Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

After a successful first year in the US, cloud-based game service OnLive is finally heading to the UK this autumn.

Customers with fast internet connections will be able to stream games such as Borderlands and Prince of Persia straight to their computer or TV set, no download required.

OnLive's UK page now shows a countdown set to end June 7 at 8pm. Sign up then and you'll be given an OnLive UK Founding Member account for early access.

Next week, the company will see its 100th game added to the roster - Red Faction: Armegeddon. With a deal recently announced for Disney Interactive Studio content, expect to see many more titles appear by the time OnLive touches down on British shores, though.

While tweaking its service across the Atlantic, the company has been busy developing various relationships with HTC, Intel and Vizio, which has seen OnLive embedded in a range of consumer tech.

There are also plans to reveal a wireless universal controller that will work with any OnLive compatible device. Further info on that is expected at E3 next week.

OnLive will launch in the UK in collaboration with BT. Read more about the service in our WTF is.. Cloud Gaming feature. ®
