Gaikai Ramping Up Open Beta

November 18th, 2010 11:27 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

Gaikai, the cloud gaming service currently under development, has begun its open beta phase, sending out first 1,000 and then 10,000 invites to players who requested them. Dave Perry said in a blog post that they will continue sending out invites in batches of 10,000 until they pin down any outstanding server issues. His post also includes video of a player streaming Mass Effect 2 to a Linux system. “We are working with lots of publishers / retailers / media sites / electronics makers / telecom companies etc. We have at least 60 deals in the pipe at some stage. (You can imagine how nuts that is to manage.) … Everyone will be getting invited in batches, and if you are too far from our servers, don’t worry — you’ve actually helped, as you’ve shown us where we need to install more data centers. (We’re effectively reverse-engineering the internet, letting the traffic show us where the best data center position would give access to the most people.)”
