During GameStop’s quarterly earnings call yesterday, the company revealed it has reduced the scope of its streaming games service, Gamasutra reports. Built on technology acquired from Spawn Labs and Stardock, the cloud-based gaming package will now be restricted to PCs, tablets and IP-capable TVs. The service is still expected to go live this year, and GameStop is apparently in negotiation with a host of content providers.
