Ever Seen Crysis Played on a Cellphone?

Crysis is the current standard bearer for PC game graphics. If your computer can run Crysis well, it's a pretty impressive setup. So it's pretty nuts to see Crysis running smoothly on a Samsung Omnia cellphone.

The Omnia isn't running the game, of course. Instead, its being processed remotely and streamed via OTOY, an upcoming server-side rendering service that'll let you play high-end 3D games on low-powered machines.

In this video, Crysis is being played through the Omnia's browser with no additional plug-ins and is being controlled wirelessly with an Xbox 360 controller.

It'll be interesting to see how many people take advantage of this when it officially launches. [TechCrunch]

Interesting demo. I'm sure the WoW addicts out there would love to be able to play from their phone.

Of course I can already do this using my Slingbox and the iPhone app. I admit that the 10 seconds of latency is a little bothersome, but I'm thinking that it might work really nicely for 3D chess, or maybe Suduko! ;)
