[News] [PC] [PS3] announced today the release of its free Linux Player, an application that enables you to play any PC game via a PlayStation 3 running Linux.  Well now that's quite interesting isn't it? But wait, there's more!

 The free StreamMyGame Server enables PC games to be played remotely by converting the game's video and audio into a Game Stream and sending it over a home network to a second computer where you can view and play the game with the free StreamMyGame Player. The second computer can be a PC, laptop, PS3 or Linux device. The game can be played on the second computer without any lag and the second computer does not need to have the game installed.

The StreamMyGame Server is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and all computer games based on Microsoft's DirectX8, DirectX9, DirectX10 including the latest games such as PES 2008 and Crysis and OpenGL standards.

The StreamMyGame Player is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Linux with resolutions up to Super HDTV 3200 x 2400. Compatible Linux installations include Ubuntu and Yellow Dog Linux, recommended by Sony for the PS3.

StreamMyGame will extend its services in March 2008 to enable games to be played remotely over broadband networks that have sufficient capacity such as Verizon's FiOS, Comcast's Wideband and British Telecom's FTTP. Publishers will be able to use StreamMyGame to establish Pay-for-Play services to existing PCs, PS3s and STBs.

"We believe our new Linux player will enable many new devices to connect to the StreamMyGame service. We would like to see STBs and DMAs using our technology and we have already begun development for mobile OS such as Windows Mobile and Android," said Richard.

StreamMyGame ia available free by simply registering at

I am going to check this out and let you know what I think later this week. It's an interesting concept and I remember reading about something similar lately but can't remember where that was.
