CLOUD GAMING SERVICE Onlive has announced that it has an app available for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Up to now the service has only been available for Windows and OS X PCs but this expansion brings 'console-class' games to mobile devices. The app is live on the Android Market but not Apple's App Store.
Onlive CEO Steve Perlman said, "Today marks a major milestone: OnLive is now delivering the latest, console-class, top-tier games-literally to your fingertips-on tablets and phones for instant, on-demand play anywhere, anytime,"
A total of 25 games including L.A. Noire and Lego Harry Potter have been adapted to work with a touchscreen. The rest of the library totalling nearly 200 titles will be playable using the Bluetooth Onlive Wireless Controller, which will go on sale tomorrow for £39.
The app is free to download and users will get Lego Batman: The Videogame for free too. However, other games have to be purchased individually but can be played on multiple devices.
Onlive allows users to play high quality games no matter what the hardware of the device, relying instead on a good internet connection. If the connection drops then the game resolution is reduced to avoid lag. µ
