GDC: OnLive adding achievements, voice chat

OnLive is planning a few new features to put it closer to other digital distributors, according to the company's panel at GDC. Joystiq reports that vice president of engineering Joe Bentley presented its plans for the coming year.

The cloud gaming service is working to include achievements, voice chat, game invites, and YouTube uploads of Brag Clips. Developers will also be able to support wireless controllers when games are played on mobile devices like the iPhone, iPad, or Android phones.

We're not sure exactly when these features will be included, of course. Bentley mentioned all of these features as targets for this year, though, so we shouldn't have to wait too long to get our meaningless pats on the back -- in the cloud.
