Spawn Labs HD-720 enables streaming of console games

At the TechCrunch 50 conference, a company called Spawn Labs has revealed its HD-720 box, a device that allows users to stream games from their PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, or Gamecube anywhere in the world, at 30 frames per second in resolutions up to 720p. Basically, it's the Slingbox for your games, or a sort of OnLive that uses your own consoles as the server. Once you've plugged your console into the box, if the thing works like it's supposed to, you can then play your games from anywhere that has broadband access.

The really crazy part is that Spawn Labs advertises the ability to allow other people to connect to your console and play games with you while you play at home, or watch your gameplay. Just like that, couch co-op becomes online play.

This would be great for ps3 owners as the ps3 console struggles to out put 720p at times.


Didn't MS say their new standards is 640p if 720p can't be reached? and why would MS say can't be reached? maybe because the 360 doesn't even do true 720p either which would be a disgrace.

This is pretty cool if i do say so myself, shame about its cost.

Thats pretty cool, But I didn't see anything about its latency issues.

I would like to know how long it would take from when I push my button to when the console reachs comes back and hits my current screen.

to much lag and its the end of this product.

Another problem arises,

If your not home, who's going to put the game in?
