He simply asks who "wouldn't want to partner or own a company like Gaikai?" Perry pointed to Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and Google as all possible interested parties. He'll stay on regardless.
Should someone actually move to acquire Gaikai, Perry won't be quitting his post and he wants to "see this through to the end." The CEO says the cloud is history in the making.
Apparently "people are calling all the time asking if we need funds," David Perry told . It's rumoured that the cloud gaming company was on sale for $500 million. "We're just trying to evangelise this concept of cloud gaming and in doing so we expect someone will pop up and want to participate or partner or own the company," he said.
"That's why we keep as much momentum as we can. It's a case of keep executing and at some point, somewhere, cloud gaming will become interesting to someone. Media companies are realizing the importance of games, and software companies, are realizing that it's just as easy to stream footage off power points as well as games."
"When you think about the big picture, which company wouldn't want to partner or own a company like Gaikai?" he continued. "Microsoft, Apple, Citrix, even a Facebook or Google might want to do a game strategy because our engagement times are so long compared with a normal ad."
The company, a rival of OnLive, has "reached the point where raising money isn't a problem" but should he sell Gaikai he would want to remain on and continue his dream for it.
"Intel, Qualcomm, Limelight and the VC guys are all investing in us. It's been good support so far," he said. "People are calling all the time asking if we need funds. Money is not a subject of concern any more. We're focusing more of the onboarding and scaling of the company."
"My objective is clear. In the history of the game industry, some day there will be a chapter in the book on cloud gaming. We have to see this through to the end. We have to finish what we started. We'll stick around for a good time yet. There's plenty more work to be done. I'm not selling and moving on. I'll continue working."
