Spoon Cloud Gaming service launches

Spoon is a company that has been in the cloud computing and virtualization realm for a while. The company has announced the launch of a new Cloud Gaming service that has over 200 games that can be played instantly on your desktop. The games need no downloads and you only have to install a browser plug-in to play them.

The games include titles like Jewel Quest, Farm Frenzy, and other game clients like Second Life. The service is being offered for free and was announced at GDX in San Francisco. The Spoon service runs using a hybrid combination of remote and local computing resource. That reduces the bandwidth needed to play and lets things run smoothly.

The cloud service will automatically sync the game between the devices allowing the games to play smoothly. Some of the games require the player to purchase them and the Spoon service supports DRM and an integrated payment process. Partners offering games with Spoon include Alawar Entertainment, iWin, Namco Networks, and 1C.
