OnLive games will stream to Ouya at launch


Supporters wondering exactly what they’ll be able to play when the open, Android-based Ouya console is released can wonder a little less today, as the indie-friendly console maker announced that OnLive’s library of hundreds of streamable games would be available at launch. The move should somewhat allay concerns that Ouya’s TEGRA 3-based chipset won’t be able to compete with its more powerful console competition, since games running on OnLive’s servers can be as resource intensive as they need to be.
