It’s nice to kick back while kicking butt. An office chair isn’t going to enhance your gaming superpowers!

Thankfully, Intel and Verizon just announced a plan that will allow gamers to play PC games on any TV. Of course, your PC has to be an Intel Viiv machine.

As part of the package, they will also offer PlayLinc, a game messenger service that not only allows you to taunt your competitors via IM and chat, but also offers private gaming servers and VoIP integration.

And just in case you aren’t keen on the partnership, they are sweetening the pot with on-demand games. Fora monthly fee, full versions of a variety of PC games accessed through your Media Center menu.

  • Viiv-based XP PC required
  • Features Intel’s Core 2 Duo processor
  • On-demand games: $9.95 per month
