OnLive has officially announced that their service will be available on the OUYA console at launch next year. If you’re not familiar with either products, you can check out our coverage on both the OUYA and OnLive. OnLive on the OUYA console should be a wonderful pairing as it allows future users a broad library of games to enjoy. Are you a current backer of the OUYA project? According to OnLive, here’s what this will do for you:
- OnLive will deliver a full console-class experience, bringing hundreds of top-tier games from more than 80 publishers to the OUYA console for play on demand.
- OUYA owners will be able to jump in and play any of these games both at home on their OUYA console, and on the go on PCs, Macs, tablets and phones, never leaving a game behind.
- Instant demos will be available for nearly every game in our ever-growing library—from eagerly anticipated indie titles like Ravaged, to hot blockbusters like the upcoming Darksiders® II. Players can experience up to 30 minutes of each game for free before deciding what to buy. If they like it, they can continue playing where the demo left off.
While there may be plenty of doubters and naysayers on whether the OUYA project will rise or fall, it’s definitely great to see other companies such as OnLive having faith in it and providing their services. Does this make you guys more excited of OUYA’s impending launch that’s expected sometime next year?
