L.A. Noire: Touch Edition available now for tablets

L.A. Noire is now available for tablets, thanks to the efforts of video streaming service OnLive. The company claims that L.A. Noire: Touch Edition is the "highest performance" game available on tablets today - possibly due to the fact the game is actually running on remote hardware.

The OnLive strategy is for the game to be played remotely, on some pretty grunty machines capable of handling the load. The end result is then streamed to customers, including people with somewhat lower-spec systems.

Instead of forking over the cash for a costly hardware upgrade (which is next to impossible for many tablets), gamers can instead subscribe to the OnLive service and access all manner of games ported for touch interface as well as a desktop / set-top box arrangement.

The company claims that L.A. Noire Touch Edition is "the highest-performance console video game developed specifically for touch-enabled play via mobile cloud gaming," which is a hefty call given that there are quite a bunch of them floating about these days. OnLive itself features 25 games available on the system to try for free - some featuring a virtual gamepad and others redesigned specifically for touch interface. (If you've got an OnLive universal wireless controller, there are a further 200+ other games for you to check out.)

The OnLive App is available right now for both Android and iOS, you will need a subscription in order to enjoy the full functionality.
