Gaikai - Try Games Instantly in your Broswer! *56k*

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What is Gakai?

Gaikai is a cloud-based gaming technology that allows users to play major PC and console games like Call Of Duty or World Of Warcraft instantly, with one click. No download or install required. This technology powers a next-generation video game advertising network that generates sales leads for video game publishers, developers, retailers, and affiliates via online demos of games and software applications. Users are presented with an offer to try the game or app before buying it, therefore giving them hands-on experience with the product right at the point-of-sale.

Is this just an on-demand subscription service?

Nope. Gaikai is not a subscription-based, gaming-on-demand service. We use our technology to generate sales leads for video game manufacturers, retailers, and affiliate websites. Users browsing sites in our network will be presented with the opportunity to try the latest video games and software applications before they buy them.

Can I help test games on Gaikai?

Sure. Please sign up to be a Gaikai beta tester by clicking here. As a beta tester, you'll have the opportunity to preview games before the public gets to see them.

Currently, we are only accepting beta testers who are 18 or older.

I just got done trying out mass effect 2 & it was not a good experience. The demo was very laggy and skipping most of the time. At time I would skip & my character would be turned the wrong way

I signed up for the beta tonight so we will see
