Anyone signing up...

Canidae3590d ago (Edited 3590d ago )

I just signed up, and got my confirmation e-mail, so I'll see. While I don't really see this succeeding, I'm willing to give it a try, if for nothing else than to be able to play PC games my system can't run. Who knows, it might just be the next big step, stranger things have happened.

Hopefully I am one of the lucky ones.

nutcase4u3590d ago

Figured I would give it a try. If it's not too expensive and it works well then it has potential to be a nice addition to my PS3.

In case there are fanboys that want to hit "disagree" just because I said "PS3", I occasionally play my brother's 360 when I'm at his house. whew..

silvacrest3590d ago

same old, same old

everyone else gets ignored as usual

ZombieButcher3590d ago

Its not that they are ignoring you all, The company is US based and they want to set up 4-5 Locations localy to see if it takes off. Keep the cost low so if it fails they don't bury them selves in huge debt.

And Yes I signed up.

uie4rhig3590d ago

we were gonna invest in this when we had a proper company setup (getting money from other stuff)
but i guess we will see if this was a good idea or not without getting us into debts

US only?
how about having a beta in a country with decent internet broadband?
they are setting themselves up for fail.

Daoshai3590d ago

Though Obama is giving broadband in America the largest overhaul anywhere in the world, each state is given hundreds of millions to billions of dollars, so I don't really think anyone in the US will have to worry by the time onlive comes around

DeadlyFire3590d ago

Obama's broadband plan is still few years off though. Even while its in action right now it will take 1-5 years before progress is seen. My area just got a boost before Obama's broadband plan came about.

The U.S. is usually always first for anything like this.
