Gaikai targets full game service ‘by 2011’

Listen I love this idea, but guess what Onlive has beat you to it.. I just got in the beta im a hardcore gamer have all consoles all handhelds, ipad's etc I was blown away by what I saw last night using Onlive..

It's not perfect and there is a slight blur to the games over a sharp rendered local game, but I played unreal tournament 10 players online with very little LAG using a 30 controller had zero problems locking on targets and playing.. Played for hours...

Im sold that OnLive can be the future if costs are right..
