Newsbrief: Amazon's AppStream service, a new tech that allows portions of downloadable games to be streamed to players before the game has been fully installed, is now available to all developers.

CCP Games said earlier this year that it was experimenting with AppStream in its popular MMO EVE Online, allowing players to stream the character creation process before the game was properly installed.

Today, Amazon said that the tech has left beta, and can be utilized by any developers. Those interested in checking it out should read the latest Amazon blog post.

"Amazon AppStream tech now available to all devs"

Not Unity devs. Using any Cloud Gaming platform breaks the Unity 4.0 EULA.

But at $0.86/hr/player, why bother?

I didn't read Unity EULA, but seriously? Didn't know about that.

Here is the fine print: http://unity3d.com/company/legal/eula

This also prevents distributing your Unity game on PlayStation Now, TwitchPlays(game), OnLive and any other similar services that go live in the near future.
