Gaikai has signed on to supply streaming game services to Walmart's new Game Center website. Games Industry says that this site allows gamers to test out games like Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 straight from their browser. That's a big ol' distribution deal!
"Over the next 12 months, when people see a video game on TV and want to try it out, they can be sure the fastest way will be on Walmart's website," Gakai's David Perry told VentureBeat. "It's an exciting time and you'll see more sites around the world doing these stealth launches with us."
It doesn't look like game streaming services are up and running yet, but you can poke around the Game Center website anyway.
