Bouygues Telecom and cloud gaming company Playcast Media Systems have announced the launch of Bbox games, a cloud gaming service for France. For the first time in Europe, Bouygues Telecom triple play subscribers will be able to play console-quality video games on their TVs without requiring additional hardware. Bouygues Telecom’s Bbox IPTV subscribers will have access to Playcast’s cloud gaming service through their STB.
Bouygues Telecom will introduce the new service this spring. Playcast’s service is already live at Portugal Telecom and Singtel in Singapore.
Playcast partners with renowned publishers such as Activision, Atari, Capcom, Codemasters, Disney, Sega, THQ, Warner Bros and more, and the service will go live with some of the world’s leading game titles, such as Street Fighter, Sonic Generations, MotoGP, Call of Duty, Homefront and Lego Batman.
