OnLive has announced plans to integrate its cloud-based gaming system, which allows games to be run remotely in server farms and streamed over the Internet, with Intel Atom-based TVs and consumer electronics.

According to OnLive, this will mean that players are able to access console-quality games at HDTV resolutions and with 5.1 surround sound support directly through their Smart TVs and set-top boxes.

Apparently, once OnLive begins supporting 3D games, these too will work through Atom-based devices.

'The Intel Atom Processor CE4100 packs the processing power and features to deliver the full OnLive Game Service experience on any HDTV without the need for a videogame console,' reads Onlive's official statement.

'The combination of Intel and OnLive technology enables console-class gaming (and beyond) with no console at all.'

OnLive is currently only available in some areas of the US, but will soon be rolling out in the UK on 7 June. Further expansion is planned beyond that, but details have not yet been announced.
