Last week, an agreement was released between Sony and Microsoft for collaboration on future gaming streaming platforms. But it seems, besides internet users, the news also shocked the PlayStation team.
According to Bloomberg, the agreement was closed without the knowledge of the team responsible for the PlayStation division. Officials knew of the partnership by the press and needed to be silenced by managers to convince them that plans for the next Japanese manufacturer's console were maintained.
Also according to US publications, a Sony spokesman said the talks would begin last year. This collaboration includes the use of the Microsoft Azure cloud platform to accommodate future streaming video games from Sony.
As a sector that has not received investment from Japanese companies for years, companies are forced to look for existing services and prepare for the future of the gaming market.
According to IHS Markit, cloud games will contribute 2 percent of industry revenue by 2023. The main companies in this segment intend to launch next generation consoles next year to prepare for streaming games to be feasible.
