Comcast partners with EA to release XFINITY Games platform

by John_A

Screenshot 2015-07-14 14.35.05Comcast has partnered up with the giant video game publisher EA to bring some gaming titles to Comcast’s X1 platform. This partnership has lead to a new service called XFINITY Games that’s launching in beta today that will allow you to play video games on your TV using your phone or tablet.

The service streams games over the internet to X1 set-top boxes and utilizes smart devices as a controller, so customers won’t need any extra equipment.

As of right now, it looks only mobile EA games are available, so don’t expect to stream Dragon Age to your TV without a dedicated gaming machine. But for the casual gamer with a decent internet connection, it’s a pretty cool concept.
