A gaming service that aims to kill off the traditional gaming console will begin streaming popular games over the internet in June this year.
OnLive, which launched to much fanfare in 2009, announced details of its service at the GamesBeat conference. Instead of games taking hours to download or buying them off the shelf, OnLive promises games on-demand.
"OnLive breaks the console cycle. We don't need new hardware devices," said company founder Steve Perlman. That sentiment was echoed by his chief operating officer Mike McGarvey.
"We want to take your dollars from hardware and let you spend it on software. We are a new platform and we're building a network and infrastructure to last for the next 30 years of gaming, not the next five years," Mr McGarvey told reporters.
OnLive will be available for a monthly rental fee of $14.95 (Â£9.99) for subscribers to then buy or rent games over the internet...
