Report: Major ISPs Plan Cloud-Based Gaming Services for 2013, 2014

September 25, 2012 -

A report from Bloomberg claims that a number of major U.S. cable operators are planning on offering cloud-based gaming as early as next year. The cable companies and service providers that want to get into the game - according to the report - include AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner, and Comcast.

Citing "people with knowledge of the matter," Bloomberg claims that trials for some of these services are expected to begin later this year, allowing providers to "test and tweak" technology before a planned wider launch for some cloud-based gaming offerings in 2013 and some later in 2014.

And these games won't just be casual offerings, according to the report. Games provided through these carriers will include titles from publishers like Electronic Arts, Bloomberg claims.
