Sony today has finally uncovered what their streaming service will be, something they hinted at after they bought cloud-based game streaming service Gaikai back in 2012. This new service is officially called Playstation Now and will still be a game streaming service but for classic Playstation games.
Nvidia has been sticking their chips in Tesla cars and bringing them to CES for a couple of years now. Other companies have dabbled in similar projects as well. Google, however, has gone ahead and created the Open Automotive Alliance and announced its existence today. Similar to the Open Handset Alliances, the Open Automotive Alliance (or OAA for short) is a partnership between Google and a variety of car manufacturers where they will be bringing Android to cars, mostly as an in-car info-tainment service.
Nvidia has announced that they have partnered up with multiple companies in order to developer PCs and Wi-Fi routers optimized for their GameStream technology. These will be official GameStream certified PCs and routers made for use with Nvidia’s game streaming service which is slated to officially roll-out in full force soon.
Last night Nvidia held their CES 2014 press conference and as we mentioned in our lead-up article to this event, Nvidia was going to be bringing some mobile gaming news to the stage. As it turns out the company did just that with the announcement of the Tegra K1 chipset, or as they are calling it, a super chip.
