Cloud-based Gaikai adds Sony, Activision execs

Haven’t heard of Gaikai? Maybe that will change with this recent announcement, uncovered by Gamespot. The cloud-based gaming service has added top talent to its advisory board in the form of former Sony exec Phil Harrison and Robin Kaminsky, who filled a similar role at Activision.

You may remember Harrison from several E3s past, though he’s had a brief stint with Atari as of late. Kaminsky in turn has been behind some of Activision’s biggest moves since joining the company in 2005.

Still in closed beta stages, Gaikai will allow players to buy games and play demos through a cloud service. Think OnLive, just online (see what I did there?)
