Cloud Gaming Machine to Bring Games to Your TV
From TV to mobile to the cloud gaming machine, G-cluster invites IPTV and wireless operators and game publishers to get in the cloud at CES 2013, January 8 – 11 in Las Vegas.
G-cluster, a fully featured white label service, will debut its Game Machine platform allowing operators to bring premium and casual games to the TV without the need for a gaming console.
The G-cluster Game Machine plugs into the HDMI port on HDMI-equipped televisions and connects to the home Wi-Fi network to access the service.

Players can use a game pad with a wireless receiver, or smartphones or tablets, to control play on the television, playing alone or with friends using other devices such as personal computers, smartphones, or tablets.
“With G-cluster’s cloud gaming platform, operators can achieve high margin service revenue growth with marginal setup, maintenance, and operational effort commitments,” said Taro Hashimoto, chairman and CEO of G-cluster Global.
“The tiny game machine turns your TV into a massive cloud gaming experience. Smartphones and tablets are default controllers of the game machine. It will be a natural and exciting extension of your smartphone and tablet experience,” he added.
Founded in 2000, G-cluster offers a cloud gaming platform accessible to game players worldwide. The company is headquartered in Tokyo, with offices in Pittsburgh, PA; Espoo, Finland and Paris.
