OnLive games confirms BT launch

June 3, 2011

OnLive, the pioneer of on-demand, instant-play video games specialist, has confirmed its cloud gaming platform will launch in the UK this autumn.

Gamers in the UK can visit the onlive website to complete a free sign-up process and reserve their unique OnLive Player Tag, for OnLive play in the UK and internationally.

BT has exclusive rights to bundle the OnLive Game Service with its broadband packages in the UK and is currently running trials with customers.

“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.”
