Ouya will stream games, thanks to OnLive

Ouya will stream games, thanks to OnLive

The creators of the Ouya Android OS home console, which was revealed as part of a Kickstarter campaign earlier this month, have today announced that OnLive will be available through the console from launch.

OnLive's cloud games service allows users to stream remotely-operated games onto a variety of connected devices. This technology has been a hot topic in the games industry in recent years, as it essentially eliminates the need for large client downloads and the requirement that users have the latest and most expensive CPUs and graphics cards.

Bruce Grove, general manager for OnLive, explained as part of a Kickstarter blog post that through the OnLive service, Ouya owners will be able to stream hundreds of console-quality titles, with instant game demos also offered.

The OnLive app for Ouya is due to be released alongside the console itself, at the start of 2013. It's notable that OnLive is already available as an app for the Android operating system via Google Play, hence this move makes a great deal of sense for both parties.

The move comes as a similar deal was struck up earlier this month -- Sony Computer Entertainment put a significant foot forward into the cloud gaming space, revealing an agreement to acquire game streaming service Gaikai.
