Cloud gaming service OnLive has signed a deal with Android console Ouya, that will see it offer hundreds of games from more than 80 publishers when the console launches.

You can play game on the console at home and then continue playing anywhere you like, via PCs, Macs, tablets, and phones. Instant demos, offering 30 minutes of free play time, are available for every game in OnLive’s library.

“When OnLive first heard about Ouya, we were excited to see console gaming becoming more available and open. Like Ouya, we came to gaming with a new vision for making top-quality gaming accessible to more people, and we continue to look for ways to expand on that visio,” said OnLive UK boss Bruce Grove. “Ouya is rethinking the console business, making waves by using standard technology to make gaming for your living room accessible, affordable and more innovative than ever. In OnLive’s case, we pioneered a groundbreaking, cloud-based system that instantly delivers games to any device on demand.”

Ouya is scheduled to release in March next year, following a successful Kickstarter project that has so far raised more than $5.5 million.
