Cloud Gaming: OnLive And What's So Awesome About It

Germaximus: "I love almost every video game I play in all genres. As a kid, I played arcade games, and at one point in my life, I thought that Atari was God. Then the consoles became more and more sophisticated, until finally, gaming became an interactive experience with online services like Xbox Live and MMORPGs like World of Warcraft. OnLive is the next generation of gaming -- streaming games on the "cloud" that I can play with other people, or just sit back and watch, if I want to. Other gamers can check out what I'm doing, and I can go see what they're up to. I'm still in love with how OnLive performs even after two years of using it."

Give up. Apple don't want it obviously. Seriously OnLive has said it so many times its in Apples hands for approval but nothing ever happens.

They need to fix the controller lag.

And it isnt my connection because mine is 100MBs.

That comes down to technology at the data centers and Internet. Both are constantly improving services so things get better all the time as to how fast is the problem.

Unfortunately latency is one of the issues with cloud gaming, data can only travel so fast. I'm sure this will continue to improve though. That's not saying it's horrible right now though. I've been using the service for 3 years now and for me it's so miniscule that I hardly notice it. It's definitely there but it has never affected my ability to play and enjoy a game on the service.

I used OnLive for a while, then Gaikai came out. No looking back.

I don't see how Gaikai stopped you from using OnLive. They were never even remotely close to providing the same service. Gaikai only allowed you to play demos of games through their website. OnLive provided a complete platform on their client and/or microconsole.
