OnLive has teamed up with Ouya in an agreement to offer the cloud-based gaming service at launch.

In this arrangement, gamers will be able to experience hundreds of games from more than 80 publishers, as well as access to demos for almost all OnLive titles.

OnLive's Bruce Grove said: "When OnLive first heard about Ouya, we were excited to see console gaming becoming more available and open.

"Like Ouya, we came to gaming with a new vision for making top-quality gaming accessible to more people, and we continue to look for ways to expand on that vision.

"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. In OnLive's case, we pioneered a groundbreaking, cloud-based system that instantly delivers games to any device on demand."

The Android-based Ouya console is due out March next year.
