Stream games with Gaikai on Eurogamer.net right now

Play FIFA 12, Crysis 2, The Witcher 2 and Magicka in your web browser.

Do you like playing games? Do you especially like playing games without having to move from exactly where you are seated reading this news story?

Then we've got good news, because - as the observant among you may have noticed at the end of last week - you can now do just that on our Gaikai channel.

That's right, you can now stream best-selling PC game demos right through your browser, and all without having to step outside Eurogamer.net.

The initial games you can play are Crysis 2, FIFA 12, Magicka and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, with more to come.

We're also planning to add the service to our Eurogamer Network sites in other languages early next year, so watch out for that if, er, you don't understand the words I'm typing.

The Eurogamer and Gaikai teams are both watching to see how all this works out, so have a play around and feel free to leave us some feedback. Enjoy!
