Speaking to Eurogamer following their recent announcement of a deal with Samsung, Gaikai's David Perry has shot down recent rumours
that the Cloud-stream gaming service had inked a similar with Sony for the PlayStation 3.
"I wasn't even at the Sony press conference," Perry told Eurogamer. "I was sitting in my hotel room, and I know everyone was like, 'Oh my god, are they going to announce cloud gaming?' And I was like, 'No, they're not going to announce cloud gaming.' I wasn't even there!"
Perry continues to explain that although that particular deal did not materialise, that they have been pitching their product to all platform holders from the start.
"I've been meeting with them constantly, evangelising how far we've come - 'you really should take this seriously'," he said. "Let's just say they're listening, and always have been. You see them when you go to conferences, we see them listening very intently - 'how's this going, where's this going?'"
"I want to be very clear," he added. "I don't think physical media is going to go away really quickly."
But he said that once people commit mentally to the idea of cloud gaming, in the same way they did MP3s and the same way they did digital photos, "then boom - you're in".
