OnLive Hits Positive UK Launch

By Igor Kharin,

OnLive CEO Steve Perlman stated that the platform has a global customer base sitting in the ‘tens of millions’.

The UK launch of the game streaming service was extremely positive according to Steve. He even mentioned that the demand was so high in the UK on day one, that more servers needed to be activated to cope with the number of players.

OnLive is a cloud gaming platform where games are synchronized, rendered, stored on remote servers and delivered via the Internet. With 150 games currently available on the service including the Assassin’s Creed series, Deus Ex Human Revolution and DiRT 3, be sure to check out the incredibly popular alternative to physical game content.
