OnLive brought its app to the Android Market a couple of weeks ago, and they’ve reportedly been inundated with requests from Sony Ericsson Xperia Play owners demanding support for their beloved slide-out controls.
Well, you don’t ask, you don’t get; ask and ye shall receive; etc etc. OnLive has introduced support for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play’s specialness.
"From the moment we launched our OnLive Android app, gamers began asking about Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY game control support," the chaps told Pocket-lint.
"The OnLive app for Android has been updated to support the slide-out game controls on the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY smartphone, enabling gameplay of almost all OnLive games, including the latest AAA console-class titles.
"We listened and delivered. Now Xperia PLAY gamers in the US and UK can play almost all of OnLive's 200 premium titles-including hit AAA games like Saints Row: The Third and Assassin's Creed: Revelations-on their Xperia PLAY smartphone with a full console-class experience, including multiplayer and social features."
In a nutshell, OnLive makes use of the cloud to deliver gaming goodness over the cyberweb. No huge downloads required, just jump in and away you go.
The OnLive app is available for free from the Android Market, and requires at least Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). A full list of compatible devices is provided within the app description.
