Why OnLive is awesome on Tablets, TVs, & PCs, oh my!

Ever streamed a "AAA" game to a tablet and used a controller to play? OnLive is evolving. GameJudgment looks at OnLive features that have turned the Cloud-gaming service from zero to hero. (Android, PC)

If only my shitty Canadian internet connection could handle OnLive.

You can really stream OnLive games to Android Tablets and use a real controller to play?

Okay...OnLive is suddenly seeming more awesome.

Dude, its been free forever now. Too bad most people can't come to grips of what has already happened? Like the Vita, it's not a failure as a gaming machine. It's a failure in catching a huge market cause it only mainly serves one purpose.

Does screen size matter!?!?
The 7"-tablet-formerly-known- as-Memo370t is looking to be a day 1 buy to me, especially now that its being branded by Google, and if OnLive works on the smaller screen, I'm all in.

NM, just used the power of the interwebs and found the answer for myself.

The answer is : Yes.

Nice...

And why it sucks on all devices: lag.
sphinct  +   1383d ago
I hear lag is a big issue for some peeps. I have OnLive and happen to have super-fast internet so it hasn't been much of an issue for me. Hopefully they can keep improving it.
Wintersun616  +   1383d ago
Let's hope so. The concept is great but unfortunately a lot of people simply don't have good enough internet connections to be able to enjoy it.

I also have onlive.

I love that I don't need to store games. Sadly my internet speed is terrible. The lag is a problem. I can only play in the morning without much lag.

I too have OnLive, and I too find the best, lag-free connection during the morning. My internet is pretty fast, and I still have a few issues.

On Live is available on the Sony Xperia Play and enables you to play games like Batman Arkham City. It works with the Dual Analogue pads also.
Unfortunately for me, you need a decent Internet connection to make proper use of it.

I messed around with onlive.
And I consider my 18 meg Connection pretty good, but the input lag is infuriating.
Onlives really nice on tablets, but if you have either a console or PC i would say its not worth the effort.

Problem is I am in Asia were Internet connection is acceptable at best. Its think its only good for the US.
