Gaikai and Wikipad collaborate to bring cloud based gaming on a tablet

Cloud-based gaming on a tablet will give a great feast for gamers. Gaikai, a key cloud gaming service and Wikipad, indeed, the firm that thrilled us with a gaming-only tablet at CES 2012, have joined hands together for a cloud-based gaming platform on a tablet. The deal will bring Gaikai’s client into the Wikipad’s projected glasses-free 3D Android tablet that touts a separable video game controller. The tablet users can thus instantly stream Gaikai titles and get involved in thrilling actions.

Well, cloud gaming is creating waves in the gaming industry. It is the way players can access new titles on their gadgets via cloud services. As of now, gamers require either to store games on their device’s storage or download from web sources that have sluggish performance. Here, cloud-based gaming brings you titles instantly with no friction at all.

Well, a special gaming tablet with quality cloud based service will be a nice thing, indeed. Fraser Townley of Wikipad says that they have chosen an awesome partner in providing great game streaming service to the customers. Gaikai is a great game streaming solution and it has a worthy collection of AAA games, he adds.

Wikipad’s proposed gaming tablet is about to come out of cover with some changes from its prototype version that we found at the CES 2012 in Las Vegas. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-based gaming tablet will feature a 10-inch display and a quad core processor apart from the earlier announcement of an 8-inch display and dual core CPU. The device will further include features like Wi-Fi, 1080p HD 2D and 3D playback, a mini HDMI port, USB 2.0 port, 8GB of internal memory plus 64GB microSD slot and much more.
