G-Cluster is a Japan-only cloud gaming service, with which players can stream select games through a G-Cluster device and play them on an HDTV without need of a console. The service also allows remote streaming through game-specific mobile apps on iOS and Android platforms. Square Enix used portions of G-Cluster technology to provide its Dive In service to these same platforms.
G-Cluster was originally an international venture founded in Finland in the year 2000. Its technology had been offered as a service of broadband providers worldwide. For unspecified reasons, the global company filed for bankruptcy and the service was ended on May 23, 2016. The platform and its assets are currently owned by Japan's Broadmedia Corp. under the name BroadmediaGC.
