posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sony and Microsoft announced on Thursday that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly develop solutions to support their game and content streaming services using Microsoft Azure. The joint development aims to deliver "enhanced entertainment experiences" to customers, as well as develop new platforms for content creators.
The collaboration also includes exploring the integration of Microsoft Azure AI technology with Sony's image sensors to develop "intelligent image sensor solutions," as well as the use of Microsoft's AI platform in Sony consumer products "to provide highly intuitive and user-friendly AI experience."
Sony already provides its own PlayStation Now game streaming service. Google announced in March that it would launch its Stadia cloud gaming service later this year.
