SEGA and Ubitus team up for cloud gaming fun

Cloud technology company, Ubitus and SEGA have, today, announced a new deal which will see SEGA games coming to the Ubitus North American and European platform from April 2013.

To be honest, I hadn’t heard of Ubitus until this announcement. But this isn’t SEGA’s first encounter with Cloud Gaming in recent years, many of the companies Mega Drive (and a few more recent) titles are available to stream via the OnLive gaming service. So I would just imagine something very similar to that, but maybe more?

Anyway, there’s more information in this handy press release, below.

I've been a SEGA fan pretty much all my gaming life - though I am also SEGA Nerds' resident Microsoft fanboy (well, every site needs one) and since SEGA went third party, I guess it's now ok to admit that I like Nintendo and Sony too :0) I'm also the Content Manager of the big data company, Digital Contact Ltd, in the UK: http://digitalcontact.co.uk/company/team/
