Post Onlive - The Future of Video Games
Well that's what it say's. The Site is here: http://www.onlive.com/index.html

I don't fully understand the details but it said something like being able to play games on entry level computers (and I think they're talking big games like Crysis :yikes: )

It all looks very interesting and my mind boggles at how they'll pull this off, but they have been working on it silently for many years and have only recently revealed themselves.

It's definitly one to watch and it even has a partnership with EA! So I get the feeling this is going to be seriously Big! :yikes:

It's supposed to be coming out in Winter of this year.

What?

Looks like a better version of Steam and Xfire, but rolled up into one.

I've heard of this.

Basically they have a headquarters with super computers that run these games and stream them to you over the internet to a box that goes on to your pc via usb.

One example is them playing Crysis on a Net-PC

Imagine the amount of downloads it must take to stream the game directly.
:faint:
