OnLive: Cloud-Based Video Game Streaming Service Coming To The iPad This Fall [video]

Cloud-based video game streaming service OnLive unveiled support for tablets with new iPad and Android apps that will release in the U.S. and Europe this fall.

Like the company’s MicroConsole TV Adapter and Windows/Mac application, the OnLive Player App for iPad and Android will enable subscribers to stream and play “virtually all” of its 100-plus-game catalog on demand.

Gamers will be able to use the devices’ touchscreens or OnLive’s new Universal Wireless Controller to play. The OnLivePlayer App also integrates with HDTVs so subscribers can use their tablets as touch/motion controllers with their display.

The app will feature full voice chat-enabled multiplayer. OnLive says it will provide “the exact same functionality” on Apple and Android smartphones, too, allowing them to be used as game systems themselves or as controllers with an HDTV or PC.

Furthermore, the company revealed a 10 gigabit cloud-based browser or iPad, Android, and HDTV, which is designed to to deliver online content through the 10 gigabit/second web connections on its cloud-based servers.

“The power of the cloud is definitely the theme this week, displacing what had been assumed to be platforms that could never be displaced,” says OnLive founder and CEO Steve Perlman.
