Agawi to stream games to Windows 8 with Azure

Agawi, a platform for streaming video games to internet-enabled devices, has partnered with Microsoft to bring its service to Windows 8.

Agawi, a platform for streaming video games to internet-enabled devices, has partnered with Microsoft to bring its service to Windows 8, Agawi announced today.

Using Microsoft's Windows Azure service, Agawi will stream "Facebook social and mid-core games, web-based MMOs and PC core games" from the cloud to Windows 8 devices, according to a press release from Agawi. The company's announcement also promises "AAA" titles to follow, though it stops short of naming titles.

"With Windows Azure, Agawi 2.0 enables developers to make high-performance games easily accessible across devices with the high-quality graphics and virtually instant game downloads," said Walid Abu-Hadba, vice president at Microsoft.

The Agawi announcement is the latest in a series of developments in the video game streaming ecosystem over the last several months. Earlier this year, Sony purchased streaming service Gaikai for $380 million. Last month, the streaming service OnLive declared alternative to bankruptcy and was immediately purchased by new investors.

You can watch the video below to see how the Agawi service streams games "in the post-PC era" to PCs, tablets, and mobile devices.
