InstantAction pioneers near-console quality in-browser gaming

InstantAction and GarageGames are launching a service that enables users to play single- and multiplayer fully hardware accelerated games in-browser across both PC and Mac platforms. Seems a bit primitive at the moment as it’s still in development, but it’s set to go live (not sure if that’s beta or the real thing) in January ’08. Looks like a few Xbox Live Arcade titles are set to be included in the launch, as well as a team-based online first person shooter in the vein of Dynamix’ Starsiege: Tribes, plus a number of as-yet-unannouced titles from both major and indie developers.

Not much real info on the site yet, but there’s a Gamespot interview here that explains the system in greater detail.

    Hey Amnesiacs: Thanks for talking about this. I just wanted to let you know that we have in fact expanded the site with press, screenshots and so on. More to come. We also have a beta blog at instantaction.typepad.com.
