OnLive Brings Console-Class Games to Tablets & Phones: Gives Away a FREE Game. Touch Controls begin rolling out now, the OnLive wireless controller goes on sale in the US and UK soon. The Android/iOS apps should be available shortly.
"...Gives away a FREE Game" Still doesn't beat having the game in my hands, let alone on my hard drive...but in the cloud??
U can lose the physical copy or it could get scratched and damge rendering it useles... Cloud ftw ;)
I could lose Internet access, cloud FTL. :P
that reply doesnt even make sense , you could also easily break or lose the tablet/phone
@Baka but the games remain :) as they are linked to your account and not ur phone i suspect :).. @Slt... get a better internet connection ;)
Ha, perhaps not, it's understandable, OnLive threatens what many consider the "right way" of doing things. Although there's no denying playing Crysis on a £200 tablet on the train is pretty cool, better than just sitting there looking at the back "physical" case anyway. Or perhaps Angry Birds. Depends on your needs and wants. Options.
Do people actually use this service? I would love to know the numbers.
If this works well then this is one step to the future.
Hell yeah go on onlive. Bring the future of gaming. Is just too cool play your games wherever and whenever on any device. Like crysis on the tablet then on your tv ending on your pc. Cloud saves+cloud gaming=awesome
It places far too much power in the hands of the publishers and OnLive. They would control all access to all content at all times. You legally own nothing. People are stupid & blind to be mislead by this, reminds me of a Roman senate-member quote out of the movie 'The Gladiator' about the mob in Rome that is being distracted by bread & games while the Republic of Rome is being dismantled:'Take away their freedom & rights and get applauded for it'.
For anyone who's confused about the free game, it simply appears in your My Games list in the app a few hours after. I was wondering what happened to the free game promise, thank you for this article :D
Played it in xperia play.cant use playstation buttons.highly dissapointed in that.also lego batman is free.but I cant seem to controll just 1 character.they both move,simultainiosly.n e 1 know if im doin something wrong?
