Before I dive into what OnLive is and how it works, let me start by saying that you should read every word of this article as this service has the potential to completely change the way games are played. If it works and gets proper support from both publishers and gamers, you may never need a high-end PC to play the latest games, or perhaps even ever buy a console again. That is not an exaggeration.
wow, its pretty amazing what they can do these days
might be the end of console and pc gaming.....nah not yet.
The Future is here. I want this thing now
we start with computers designed to work.
then we decide that computers are to expensive for each person so we develop terminals.
then we decide it would be cheaper to make all terminals their own computers because we don't have the bandwith without giant cables.
then we create a way to make terminals cheaper and increase bandwith and we're back to terminals and servers.
this seems awesome, but it definately wouldnt turn into the mainstream, simply because of these reasons, HDMI only, Online must be on always. and a couoke others.Still it seems AMAZING. if they offered some type of silver service where its basic with no pay, im buyin a box. Still the "console" version needs a diff name.
It would work out as the next generation of PSN and Xbox Live. :D
