Facebook made waves in the tech world Tuesday evening by purchasing yet again, a company. However this one comes out of left field and has many wondering why?
Despite all the hoopla around Titanfall for Xbox One in the media, which is a great game by the way, Sony was able to stay in the headlines by making a big announcement at the 2014 GDC.
Last night Sony unveiled its “Project Morpheus“, which is a Virtual Reality (VR) system for the PlayStation 4 (PS4). I’m sure there are some people groaning “Oh no, not another peripheral or gimmick,” but I truly think that the way Sony is approaching this technology is far better than their previous launches of “Move” motion gaming system for the PS3 and also the effort to push video games to make use of 3D televisions. Both met lukewarm success for different reasons. So it’s safe to say that this attempt to enter the VR frontier is going to be met with huge skepticism from folks who are constant Sony detractors, but it will also face healthy questioning from folks who are pro-Sony.

I think the media and gamers alike didn’t expect Sony to announce anything very significant in regards to the video gaming world at CES 2014. That’s what E3 is for right? Well… yeah. However, yesterday Sony broke the rules by quietly dropping two bombs on the gaming world at CES.
SCEA President Andrew House announced a new cloud based TV Service from Sony, this new service will run in a similar way to the exciting Music Unlimited and video Unlimited services Sony already has. This new TV service will allow you to stream live cable TV to any device with this application installed which of course includes the PlayStation 4, Bravia Tv’s plus Smartphones/tablets.
This application will not only allow you to stream live cable TV but will also have many interactive options like the ability to pause and start live TV on multiple devices, search the TV Guide, Social features and watch TV on demand.
Sadly apart from the application launching later this year we have no other information at this time.
During Sony’s CES 2014 conference Andrew House announced the new Playstation streaming service called PlayStation Now. PlayStation Now is based and built on Gaikai technology and will allow users to stream new and old PlayStation titles on various gaming and non gaming devices.
Andrew House announced that PlayStation Now will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3, Sony Bravia TV’s and Android/iOS based SmartPhones/Tablets. At this time we don’t know what games will be available on the service but Andrew House did announce The Last Of Us and Beyond Two Souls will be playable on Bravia Tv’s at CES so we expect to see those at launch.
A closed beta version of PlayStation Now will start at the end of january with the full launch coming Summer this year.
