Ouya, the hackable game console that's breaking Kickstarter records, recently announced it will team with OnLive to offer cloud-based games.

"Through OnLive, Ouya will offer hundreds of playable titles from great publishers. Hundreds of games, streamed right to you, on demand,” Ouya wrote on its Kickstarter page. “Pretty sweet.”

The deal means that Ouya will be able to offer at least some type of affordable games when the console launches next year. The console, which still has two weeks left to raise money, has already raised over $5.5 million, far surpassing its initial goal of raising $950,000.

“Ouya is rethinking the console business, making waves by using standard technology to make gaming for your living room accessible, affordable and more innovative than ever,” Bruce Grove, general manager at OnLive, wrote in a statement. “In OnLive's case, we pioneered a groundbreaking, cloud-based system that instantly delivers games to any device on demand.”

The availability and quantity of Ouya games has reportedly been a concern for at least some for its 43,000 backers.

Previously, the company announced small partnerships that would bring a limited number of exclusive games to the console, including a prequel to Human Element.
