Gaming Rivals Now Gaming Buddies

Playstation maker Sony and Xbox creator Microsoft are setting aside their differences and announcing a new gaming-related partnership venture. While it is not a unified console or cross-platform play, it is instead about AI and Cloud Gaming.

The two will partner up on “new innovations to enhance customer experiences” in their direct-to-consumer entertainment platforms. Furthermore, they will explore joint development of future cloud solutions to support their respective game and content-streaming services.

Additionally, the two will also explore the use of current Microsoft Azure datacenter-based solutions for Sony’s game and content-streaming services.

What Are the Two Companies Saying About This Deal?
