Oh no, that would be terriable to us gamers....not OnLive, anything but OnLive /s

Onlive sucks and is bound for the scrapyard.

They have already gone the streaming music and movie rout. Most areas have a very short list of quality games and MP gaming is out of the question.

A Pub/Dev would have to design a game for Onlive from the start to get it to work right but I dont see that happening fast enough unless Apple or Zynga get involved.

Lol. I think there's only 2-3 games that are made by or published by THQ out there. Everything else is from another developers and publishers.

this is why onlive is garbage

you would lose all of those games

and then like old reliable you would have to buy physical

I hope it isn't true. Thq is one of the last remaining developers I grew up playing games with in the 90's

That is why I am skeptical of Onlive. Even if the internet speeds improves and cloud gaming becomes successful, I am sure MS/Sony/nintendo would offer the same service together with physical copy to give consumer the choice+ exclusives from each company.
