You might remember HTC making its plans public to acquire a stake in a US-based online gaming company OnLive, a gaming platform in the cloud. Well, OnLive has just unveiled its Universal Wireless Controller.
Why are we telling you about this? Because this Universal Wireless Controller will work with your smartphone, among others — any OnLive-compatible device, really. Using some wireless hocus pocus to connect to your smartphone, the Controller allows you to easily play games on your smartphone.
“We set out to make OnLive available everywhere. Now that this is a reality, consumers need a way to enjoy the full OnLive experience on any device. The new OnLive Universal Wireless Controller places high-quality gameplay in your hands whether on a TV, computer, tablet/smartphone device or on future OnLive-compatible devices yet to be introduced”, said OnLive Founder and CEO Steve Perlman.
The Universal Wireless Controller will be available starting this autumns everywhere OnLive is available and it will be demoed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles June 7-9.
