GameNow maker Ubitus (a Taiwan-based company) partnered with Sega, Konami and Square Enix to offer cloud-based versions of games such as Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 and Dragon Quest X overseas. Various Capcom-published PC games such as Devil May Cry 4, Dead Rising 2 and Resident Evil 5 will also be available.
