OnLive adds video recording and sharing features, plus achievements

US cloud gaming service OnLive has unveiled new features to help you be more sociable.

The OnLive user forum has turned up some interesting updates to the subscription-based streaming service, both technical and gameplay based.

Top of the list is the introduction of achievements in some games, as well as a number of video options which allow you to record 'brag clips' of up to 15-minutes to share with your friends. Hopefully, it won't be long before a number of self-deprecating folk create 'comedy of errors' clips.

The social side of OnLive has received a boost with the option to find and add friends via Gmail and an overhaul of the personal messaging client.

Hit the OnLive forum for user-captured screen-grabs depicting the updates.

OnLive launched last year in the US. In May of last year that BT announced that it would be would be the official partner for the service in the UK, no date has yet been announced.
