Gaikai Signs First European Partner

Los Angeles-based Gaikai, the developer of cloud game streaming technology, reported today that it has added its first partner in Europe. The firm said it has signed consumer games Eurogamer as its first media affiliate in Europe, as part of its affiliate program. The deal allows Eurogamer to stream Gaikai-powered gaimes across its various local language sites. Gaikai's technology allows users to play videogames without having to download large and cumbersome installs, instead playing them via their browser. The firm is venture backed by Benchmark Capital, TriplePoint Capital, Rustic Canyon Partners, Limelight Networks and Intel Capital, and is headed by David Perry.
