and that was before Gaikai was backed by Sony and supported by Rackspace.
I’m certain there will be a dedicated app for the service on PS4, PS3, Vita, and other devices, but deploying PS Now via browser would also open up the PC as a potential platform. Gaikai browser-based game streaming hasn’t “taken off” in a general sense, but with the PlayStation brand behind it; it very well may.
Seeing the overall quality of what Gaikai was able to offer in the past working with the Origin service, I feel that their new found position with Sony may lead to further elaboration of streaming PlayStation games via web browser. Of course, this is all speculation. But the fact that Gaikai has streamed games via web browser in the past leads us to believe it just may be a possibility. We’ve reached out to Gaikai for further clarification on the possibility of PlayStation Now running in a web browser. We’ll update when we receive a response.
