Gaikai PlayStation game roll-out imminent? Sony franchise art appears all over cloud gaming website

What ARE they building in there?

Sony's July buy-out of cloud gaming company Gaikai could be ready to bear fruit some time soon, if today's relaunch of the Gaikai website is anything to go by. The redesigned website couldn't be any more PlayStation-friendly if Kaz Hirai's smiling face popped out of it upon loading. In 3D.

The cool blue glassy curves are pure Sony before you even get to the character artwork, but the latter hammers the point home with the force of a dinosaur-killing space rock. Uncharted, Killzone, God of War, LittleBigPlanet and Infamous all make an appearance in various areas of the site, alongside Metal Gear Rising: Revengance and what looks like it could be Call of Duty.

No word on exactly what form the Gaikai/Sony co-developments will take, but the site's statement that "Gaikai will help SCE grow their ecosystem, empower developers with new capabilities, dramatically improve the reach of various content and bring breathtaking new entertainment experiences to end-users around the world" definitely adds fuel to the idea that Sony games might be heading to non-traditional formats not too far into the future.
