Under the memorandum of understanding signed by the parties, the two companies will explore joint development of future cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure to support their respective game and content-streaming services. In addition, the two companies will explore the use of current Microsoft Azure datacenter-based solutions for Sony’s game and content-streaming services. By working together, the companies aim to deliver more enhanced entertainment experiences for their worldwide customers.

“Conceptually we want to be where the consumer is, and we’ll support new entrants and we are a believer in streaming services,” he added. “Again, you know we need to have business models that make sense for us. So far, we’re pretty optimistic.”
