Ubitus GameCloud®, a holistic turnkey solution designed to support simple adaptation of original PC/MMO games to run across multiple device platforms over cloud and most concurrent users support with lowest power consumption, has successfully enabled multiple global top-tier LTE carriers, including but not limited to Verizon Wireless, NTT DoCoMo, LG U+, and One2free, to commercially bring their cloud gaming services to the market since September 2011.  The "one million" record to date also marks Ubitus as the dominant cloud gaming provider in Android-based LTE phones and tablets.

"It's truly amazing to see how fast the one-million-user milestone has reached in such a short period of time, and this again proves that consumers would embrace new way of gaming experience as long as the service adds value to their lives," said Wesley Kuo, CEO of Ubitus.

Let the game cloud do all the heavy lifting and create new disruption

Leveraging speedy LTE wireless network, cloud gaming empowers consumers to play the games they love on the mobile devices that are always with them, even for the console, PC or MMOs titles that were not possibly available on mobile devices before. With Ubitus's Game Development Kit (GDK), those games can support dynamic in-game control options where users can either play the games using the touch screen of their device(s) or a Bluetooth controller as if they are playing with a PSP/mobile console.  On top of playing anytime, anywhere, cloud gaming has also enabled a new type of disruptive service model which consumers can pay for gaming service plan to enjoy rich library of game titles, instead of buying each one of them individually and that can only be played on certain hardware device, like PC or major consoles.

As mobile devices continue to proliferate and more and more users embrace cloud for their gaming experience, just like the success we are witnessing in video and music streaming, cloud gaming service is the ideal place for game developers to take advantage not only in reducing the effort of creating numerous version of their work but also gaining maximum title distribution and reach regardless hardware platforms, operating systems and screen sizes.
