GameTap and Intel bring gaming to the digital home

GameTap and Intel Corporation announced that GameTap is verified to work with the Intel Viiv technology platform. GameTap offers access to original programming and more than 300 videogames, playable from a broadband connected PC. These games are from a wide variety of platforms, genres and publishers.

With the '10 foot' version of GameTap, consumers will have on-demand access to a universe of games and video programming on their television monitor through their PC running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. As an Intel Viiv technology verified service, it is now easier to play GameTap using wireless USB peripheral game controllers and MCE remote control.

To play, game lovers just download the GameTap software, which acts as a gateway to the GameTap vault. The multi-level vault features a diverse mix of titles and platforms ? something for everyone. These are organized in a series of game rings, including 'hot picks' and user favorites, as well as games organized by game type and game system. Once a game is selected, each title displays an associated "InfoCard" that includes directions for playing, control options, and tips, as well as parental controls and top scores from the GameTap community.
