Hundreds of games streamed to your TV.

Cloud gaming service OnLive is coming to Ouya, the new $99 Anrdoid-powered game console everyone’s talking about.

OnLive will offer Ouya players “hundreds of playable titles” from more than 80 publishers, streamed right to your television set. These games can be accessed across Ouya, and “on the go” via “PCs, Macs, tablets and phones.” Demos will be available for “every game” in the OnLive library, allowing players to experience “up to 30 minutes of each game” before deciding whether or not they’d like to make a purchase. The app will be available on day one when the console launches next year.

“Ouya is rethinking the console business, making waves by using standard technology to make gaming for your living room accessible, affordable and more innovative than ever,” said OnLive general manager Bruce Grove. “In OnLive’s case, we pioneered a groundbreaking, cloud-based system that instantly delivers games to any device on demand.”

Separate from the OnLive news, the latest images of the Ouya console and controller have been posted. See them below.

    I wonder if Madden NFL 12 being in the screenshot means EA is supporting the console, as well.

    Also: not really digging the controller. Doesn’t look like it’ll feel good in the hands.

      Yeah, it looks weird.
      Also, what’s up with the d-pad being under the left stick.
      I need symmetry! xD

        The d-pad being under the left stick isn’t a bad thing. An Xbox 360 controller has the same format. And I’m able to use it fine. It’s just the shape of it. It looks uncomfortable.

          Looks like a cheap madcatz knock off controller. Ah well, whatdya expect for $99?
          My mind is certainly still open to this thing at this point.
          I agree with MCX though, I hate that staggered format of the sticks.
