“OnLive Available on Ouya at Launch”
Android console Ouya has recently signed a deal with the cloud gaming service OnLive. So what does this mean? Over hundreds of games from over 80 publishers will be available upon the console’s release next March.
The UK boss of OnLive, Bruce Grove, stated; “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.
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.”
New designs of the Ouya console and its controller were also released along with the statement “Please note that the design is still in progress—but we couldn’t hold out any longer. We needed you to know that the controller has two handles. You can hold it in both hands. P.S. We’re still deciding on the buttons. For now, we’ve stuck with the colored circles as placeholders. But don’t fret, we won’t leave out colorblind gamers.”
