OnLive’s announced the introduction of three new Microsoft clients for its cloud-based games service. Microsoft Word, Microsoft Powerpoint and Microsoft Excel are now all able to run from OnLive Desktop, a dedicated app for the programs. The app is currently only available for iPad, but support for Android, smartphones, PC, Mac and monitor/TV support through the OnLive MicroConsole is inbound. Pro and Enterprise versions are also due to arrive shortly. It’ll launch for free in the US tomorrow, with a UK rollout soon.
