The Freebox is an ADSL modem that is used by a French Internet service provider called ‘Free’. Whilst the normal services are provided in ADSL and telephone, the Freebox v6 will be offering quite a bit more.
The Freebox Revolution v6 will let you watch Blu Rays, use the web and now, play HD games. This is the first ISP to offer such a service. It seems the technological world is moving towards a one box for everything style. This is being looked upon as ‘smart TV’. If you want to learn more about smart TV then head to the bottom of our article where you can find a video to explain.
As a Free subscriber you will gain access games in HD. Some of the titles that will be available from day 1 are, Asphalt 5, Real Football 2011, Uno, Let’s Golf! 2 and finally N.O.V.A. It’s good to see that they have a good genre range of games to start with, sports, action and even a card game. The games will cost between €4.99 and €6.99 and there are some other planned titles for release very soon.
According to Faisal Alani over at computerweekly.com, Gameloft, who are a game developing and publishing company have worked with Free on the project. Apparently Gameloft described the gaming experience as “somewhere between the Wii and PS3 due to the controller and motion-sensing remote.”
