Want to Play Halo on the Go? Spawn Labs May Have Your Solution

Spawn Labs is looking to allow you to take your console games wherever you go by allowing you to play any console game from a remote desktop or laptop. The service is looking to allow you to play them in high definition on any computer capable of video. The game will be running on the console at your home but can be played from virtually any computer provided both sides have a broadband connection.

In order to get the service, you have to buy the Spawn HD-720 box which costs $199 that takes the video signal from the console and converts it to video that can be seen from any computer. The software used will take the inputs from you at the remote computer and transmit them back to the console using Spawn Labs’ magic technology. The only requirement is that you have the game in and console on before you leave the house.

    FYI I work at Spawn Labs, and I'd like to make one minor correction here. You don't have to leave the console on. You can turn it on (and back off) remotely from the Spawn Player when you want to play. So you don't waste energy or burn up your console. Also as an FYI you can do anything you can do from the console menu system, so you can load arcade games off the hard drive and play them, access a media server if you've attached one to your console, etc. More than just playing the game currently loaded in the DVD drive. Thanks!

    Hey David. Thanks for letting me know about the needed correction. The product you're offering sounds amazing and very useful for more than just gaming. I use an HD-DVD player along with my Xbox 360 and I suppose I could watch DVDs remotely with the device as well. Thanks for that extra bit of information, David.
