The online streaming video game service OnLive adds another high-profile partner: the upcoming Ouya home console.
In a blog post published Friday, OnLive announced it would bring its service to the console at launch next year.
“Like Ouya, we came to gaming with a new vision for making top-quality gaming accessible to more people, and we continue to look for ways to expand on that vision,” says OnLive general manager Bruce Grove in the post.
The version of OnLive for Ouya will feature “hundreds” of on-demand games, instant demos and the ability to pick up saved games on other devices such as PCs and tablets. OnLive features home console games from publishers including THQ (Darksiders II), Warner Bros. Interactive (Batman: Arkham City) and 2K (Borderlands).
The Ouya console, revealed earlier this month, features an open Android-based operating system and access to an online games store. The device is expected to sell for under $100.
According to the Kickstarter page for Ouya, the console has raised more than $5.5 million.
