OnLive now available for Android and iOS tablets and smartphones

The way OnLive actually works is it streams gaming content straight from their cloud to your PC - and now that their application is compatible with Android and iOS they’re about to completely change gaming expectations. Whenever we think about playing a video game on our smartphone or tablet, there are certain expectations and limitations we are aware of. For instance, installation of the typical Android game takes around 10 minutes or so over a 3G network connection. Though many games out there push our tablet’s to their limits, most still can’t even compare to many console titles currently out. With OnLive, you can stream any of their popular games straight to your device with no need to download software or a powerful graphics engine. It works just like streaming a YouTube video or a song from Spotify.
