Social network titan integrates cloud gaming technology
Cloud gaming vendor Gaikai is now streaming select titles through its new Facebook app, the company has confirmed.
The Facebook application, currently in beta, will be the first serious test of whether triple-A games can exist and thrive on the social games platform.
Social gaming has fast become an industry phenomenon and the most successful games on Facebook so far have been more carefree and casual strategy games.
Gaikai will provide free high-end, console-quality game demos to Facebook through its video streaming technologies. Games are controlled on remote servers that feed gameplay video to an array of devices.
The Facebook Gaikai app is exclusively available in North America and Europe, which means it will be theoretically available to about 500 million of the social network’s user base, providing they each have an impressive internet connection and are viewing Facebook through a desktop device.
