Ouya owners can now stream a range of triple-A games directly to their console, thanks to the launch of a new cloud gaming beta program from Playcast Media.

Playcast's game streaming service is deployed through Amazon's AWS infrastructure, and includes games from publishers like Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Konami, Warner Bros, 2K, Namco Bandai, Square Enix, Capcom, Codemasters, Disney, Sega, Atari and THQ.

From today, Ouya players can play any of the games provided during the beta period for free. Games included with the service include Lego Batman, Frontlines: Fuel of War, Prince of Persia, Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing, Super Street Fighter IV, Dirt 3 and Mirror's Edge.

Playcast says that only a small handful of games will be available today, and that the number will ramp up over the coming weeks as the service's stability is proven. All games will be available to play using Ouya controllers.

A final launch date and price for the streaming service has not yet been set.

Any impressions on that?

I once tried to stream FEAR2 back when OnLive had it's open beta, but it was a horrible experience.

I will have to try this later this week. Always wanted to give Mirror's Edge a play.

Streaming games is incredibly dependent on your local internet connection. I've got pretty steady 6MB/s down and played both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City through OnLive. Generally it was good but every so often it would get blurry or have high latency.

This will likely help a little but I fear the kids will still not think this is cool :(
