OnLive, a hugely popular on-demand gaming service which came to Android late last year, announced tonight the release of L.A. Noire: Touch Edition, which Founder and CEO Steve Perlman dubs "BY FAR the highest-performance game ever designed for tablets."

For those unaware, OnLive features 25 other touch-playable titles, some of which have been totally redesigned to support touch interaction. L.A. Noire is the latest title to get a touch makeover and is, according to Perlman, "the highest-performance console video game developed specifically for touch-enabled play via mobile cloud gaming. Ever."

Integrating context-specific touch controls with console-quality games successfully marries high-quality gaming with the dynamic touch interaction demanded by the tablet platform, making for an awesome gameplay experience.


Those who already own L.A. Noire through OnLive will enjoy an automatic update for touch-enabled play. Those who haven't experienced the award-winning gum-shoe thriller can rent or buy it from OnLive, which will provide access through your tablet, PC, Mac, and television. To check it out, just click over to the game's OnLive Store listing here.

If you haven't tried OnLive yet, the service is pretty incredible, providing on-demand cloud gaming to just about all your electronic devices, and bringing you games that, in the words of Steve Perlman, "have no business running on a tablet, but utterly redefine the tablet experience."
