That POS is coming Winter 2009, is it? I guess GameStop's not planning to carry it (understandably), 'cause I haven't seen a thing in the computer system. I'm quite certain that thing will run like crap, at least on American internet connections (I have 5mbps FiOS, and that's the BEST that's available where I live!). No reason to get excited over this thing, THAT'S for sure.:|

Damn, how good IS your internet connection? It'll have to be freaking AMAZING to stream an entire current-gen HD video game without horrendous lag.

A minimum 5mbps connection for HD gaming, huh? That's not as bad as I might have thought, but it'll also probably be useless for me since both I and my brother play games, often simultaneously. Even if our connection could support ONE OnLive streaming, two at once is pretty much definitely out of the question.

An even larger problem with the service should be quite obvious (it was also stated in the article linked in post #9): No games from Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft will be available on it. They'd be fools to sign up for this program, wouldn't they?

Also, that article is a bit out of date, having been written in March. Do you have anything more recent that explains the pricing structure? If they insist on charging $60 per game, I'm not interested. Their savings need to be passed on to the consumers! This is a kind of silly question, but do they have any Achievement/Trophy type system planned? I love those things, and would hate to lose them in the name of "progress."

Interesting. Do want, but will skip. I'll stay with the Wii and eventually Playstation 3 thank you (Still need to get an PS3).

Yeah, I checked the OnLive website. They haven't announced pricing yet, but confirmed it WILL involve a subscription fee. Not too large of one, though...they want it to be no more than $5 and get the rest of the money by actually selling the games themselves.

I'm intrigued by cloud gaming and the possibilities it offers. Thousands of people playing high-end PC games, on a modest poota/laptop, even the iplop can run it apparently. :O It's gonna need a phat connection though, to make it lag free (which is my main concern).

Also, no word on whether it'll make it across the pond as yet. If it did, it could save me a fortune!!!

Neat. I think it's an idea a bit before its time, though.
