The Microsoft-Sony Partnership Happened Due To Sony’s Initiation!

So the thought that Sony is Americanizing makes sense (especially if we remember how the PlayStation team was not even informed about the collaboration…) concerning the Microsoft-Sony partnership.

The teaming up of Microsoft-Sony was one of the biggest surprises of the year, and due to the agreement, the former company can use the latter’s Azure data centres in the future. They can work together against the Google Stadia, and, surprisingly, it was not Microsoft who initiated…

„It’s a beginning for us. First of all, it’s all driven by Sony. They looked at who are their partners that they can trust. It turns out, even though we’ve competed, we’ve also partnered. Basically and fundamentally the fact that we have a business model in the areas [like gaming] that they’re partnering with us, where we’re dependent on their success. So we will do the best job for them, whether it’s in the cloud or whether it’s in AI or what have you, to make sure that Sony can succeed with their IP creation. If you look at all the parts of [Sony’s] businesses, whether it’s in entertainment, gaming, or the camera businesses, all of these things can use more cloud computing power. But they can also go-to-market with Microsoft in some industrial cases, especially for their things around cameras,” Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, told Fortune in his interview with them.

So Microsoft might see its software on Sony’s hardware, and in return, Sony could use the Azure infrastructure, which is also rumoured to be used by Nintendo for its streaming service as well in the future. If the cloud gaming business kicks in, Sony might have made a good call on working with Microsoft for its next-gen iteration of PlayStation Now while the „greens” work on their streaming service, the xCloud.
