Microsoft and Sony finally playing Co-Op mode
Microsoft and Sony have announced a new business partnership. Following Sony’s admittance that their cloud gaming and AI services are not as advanced as they should be, the two companies announced they would both be using Microsoft’s Azure cloud network for game streaming as well as Microsoft’s AI programs which will benefit Sony more. In the other direction, Microsoft will be incorporating Sony’s image sensors into their Azure programs and edge products to improve camera quality and recognition.
