The revamped site promises the firm is "working even harder to ensure the world's best entertainment content is delivered instantly to you." It also includes imagery featuring Metal Gear Solid 4, Mass Effect 3 and God of War 3.

Sony aquired Gaikai for $380m earlier this year. The revamped site is the first real suggestion the platform holder could be planning to use the Gaikai tech for PS3 games.

Some analysts had speculated that Sony moved for the cloud firm in order to better position its TV models.

Sources also suggested the move would allow PS3 owners to play streamed PS2 and PSone back catalogue titles, however both companies refused to comment on the rumours.

"Over the past several years, we've worked tirelessly to re-define the way people access and play video games," the new site states.

"We developed amazing streaming technology, assembled an accomplished management team, and built the world's most widespread cloud gaming network.

"And while we think all of that is pretty cool, we're not done yet. As a new member of the Sony Computer Entertainment family, we're working even harder to ensure the world's best entertainment content is delivered instantly to you, no matter where you are in the world."
