OUYA to support OnLive

Another major announcement has been made for the future of OUYA. OnLive has announced that it would be supporting OUYA out of the starting gate.

This means you’ll not only get access to the great Android games that will be available, but you’ll also be able to play the AAA console and PC games from OnLive’s library.

If you’re not familiar with the service OnLive allows you to stream console-quality games to your television. It doesn’t need powerful hardware at all because it’s all being streamed over your internet connection. You could play Splinter Cell, for instance, without needing an Xbox 360.

This is a great move by both OnLive and OUYA to ensure both sides can offer a compelling list of options once the Android-based gaming console launches next year. I think I’m sold on this thing more and more every single day. You?

    Make it a Google TV device as well and I’m sold. Otherwise not so much

    it really is sounding better and better. throw in that miracast, and the gtv and ill buy one for every room in the house.

    The vizio costar seems to have this and more for only a hundred bucks.

      No game controller on the co-star.

      • HalfwayCrook

        or, maybe, you can just use a ps3 or xbox controller??

  • Jeremy

    So for an extra 40-50 you get the online controller. Without all the android apps and google tv youre buying something just so you can play android games on your tv.
