    This is really just for PC. Playing new games on max specs costs a LOT of money, but not with a good connection and OnLive. I wouldn't buy this $99 box unless I was poor and couldn't afford the real deal (360 or PS3)

    I'm not touching it with a ten-foot pole.

    Improve the catalog and get smoother visuals and we may see something much more exciting

    it's a good IDEA and a good prospective way to cloud gaming. But they should have as many titles as they can, not just what they feel they need. And I'll tell OnLive what I've told Steam and D2D. The prices should be significantly lower because of the lack of packaging otherwise, what's the point? you can download a digital copy that you can hope is saved for the future or have a physical copy of the same price that is something you can hold on to. Simple.

    What ie the point? The games cost just as much..but poor and if thecompany goes bust,if you have a nice libary kiss it goodbye. just get an XBOX! not this silly thing!

    Yeesh. The only things I can see that interest me are a few XBLA exclusives. Also, I'm stunned at how horrible that looks. 0_o It's like a 2004 pre-launch beta 360 game.

    Im really into the idea. It exudes potential, however, all of the problems it has are huge: Lack of graphics capability, Possible lag, deletion of games after time, miserable catalog (although im sure they'll cover that soon) . It just needs to update a bit to adress these problems and we've got the next amazing tech! Just add movies (in theatre ones if possible), music, and whatever else, and you've monopolized the entertainment industry. also build them into TV's with 3D and internet capability and its heaven at last.

    Most people will have the bandwidth, but what they really need is a lower latency. My ISP gives us great Bandwidth, but rapes us on latency. This service is going to have to overcome hurdles that they can not control. I love the idea of playing a game like BC2 on a shitty laptop wherever I have a good enough connection. But if I can't even get it to work in my own home, then they've got a lot of work to do.

    I was very interested until i saw fuzzy looking graphics and a lack of games. Now I no longer care.

    On one hand I feel like a service like this is the future, on the other I don't feel it holds massive weight in the present, maybe in 5 to 10 years the gaming world will be ready, but ATM, I can't see it being a massive success unless it can find a niche and find it quick.

    + steam = awesome
  • CH3BURASHKA - November 22, 2010 11:43 p.m.

    I don't know if it's a phobia or something, but despite the promise of OnLive, I'm still not comfortable with the service. Conceptually it sounds awesome, but I'm still attached to the concept of ownership, not only of games but also of hardware. First, people were split between retail boxes and Steam games, and now I'm split between Steam games and OnLive games. If OnLive ever goes down, I (and others) would be fucked. Perhaps I'll get over it someday, but as for now I'll stick to my PC.

    I think this is a case of something being way ahead of its time. Ten years down the road I can see something like this really taking off.
  • OddWoN ER - November 22, 2010 11:26 p.m.

    i like the concept but i want my graphics, and the ability to actually keep my games
  • Aletheon - November 22, 2010 11:24 p.m.

    I wouldn't buy that for a dollar.
  • OneEyedGoon - November 22, 2010 11:20 p.m.

    I'm interested since my computer is getting too old to play current PC titles, but I'm worried about the small library and the possibility of the service going tits up, making my "copies" of whatever cease to exist. If Valve added this functionality to Steam, I'd soil myself.

    Gotta love how people try to hide there "FIRST" comments with "hmm..." or "Good read...". Just say first, you can't hid it.
  • JADENkOTOR - November 22, 2010 11:18 p.m.

    Shitty

    My biggest problem was the blurriness of the picture. The lag was also really bad in the menu of Arkham Asylum, but in game wasn't nearly as bad. It definitely shows potential. Wonder if I could get one of those gamepads separately, extra media buttons it offers would be useful.

    When is digital distribution going to die? I like collecting video games.
