Onlive UK to launch in late 2011

Post by Yaznee! L4DS on Mon Jun 07, 2010 11:55 am

Cloud gaming service Onlive is going live in the US next week, but we
won’t see it until late next year.
BT has bought 2.6 percent share in the service and signed an
exclusive deal with Onlive to distribute it with broadband packages,
“We’ll announce further details about our launch plans later this year,
but we would hope to make it available by the end of 2011,” a
spokesperson told PC Retail,
“We expect cloud-based distribution models for gaming to become
increasingly attractive and mainstream… the expectation is that many of
the popular games accessible on consoles today will be made available
via OnLive.”
Onlive hosts games on powerful centralised
servers and can stream them over the Internet to anyone with a fast
broadband connection, a television/monitor and a basic PC or Onlive
micro-console, precluding any need for a powerful and more expensive
console or gaming PC.
