Gaikai grabs $5m in funding

A filing with the US’ Securities and Exchange Commission has revealed that upcoming cloud gaming service Gaikai has received $5m in investment.

The document also revealed that the business, backed by veteran designer Dave Perry, has former EA and Jamdat exec and current Benchmark Capital investment guru Mitch Lasky on board as a director – suggesting Benchmark is the VC firm stumping up the cash.

Gaikai reps have not yet commented on the actual filing, except to confirm its existence.
