Imagine being able to convert your PC game into an IP game stream which can be shared over the Web and played remotely on a range of devices. A UK based company called StreamMyGame.com has launched a games sharing site and a software plug-in which it claims enables users to post hypertext links to their games on the site, which can then be played remotely by other visitors to site who click on the links.
Right now, StreamMyGame is only available for games compatible with Windows XP, Vista and games based on DirectX8, DirectX9, DirectX10 and OpenGL formats, with claimed resolutions up to Super HDTV 3200 x 2400. However, the company promises that before the end of the year a Linux version will be released, enabling PC games to be played remotely on PS3 and other devices.
"We are embarking on a new paradigm in the gaming industry fuelled by advances in computer hardware, network speeds and the want of gamers to have more freedom," said Richard Faria CEO of StreamMyGame. "We network the power of their main PC so it can be used to play high end games on other PCs and laptops around the home. I believe the demand for high resolutions will drive the sales of high end PC hardware".
