Users will get to play recent PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 console titles from their TVs through their existing set-top boxes. While the companies haven't listed specific titles ready for its launch, the list of publishers involved in the cloud gaming service include Capcom, Sega, Activision, THQ, Data Design Interactive, Codemasters, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Disney Interactive Studios, Blitz Games, Atari, and Strategy First.

Playcast Media CEO Guy de Beer said that the reason the companies were doing this is that the country is one of the largest consumers of video games in the world with no real console presence.

Playcast and CJ Hellovision have yet to announce a release date for the service or details on its monthly subscription package.
