Gaikai joins forces with Walmart.com
Game streaming service now available on retailer's Game Center site
Gaikai has signed a deal with Walmart to provide game streaming services to the retailer's new Game Center website.
"Over the next 12 months, when people see a video game on TV and want to try it out, they can be sure the fastest way will be on Walmart's website," Perry told VentureBeat. "It's an exciting time and you'll see more sites around the world doing these stealth launches with us."
Walmart's Game Centre now allows consumers to test out games, including EA's Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2, in their web browser, without leaving the site or downloading software.
Gaikai has also recently announced a partnership with Eurogamer to provide a similar service, allowing visitors to the site access to selected demos.
