Singapore Telecommunications Ltd (SingTel) has made what looks like a significant move into the gaming space. They have launched a cloud-based video gaming service called ‘ESC’ and announced exclusive distributorship of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play mobile handset.

The ESC (read as ESCape) service is launched in partnership with Playcast Media Systems and offers on-demand high quality games directly from the ‘cloud’ to customers on TV and PC. This service is greatly aided by the fast broadband and national fibre network in Singapore. There are 24 titles already available to gamers.
