OnLive Coming To UK This Autumn


The Cloud-based streaming game service OnLive arrives on our shabby shores later this year, which is a great thing if your PC is rubbish but your internet connection is great, because it means you will be able to play a bunch of top-whack games for cheap(ish). The UK site will be open for "registering interest and gamertags from 8pm Tuesday next week", according to the company. OnLive are also keen to stress that they will soon have 100 games on the service - with Red Faction: Armageddon being the 100th - and that they have new tech coming to complement the service. This tech is a controller that should work with any of the wide range of devices that OnLive can stream to. It is "a Wireless Controller that is as universal as the OnLive Game Service itself. The Controller not only works with OnLive’s own MicroConsole TV adapter, but works with almost any OnLive-compatible device." This means you'll be able to use their gamepad with a tablet, or even some stuff like certain Blu-Ray players. So that's clever.

I've still not see this service running with my own eyes, but I am keen to try it out. We'll take a proper look later this year.
