This rumour, although based on unnamed sources and unconfirmed, has an air of inevitability about it that makes it very believable. OnLive, according to CVG’s sources, is about to announce that they’ve signed on with the Kickstarter-runaway Android console.
It makes so much sense that it would be more surprising if OnLive didn’t partner with the upcoming under-telly box of tricks. OnLive already has an Android app which can be used with a paired or wired controller to play much of their catalogue of games.
The General Manager of OnLive is very positive about Ouya too, saying “If Ouya comes along and connects to your TV and suddenly puts games in front of people in an easy way and makes it low friction, that’s going to attract a new market.” Last year, we were told by the director of games at OnLive that they wanted to make their service available to any device with a screen.
Update: It’s been confirmed in a statement obtained by MCV. OnLive will be available on Ouya from day one, allowing existing OnLive subscribers to sign in and stream right away.
