Recently, OUYA announced that it joined forces with OnLive, and that they would be incorporating the cloud game service and its 300+ stable of games to the OUYA console.
A few weeks ago, the gaming and developing community banded together to show their support for the Android-run OUYA console. The Kickstarter campaign raised more than $5.5 million and ensured that the system would see the light of day in the near future.
One of those most excited for the new system was OnLive, a gaming company who pioneered cloud-based, on demand gaming with their own service. OnLive was ecstatic to find out that the OUYA console would be open and is essentially a dev kit so anyone with the proper skills and training can create their own games. Naturally, a partnership seemed like a perfect idea.

Over the last few years, the rise of companies and services like Gaikai, Onlive, and of course Steam have really shown that the industry is starting to lean towards cloud-gaming, and I’d even dare to say that the next-generation of consoles (which many say could be the last) WILL support some kind of cloud-gaming service to compliment the traditional console disc-based and digital download gaming functionalities.
Remember those rumors stating that Sony was partnering with Gaikai to bring PS1 and PS2 backward compatibility to the PS3 (or perhaps to Vita or future consoles)? There has to be some evidence that this will happen very very soon.
Onlive brought their big guns to E3 this year; announcing their new Multiview feature, their LG TV compatibility, in-browser cloud gaming, and more new upcoming games than you can shake a stick at.
Since launching two years ago, Onlive has gone from industry dreamer to heavy hitter. With almost 300 games available for anytime, anywhere, cloud-gaming on multiple devices like iDevices, Android devices, PC’s, Mac’s, and even microconsoles, the service has amassed millions of fans and avid subscribers.

Onlive Wireless Controller Review
There are thousands of debates on whether the Dualshock 3 or the 360 controller is better than the other, so its great to see a controller that mixes the best (and worst) features of both the Dualshock 3 and the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller and offers gamers added functions that are only available on the cloud gaming service.
The Onlive wireless controller feels a lot like the Xbox 360 controller in that its a bit bulky, has the shoulder bumpers as well as triggers which make shooters just a little bit easier to play. It also feels a bit like the PS3′s DualShock 3 in that it’s thumbsticks are located close to each other and it’s directional buttons are separated and are easy to press, which makes the controller perfectly acceptable for fighting games.
The OnLive Game Service is an on-demand video game platform that allows players to enjoy the latest games instantly over a broadband internet connection. It allows gamers to play their games on a TV using the Onlive Microconsole, or on PC or Mac computers using the Onlive app software.
With it’s community growing larger daily, it’s the best time to join the Onlive gaming service. Onlive offers gamers the ability to play their games wherever they want; on whatever display or system they want. It’s a cloud-based gaming service so players never have to deal with storage or location issues.
