Gaikai head, David Perry, has said that any expected deal between Sony and his company was never going to happen.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Perry said that claims by sites such as VG247, MCV and Gi.biz, where all untrue.
“I wasn’t even at the Sony press conference,” he told the site. “I was sitting in my hotel room, and I know everyone was like, ‘Oh my god, are they going to announce cloud gaming?’ And I was like, ‘No, they’re not going to announce cloud gaming.’ I wasn’t even there!”
Gaikai does think that deals such as this may happen in the future, although he did add that he’d prefer not to compete against anyone.
“To give you my real take on it,” he said, “I honestly can’t think of a future for the console companies that don’t include cloud gaming at some point. They can hold out as long as they want to, but at some point, you don’t want to be the console that can’t do this.”
“To some extent, I expect all three of them will have this.”
Gaikai did announce a deal with Samsung at E3, allowing the latter to stream Gaikai’s services through its TV sets.
It sounds like someone got their wireless, wires crossed in all of this.
