Don’t be surprised – Xbox and PlayStation are partners now


Microsoft and Sony shook hands and partners now. both Xbox-maker and PlayStation-Maker were arch-rivals in the gaming world. Sony and Microsoft are responsible for their gaming ecosystems and consoles that come with PlayStation and Xbox.

One day before on May 16, the gaming industry was surprised, when Microsoft and Sony declared a partnership in the field. The main aim of this partnership between these two gaming giants is to provide the most superior experience in the gaming and entertainment sector.

Don't be surprised | Xbox and PlayStation are partners now, here is the reason why

Based on the Microsoft statement “The two companies will explore joint development of future cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure to support their respective game and content-streaming services.” In the future, Sony’s ongoing gaming and content streaming services may also be powered by Microsoft’s Azure.

Microsoft further said “these efforts will also include building better development platforms for the content creator community,” which sounds like both Sony and Microsoft are planning to partner on future services aimed at creators and the gaming community.

Both companies say they will “share additional information when available.” This partnership means Sony and Microsoft will work together on cloud gaming. That is a big deal, and it is huge damage for Microsoft’s main cloud competitor, The Amazon.

Google, a new gaming competitor to Microsoft and Sony, launched its own Stadia game streaming service this year. Google will use YouTube to enhance it to the public. As Google  Stadia is actually a serious threat to both Sony and Microsoft. it seems like the companies are grouping up, so Sony needs some underlying infrastructure assistance to fight back.

Google Stadia will stream games from the Pixel devices, cloud to the Chrome browser and Chromecast. While Sony already provides a cloud gaming service, but Microsoft is offering tests of its personal xCloud gaming service later on this year

Along with the content-streaming and cloud gaming partnership, Microsoft and Sony will even work together on AI (artificial intelligence). this will likely involve the “intelligent image sensor solutions”. Sony is using Microsoft’s AI platform in its consumer products.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Sony has always been a leader in both entertainment and technology, and the collaboration we announced today builds on this history of innovation,” he further said, “Our partnership brings the power of Azure and Azure AI to Sony to deliver new gaming and entertainment experiences for customers.”
