Singapore’s SingTel kicked off a subscription-based cloud gaming service called ESC, which allows players to play high-powered games over the net via desktops or notebook computers with Pentium 4 chips.
It’s also possible to play games via SingTel’s fibre-optic set up for televisions.
Games are streamed over the internet in standard def, and there are currently 24 titles so far, including Street Fighter IV and Frontlines: Fuel of War. Players must play $US1.99 per day or $US9.99 a month for unlimited access.
The service joins other online gaming cloud services like OnLive in the US and Gaikai in Japan.
