Core Online is a cloud gaming portal just through the browser like Gaikai, Like the other two Cloud gaming services you can buy the game but with Core Online you can watch ads to play levels of the game at no cost besides time. So far there are only three confirmed games on the site Hitman: Blood Money, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and Mini Ninjas. There are plans for Tomb Raider: Underworld and Gyromancer.
