hmmm i've been meaning to check this service out for some time now. I have a stable and unlimited internet so that won't be an issue for me. I'm curious as to how Onlive performs even at the worst internet options available.
I have Comcast internet and it isnt unlimited anymore. Last year they made it a rule that you cant go over 250G/month otherwise they will cancel service.
For the sake of gamers, keep small talk out of the loop. A journalist stating 'what gamers desperately need' is obviously a form of self-delusion and keep the 'Ít's cheap' argument out of it' cause the costs will be far greater if we all loose our ownership and offline gameplay. Don't be fooled into short term thinking. There is no way back if this gets installed. Think 'keep the price low at first and when we all stepped in, raise the price+make games like demos with endless paying for DLC, if you don't like it, bad luck cause when this will be all there is in the future they can blackkmail us with banning and revoking all our rights to our online collection. All feasible with the press of a button if we let this happen. Think people don't be fooled! If companies have everything online only, they have the means and will abuse their power. The hardware graphics cards industry will be killed too, cause all the hardware we will ever get any access to will be a controller. Too bad for the self build level mods, graphics tweaking/engine modding etc indie development will suffer too. Current developers need to think about how they started themselves.
