Ouya gets streaming games with OnLive

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.
