Popular cloud gaming company OnLive has confirmed that it's going to bring its streaming service to the Ouya console, effectively guaranteeing access for owners of the new device to hundreds of high quality PC games.
OnLive offers a special cloud service that can be used to play PC games on the company's servers and then have the gameplay footage streamed to all sorts of devices, ranging from computers, to tablets and anything in between.
Now, the company has confirmed that its service will also be available on the Ouya console, through the voice of its UK General Manager, Bruce Grove.
"When OnLive first heard about Ouya, we were excited to see console gaming becoming more available and open. Like Ouya, we came to gaming with a new vision for making top-quality gaming accessible to more people, and we continue to look for ways to expand on that vision," Grove said.
Ouya is the open home console project that's already amassed lots of money from fans on popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter.
The device is running on an Android operating system, which made quite a few developers doubt its long-term appeal. With OnLive onboard, however, this might change.
"Ouya is rethinking the console business, making waves by using standard technology to make gaming for your living room accessible, affordable and more innovative than ever. In OnLive's case, we pioneered a groundbreaking, cloud-based system that instantly delivers games to any device on demand."
As of yet, Ouya's Kickstarter campaign isn't even finished, as it still has 11 more days to go and already received $5.6 million (€4.5 million) in donations.
The estimated release date of the console is March 2013, so it's going to be interesting to see what will happen when it finally appears on the market.
