has word on the launch of the OnLive
cloud-based gaming service in the United Kingdom:
OnLive has finally launched in the UK, but a tie-up with telecoms giant BT could give the cloud gaming service a flying start as it looks to compete with the major players in videogames.
OnLive offers streamed gaming to a television or device, meaning that – with a decent broadband connection – you can play the latest games instantly.
BT is UK launch partner and shareholder in the US company, and will offer all of its broadband customers three months free and unlimited payback of more than 100 video games to mark its arrival.
