Report: Comcast and EA Negotiating Game Streaming Deal

May 5, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Electronic Arts and ISP Comcast are believed to be negotiating a game streaming deal, according to five independent sources speaking to Reuters. According to sources speaking to Reuters, Comcast will give some customers the ability to buy and stream EA titles through Comcast's new X1 operating system. X1 is only available in certain areas covered by Comcast at the moment.

The new deal between EA and Comcast would allow games from the publisher to be streamed from remote servers to a set top box. The report goes on to say that tablet devices could hypothetically be used as controllers for these games on set-top boxes.

Tablet-style controllers for console games? Gosh, how amazing. If only there were someone on the market already doing something like that!

Next year's worst company in America poll is going to have a field day with this - it's like the Corporate Legion of Doom.
