HTC Flyer: OnLive cloud gaming on tablets (video)

Is this the future of gaming?

We’ve spilled the beans on OnLive’s plan to expand and take the UK by storm, but one of the more intriguing elements of the cloud gaming service’s plans was the revelation that it will be heading to tablets.

As it turns out, OnLive’s new universal controller will work natively with most tablets coming to market, gifting OnLive subscribers access to console and PC quality games straight on their tablet’s screen. Assuming you’ve got a decent WiFi connection, you should be able to game without lag on either an iPad or Android tab as soon as the service arrives on these shores in the Autumn.


How does it work in practice? Engadget’s had a hands-on play with the service, and we have to say it looks mightily impressive. Check out the video below to see for yourself:
