Cloud gaming service Gaikai is reportedly looking for a buyer and expects the successful bidder to offer over $500 million.
According to CNN sources, the company has already hired bankers to tender the sale.
The report follows earlier rumours that Sony intended to acquire the company in a deal revolving around backwards compatibility for older PlayStation games. Gaikai boss David Perry subsequently denied the claims at E3 2012.
Gaikai has so far refused to comment.
