OnLive, venerable streamer of PC games to tablets, has a new trick up its sleeve: putting Windows 7 on iPads and Android tablets. Oh really? Thanks a lot, OnLive. There’s officially nowhere left to escape work. And the worst part? It works. Really. Well.
On paper the Xperia Play seems like a good idea. An Android phone with a slide out gaming pad. Then it was released and everyone yawned. Today’s OnLive announcement could turn those yawns into Woohoos.
Cloud-based gaming service OnLine has been developing briskly over the last half year. Their first move onto the iPad, the free OnLive Viewer app, doesn’t let you play games but rather lets you watch them as they’re being played. Huh!
