astra -> Intel and TransGaming announce (9/30/2009 2:50:34 PM)

Intel has entered into a partnership with TransGaming to launch, which will bring on-demand gaming to HDTVs.

The service, which will launch in sping 2010, will use Intel CE Media Processors to deliver on-demand games via internet-connected set top boxes and consumer electronic devices.

Customers will have access to a library of games, which they will be able to purchase or rent, or pay a monthly subscription.

Intel is investing $500,000 in the partnership, which will compete against rival cloud-gaming services such as OnLive.

Users of OnLive can play demanding games on PCs with a low spec, or even netbooks, which could be bad news for makers of expensive games consoles.

OnLive is in the beta testing stage in the US, but is expected to hit Europe and the UK before too long.
