So it looks like Epic and Mozilla are working to bring the Unreal engine to the Firefox browser. A video
was recently released that showed the Soul and Swing ninja demos from epic running in the browser. The impressive thing about this all is that this is happening without any additional plug-ins installed.
Now I think this shows promise.Sony is already working on their game streaming service (Playstation Now) and it is able to be played from many devices. We have Onlive that is still a part of the conversation and games like Unreal Tournament Online that were able to be played free from your browser. This has been a discussion for a while now but it seems like we are that much closer to a console-less future. Check out the post on the Mozilla blog for more information.
