Lego Batman 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction are available to play on Ouya systems via a cloud-based game streaming service released to beta this week.
Developed by Playcast Media, the streaming feature is similar to services like OnLive and the upcoming PlayStation Now.
"Playcast bridges the visual computation and content gap between Ouya and the consoles," said company CEO Guy de Beer in a prepared statement. "In this beta, we will be employing for the first time the power of a public cloud system, and a set of technologies that is set to overcome the limitations of streaming over the open Internet. Initial results have been very encouraging, and we hope to expand the program soon."
Playcast states in a post that a slew of publishers are already signed up including EA, Ubisoft, Konami, Warner Bros, 2K, Namco Bandai, Square Enix, Capcom, Codemasters, Disney, Sega, among others.
Playcast streams games to set-top boxes and allows users to play with controllers it provides. First made available in South Korea, Portugal and France, where it offers access to games like Batman: Arkhan Asylum, Playcast later launched in 2013 in North America.
