OnLive Gaming Platform Coming To The UK This Autumn

Cloud based gaming platform Onlive will be launched in the UK this autumn, the company has confirmed.

OnLive allows users to play games on a host of devices including televisions, PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablet PCs.

The company, which completed its first year in June, reported that it would make key announcements during the upcoming E3 gaming conference.

OnLive said that the registration for the OnLive UK service will begin with the E3 conference with the service launching in full in Autumn.

According to an article on MCV (opens in new tab), the company has already partnered with British Telecom to offer its services bundled with the telecoms broadband packages. BT is already testing the service on its network.

“OnLive will hit UK shores with a vastly more expanded offering than the US launch a year ago,” said Steve Perlman, OnLive Founder and CEO.

“OnLive UK will launch with over 100 games, including the latest top titles, full compatibility across a wide range of HDTVs, tablet/smartphone devices and most PCs and Macs, as well as a wide range of exclusive social features, including massive international spectating/voice chat, Brag Clip videos and instant-play Facebook integration.”
