A Japanese streaming content provider will launch the country's first cloud-based gaming console, a small modem-like device that plugs into a TV and offers subscription access to titles from US$5 per month.
Broadmedia, a Tokyo-based company that offers streaming movie and TV channels as well as hosting services, said its "G-cluster" service will go live June 20. The service will launch with dozens of games that are streamed to the console over a wireless Internet connection.
