Producers of competitive game consoles Xbox and PlayStation want to collaborate on streaming and AI.
Producers of competitive game consoles Xbox and PlayStation have entered a strategic partnership, as reported by Die Presse. "The agreement primarily strengthens Microsoft Azure's cloud business for Internet-based applications because Sony wants to rationalize its games and media content," the online portal said.
Microsoft and Sony announced on Thursday that the two companies will develop new innovations to improve customer experience for their entertainment platforms and artificial intelligence solutions.
"Microsoft has been an important business partner for us for many years, but of course the two companies are also competing in some areas," said Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida. He hopes that the use of state-of-the-art ecology by both companies will "lead to a mutually complementary way of creating new value for society," Yoshidda continues.
