We spoke too soon regarding MMORPGs and at the rate things are going, soon we will be able to play World of Warcraft on your Android phone. Oh wait..we can! Thanks to a tip in our comments from our previous post about applications to help you on your WoW journey, we know it is being worked on by some brave souls.
In the video you’re about to watch, you will see WoW being played on an HTC Desire Android phone thanks to GameStrings Platform’s remote play technology. Basically you can stream your games that you play from the cloud to any device that can access it. Here is the official description:
Hardware/environment setup for this shoot (in video):
* GameString Adrenalin Host Server with Dual-Mode Delivery running a standard WoW game install
* Client Device: HTC Desire
* Server network: Home Internet Service Provider at 2 Mbps up
* Client network: Home Internet Service Provider at 2 Mbps down, WiFi IEEE 802.11g
* Server-to-client network: 2 Peer hops, 5 node hops, Geographical separation – 80km
While still in early alpha stages, this could prove to be the downfall of all sane people who thought they were safe from things like World of Warcraft, at least for a few hours while at work. Works pretty good too. It’ll work even better on newer Android phones and those great Tegra 2 chips coming soon.
What other PC games would you want to play using this if it were possible?
Thanks to Kenney Wong for the tip!
