OnLive: Games, products, and services to remain available

One of the concerns people rightfully have with digital distribution services is whether or not they will retain their purchases if the company overseeing the platform closes. That was one of my first thoughts upon hearing Fr...

Ouya gets streaming games with OnLive  photo
Ouya gets streaming games with OnLive
by Dale North

The super-Kickstarted Ouya Android OS home console will also be a game streaming box. It was announced today that OnLive's service will be available through the console at launch date, which means that Ouya owners will be able to stream console-quality titles and demos from this little box.

Here's what OnLive had to say about the whole deal:

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.

This isn't quite as big as Sony acquiring Gaikai, but it's still a pretty big deal as it makes this $100 console even more attractive as a cloud-based streaming solution.

In related news, Ouya has released some new images for the console and controller. Sexy stuff.

The guys over at Spiral Game Studios sure know how to get me excited for something. First off, this trailer for Orion: Dino Beatdown has that obnoxious, over-the-top announcer who calls the Tyrannosaurus rex "Sally." Then th...
