Ubitus’ new partnership with China Telecom will bring cloud gaming to China’s upcoming 4G LTE network. Ubitus will also power LG’s U+ C-Games cloud gaming service on Google TV’s set-top boxes. Konami, Nexon and Neowiz have also joined with Ubitus to deploy cloud-enabled services for their games in Korea, Japan and the US.
