OnLive may seem unnecessary to most PC gamers. It’s a streaming service that offers games at a less-than-perfect resolution, which doesn’t fit into our need for graphical perfection. So why should PC gamers have OnLive installed on their systems?
I would consider onlive but my bandwith isnt good enough but I am going to continue following it.
I decided to try it out as I have a pretty good internet speed and 100gb/month usage. It's a lot better than I thought, though I prefer gaming on my PC for proper. Can't hurt to play a little demo or 2 or rent a game for your laptop on a weekend away. Good useful article :)
I got a steam account, so I really never considered live; but maybe live isn't so bad after all.
"Why Every PC Gamer Needs OnLive" Its this a joke or what!!!, please tell me? I have 259 games now on Steam 99% I can max out at 1920 by 1080 with 8xAA, plus I can play at least 100 in 3D 15 being native 3D. Also I have all the benefits of PhysX and Cuda. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Online - Batman: Arkham Asylum no PhysX or 3D Vision support PS3 - Batman: Arkham Asylum no PhysX or 3D Vision support 360 - Batman: Arkham Asylum no PhysX or 3D Vision support Also these 3 version run at 720P and with only Onlive running more than 0xAA Only benefit is to rent games I'm not sure of and play demos without downloading. Here is the real article title Why Every Console Gamer Needs OnLive
Renting and demos is the whole point of the article. Did you read it, or just respond to the title?
I still don't buy into it. Although I did hear them talk about incorporating into newer televisions or using it in hotels to replace that BS Nintendo 64 they try saddling you with...
