Ouya game system will soon be streaming big-budget titles thanks to deal with Playcast


Cloud gaming service Playcast has announced that it is running a beta trial of streaming games to Ouya’s Android-based consoles.

Announced today, the move is a win-win for both companies. For Ouya it allows it to boast instantly streamable headline titles, and for Playcast it extends its potential customer footprint.

Initially, a small set of games is available but this will be expanded “to the company’s full library of AAA titles in the coming weeks”. According to Co-optimus, Lego Batman 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction are available to stream right away.
