OnLive on OUYA confirmed

OUYA is now pushing nearly $6m in backers on Kickstarter and with Call of Duty's Robert Bowling already on board the addition of OnLive is surely a big boost

 

OnLive has now been confirmed for OUYA, the Android-powered gaming system which has taken Kickstarter by storm. The cloud-gaming announced its partnership with OUYA earlier today.

Speaking in a statement OnLive's General Manager Bruce Grove was keen to highlight the shared direction that both OUYA and OnLive had for the industry.

"When OnLive first heard about OUYA, we were excited to see console gaming becoming more available and open. Like OUYA, we came to gaming with a new vision for making top-quality gaming accessible to more people, and we continue to look for ways to expand on that vision."

OnLive has already been running a successful cloud-gaming service in the UK offering up titles like Batman: Arkham City and Assassin's Creed: Revelations all over the internet.

The partnership will no doubt be a strong boost for OUYA who have recently had to respond to a fair amount of criticism after claims that the console wasn't viable in todays market. Speaking exclusively to T3, CEO Julie Uhrman had this to say:

"I grew up playing games on the TV and I don't think I'm alone in feeling that the console game industry has experienced a brain drain in recent years and some of the most talented developers have switched focus from the TV to mobile and social.”

Uhrman then went on reassure those who had concerns that the combined experience of the team was more than capable of making the OUYA games console into a reality.

"This is not a project we entered into blindly. We crunched a lot of numbers and vetted the bill of materials with experts. We shared our plans with our advisors, including Amol Sarva who developed the Peek email device at a similarly low cost."
