Gaikai is the company spearheading this 'port' to the new play format. In a report over at Silicon Angle, Gaikai EVP, Robert Stevenson, said “MMOs have always been one of the key genres that we’ve wanted to deliver via the cloud – never before has it been possible to play MMOs in this way.
“And we couldn’t be more pleased to showcase Gaikai’s technology by streaming Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online, which are both fantastic multiplayer gaming experiences with legions of loyal fans.”
Both of these games are free-to-play, with microtransactions providing the dollars to keep them supported.
There's a lot of potential here. In the not-too-distant future you could be able to play Lord of the Rings Online on your iPad through this technology, or through an IP-enabled TV, your home consoles, or even something like the Vita. Being able to play your favourite MMO anywhere, anytime, is a good deal if you ask us.
