Amidst rising concerns about the anti-competitive effects of the Microsoft-Activision merger, which, according to the UK's CMA, could give Microsoft unprecedented power in cloud gaming, Sony is aiming to navigate this evolving landscape.
Cloud gaming presently accounts for less than 3% of the global gaming market, but it's hard to deny its potential.
Jim Ryan, CEO of SIE, confirmed the company’s plans for cloud gaming in his recent business presentation. The company talked about his plans for new franchises, the success of the new PS Plus, and the sales figures of the VR2. In the given presentation, Ryan explained why the trend towards mobility is increasing, indicating that Sony has some aggressive strategies in this relatively untapped sector.
Cloud gaming is on the brink of a massive transformation and Sony wants to be there when it happens. As Sony throws its massive weight behind it with "aggressive" strategies, the rest of the gaming world waits in anticipation.
