In Theory: Could the Sony/Microsoft cloud partnership end the console war?

From Digital Foundry: “Genuine shocks in the games industry tend to be few and far between, but who could have predicted last week’s announcement that Sony would be partnering with Microsoft to build the next generation of its cloud gaming operation? The possibilities here are remarkable – a potential consolidation of console titles hosted on one streaming platform, opening the door to a common standard in multiplayer gaming, with cross-play available on all games. The existence of the partnership proves how seriousy both platform holders are considering cloud gaming, raising many questions: will this herald the end of console hardware? Will PlayStation and Xbox eventually consolidate into one experience? And by extension – will the console war be over?”
