OnLive, the game streaming service that bypasses expensive hardware in favour of a strong broadband connection connecting to a remote army of super-computers in order to beam the gaming action to your screen, is now on course for an autumn launch in the UK.
It’s the first in a number of announcements from the cloud-streaming service, who have already inked distribution deals with BT and HTC. It is thought that pre-order sign-ups to the service via www.onlive.co.uk will launch in just a few days.
Disney Interactive will also be adding their catalogue of games to OnLive over the summer, as well as new triple-A titles such as Red Faction Armageddon and Homefront multiplayer touching down too.
Perhaps most exiting of all is the news that OnLive will soon be compatible with TVs, Blu-ray players and set-top boxes that run on Intel-based chipsets.
